Bottled November 2013. Poured into snifter

A - black with dark brown edges.

S - hints of bourbon and some roasted malt.

T - rather bland, some chocolate and roast with light vanilla flavor.

M - lots of carb

O - nothing special here. Maybe it would be good if it was the first BA stout ever tasted.

12 oz. bottle poured into a brandy snifter

A- Black with a fleeting brown head and minimal lacing.

S- Roasted malts with some bourbon notes.

T- Mild, sweet roast. Vanilla, bourbon and chocolate.

M- Smooth on the tongue with no harsh bourbon taste as some of these BBS's tend to have. Very clean finish. Particularly low carbonation.

O- A decent enough BBS but not particularly complex. Very mild - this might be the BBS to serve your friends that have never had one.
