At first crack I thought this beer was very one dimensional but in a good way because it was a bourbon dimension. The sweet aroma of bourbon burns the nostrils and dulls the senses. As it warms up so do I and the caramel, coffee and chocolate reveal themselves underneath the cloak of bourbon. It tastes thin for such a bold beer, even with a hard pour it produces minimal head, but what little froth is there is chocolicious. Drinks almost like an impossibly dark wine. Really good beer, on the cusp of great, Id add vanilla or maybe dry hop it to give it more complexity but what the hell do I know.

Bought this while in Chicago earlier this week and had the 4 pack shipped home along with some Surly and Pipeworks at the suggestion of the owner of Fischman Liquors.

As an aside, I strongly recommend stopping in there if you're in town. Super nice employees and an awesome selection of Midwest brewers that don't distribute to the Northeast.

Appearance is pitch black like dirty motor oil with an almost non existent head and no lacing (the only negative with this beer)

Smells of Vanilla Bean, Almonds, Mocha, Bourbon, Cream, Butterscotch, Dark Fruits, Cloves, and Maple Syrup. Simply one of the best palate wetters ever.

Taste follows the nose immensely well. Drinks strong and warm for only being 9.5% A great sipper and is quite reminiscent of BCBS (which is why it was recommended)

Mouthfeel is on the thinner side but is still super smooth with low carbonation & goes down slick and leaves a splendid bourbon flavored coating on the tongue

Overall and awesome BBA Stout and a deal for $16 in my book. Would love to see this over in Philly but will most likely have to wait until the next time in town
