poured from a 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass. 2013 vintage.

Poured what appeared to be inky black, but when held up to the lamp, some reddish and burgundy tones. 1 + finger of thick oatmeal colored head. Did disspiate somewhat, but retained as an at least covering all the way down. Not agreat deal of lacing.

Aroma was mostly of vanilla and bourbon, neither particularly strong, with a faint chocolate mixed in. Very appealing.

This tastes excellent. The bourbon is ever present, but not overwhelming. The vanilla gives a delicious sweetness. This beer is perfectly balanced.

Mouth is full, and rolls around the tongue, which definitely savors the flavor. Although you get the bourbon, it is extremely drinkable for a 10.0abv, but must be respected with some restraint.

Have had this beer several times, and it's always a great choice. This was the beer that turned me around on BBA stouts, as first tries from other breweries were very bourbon heavy. This one acchieves a wonderful balance. Thoroughly reccomend it.
