Served in a shaker pint because that was all that was available at my in law's place. Had this one on Christmas day 2012!

A: Poured a nearly pitch black color (or lack of), with a touch of ruby poking out around the edges when held up to a light source, and a spider web-like head that eventually became mocha clumps.

S: Bourbon Bombs R' Us for sure, with a buttercream flavor in the center, and a nice balance between the cocoa and vanilla.

T: Like the nose, the bourbon was upfront, with a good amount of vanilla extract combine with some sort of candy-dipped solvent, and lots of oak. I dug it!

M: Not too sweet, infinitely chewy, with an icky, sticky lacing, and boozy, bourbon-y awesomeness.

O: One of the best BBA Stouts available in my local area. Also, the price is right!
