Thanks to nflmvp for hooking me up with an awesome package today. I had never heard of this brewery until today. He gave me a 6 pack of this beer.
It pours dark black with a creamy mocha colored thead that leaves lacing like a hot cocoa.
The aroma is of butter rum, burbon, vanilla, chocolate, coffee. It is pretty intoxicating.
The flavor is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, burbon, with a nice alcohol warming. This is a damn good beer and I am glad I have 5 more to hang onto for a while.
The mouthfeel is not as chewy as a lot of stouts I have had but it has a nice creaminess to it. It is medium to full bodied with light carbonation. It has just enough carbonation to bring out the flavor to its fullest potential while giving it a nice creaminess.
This is a pretty drinkable beer but look out cause it'll get ya.
I highly recommend this one if you are ever in the Junction City, WI area it would be well worth it to stop and pick up some of this. I do believe it is limited from what it says on the label.

A: Transluscent mahogany brown with garnet highlights. Poured wispy with no head and no lacing into a snifter. Got some mocha head once poured into a pint glass. Nice, but I want by BBS to be sexy.
S: Treacle molasses, plums, pit fruits, oak, bourbon.
M/T/O: More of an oak bomb than anything else. Grainy wood notes, spicy peppery finish. The finish was thin, which wasn't the best combo with the flavor at the time. Chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon flavor mid-palate-once again thinner mouthfeel; it was kinda like chocolate soda with a shot of bourbon thrown in. Ok, let' wait 15 minutes and let it warm. Thickens up a bit, and it's an oily oak bomb. Fruity base stands out more, dates and chocolate, but not decadent in presentation. Fruity and sticky.
