poured from bottle into tulip. Started off way too cold, but I gave sufficient time to let it warm up.
A - black as hell, very little head, a ton of lacing.
S - bourbon, bourbon, coffee, roast, bourbon Absolutely breath taking. I smelled it every time I took a sip
T - see Smell, awesome taste. Bourbon, roast, coffee, bitter chocolate, and barrell are all present, Just a hint of alcohol burn. Absolutely fantastic.
M - the perfect viscocity for me. Just the perfect balance.
O - a true winner, glad this brewery is semi close to me. Will definitely recommend to every one.

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.
