Review #650. 750 ml bottle served in a CCB snifter. 2012 vintage

A: Pours a very dark black color with a tan head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to thin ring that leave some minor sploches of lace behind.

S: Bourbon up fron couple with some figs and various dark fruit. Sweet barrel presence with some caraml and light vanilla. A little stone fruit sweetness with some roasted malts and chocolate.

T: The barrel is upfront with some oak and smooth bourbon. Bakers chocolate and some milk chocolate with heavy roast. I'm missing the coffee flavors from this guy, but it's still really good.

M: Silky smooth mouthfeel, medium to heavy bodied. Medium carbonation level.

O: This is definitely in the upper echelon of BA stouts. Having more coffee notes would have definitely set it apart. Still a very delicious brew that I'd love to have again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A-Black, two finger brown head with some lacing.

S-Bourbon, chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and a tad vanilla.

T-Bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and ends with some bitterness. Great balance.

M-Think and creamy with some carbonation.

O-One of the best non BCBS stouts I've had. Would love to compare this with Parabola. Easily blows the regular Speedway out of the water.
