2013. Pours pitch black with a thin brown head and decent lacing. Lots of chocolate and vanilla on the nose with notes of bourbon, oak, molasses and licorice. Like the aroma, chocolate and bourbon on the tongue with some roasted barley and licorice. Full bodied with very little carbonation. Finishes dry. A standout in the crowded BA Stout market!
