The chocolatey boozy goodness that every BA stout should have.

Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter.

A: Pitch black with smallish one finger mocha colored head that settles to a thin ring around the edge, and leaves little to no lacing.

S: Sweet bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and coconut. Charred oak and molasses. Aroma reminds me a little of BCBS which is a good thing.

T: Rich dark chocolate and vanilla. Tons of bourbon influence. Faint notes of oak, cherry, and coconut.

M: Full bodied but not thick and nicely carbonated for a big stout. Some noticeable alcohol heat.

O: Another winner from CW. This is one of my favorite BA stouts for sure!

Cocoa, bitter chocolate, oak and coconut. Big dark chocolate, vanilla and oaky booze in the taste. Very well balanced. Perfect amount of sweetness. Super solid.

I am biased because this is brewed just outside of my home town. That said, this one stacks up well against the other BAs out there. CW really knows what it is doing with its BA.
