Poured into a stout glass. Deep brown color with a light tan head. It smelled of cordial cherries, with a hint of bourbon. Nice malty flavor with chocolate undertones. It had a bit of a boozy finish. Velvety feel across my tongue. Overall a very enjoyable stout. Could sit and have more than one of these on a cold winter day.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

poured 12oz bottle into chalice. 2012 vintage.

A - Black with a lighter off white semi fluffy head. Fair retention and spotty lacing.

S - The nose is bourbon (held up well with age) with hints of roasted malt and chocolate, slight vanilla, marshmallow and caramel.

T - The bourbon is quite pleasant after 2 years. Roasted malt and chocolate overtones with sweet caramel and marshmallow.

M - Very light in carbonation with a medium mouthfeel.

O - This beer has held up very well and I prefer it with some age on it. I usually like BB stouts fresh, but this was a bit harsh when fresh. The age mellowed it out, but kept the bourbon notes. Quite good with 2 years on it.
