Sampled Dec-2013, poured into a snifter

A- pours pitch black with a small foamy dark tan head that has decent retention and alcohol legs upon agitation

S- big bourbony barrel notes up front with strong notes of vanilla, sweet caramel, dark chocolate mixed with dark roast coffee and sweet caramel malt

T- sweet and malty caramel malt meshes with big oaky vanilla and bourbon flavors, sweet dark cherry kicks in mid-palate along with melted milk chocolate and caramel, finishing with a hint of coffee with more chocolate and bourbon

M- medium body with low carbonation, slightly syrupy but quite smooth mouthfeel

O- this beer is pure bliss, the layers that the bourbon barrel adds can be savored for hours. Seek this one out.

The difference between a West Coast bourbon barrel and midwest to East coast is generally significant. The Westies get dried out barrels that impart a lot of oak but not a lot of booze.

This is the exception to the rule.

A perfect mix of booze notes and oak are laid into this great stout.

This stout without the BB is good. It is now awesome!
