poured from a bomber bought at sheffields. Poured into a pint glass and pours a deep black with no real head
Powerful and rich aromas of black coffee, bourbon, dark chocolate, raisins and malt aromas too. Very good depth, but the tones felt like they were holding back a bit
full bodied with a really good feel. Good depth with flavors of raisins, a bit of bourbon, along with chocolate and malts. You get teh bourbon flavor, but not a boozy quality to it
A really good bourbon barrel stout. Holds the alcohol very well and has a great feel

Poured from bottle into Hoppin Frog snifter. Bottle date is 2013. Date of review is 3/8/14.
Appearance- Almost pitch black. Just a tiny bit of light shines through when held up to a bright light. Quarter finger of creamy tan head that disappears within a minute. Tiny little bubbles are floating up from the bottom, which is cool looking.
Smell- Bourbon and green apples right away. After that I get vanilla and smoke. This is smelling much more like a brandy-aged beer than a bourbon-aged beer.
Taste- Taste is significantly better than the nose. Bourbon and chocolate blow my taste buds apart! Smoke and vanilla are there, just like in the nose. I detect chocolate chip cookies cooked in a smoker and dipped in bourbon, and I LOVE IT!
Mouthfeel- Thick, syruppy and luscious...my mouth feels like a just ate a handful of bitter dark chocolate covered coffee beans.
Overall- Really solid beer...Is this on the same level as BA B.O.R.I.S., KBS, BA Blackout Stout or BCBS? No, of course not, but it's really good and worth trying.
