It pours almost completely black with a moderate mm or 2 of mocha head that fades into a soft ring around the circumference of the snifter . The nose is of toasted coconut, bakers chocolate and a little booze. The taste is chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Reminds me of eating a toasty brownie dipped in vanilla icing. The body is a little thinner than I expected, but undoubtedly a contender in the world of relatively low ABV BB Stouts. This is my first CW beer ever and I can't wait for this in a fantastic trade with with jdonahue81. Cheers to beers!

2014 in a tulip glass. Poured relatively thin for a double stout. Dark brown in color, not very opaque - more porter in appearance IMHO. Smell is awesome - bourbon, vanilla, roasted malt, a little fruitiness. Taste is great as well - bourbon is not overwhelming and the vanilla really shines with some nice malty and chocolate undertones. Very little hop flavor or bitterness. A little on the thin side vs other similar stouts, carbonation is good. Overall,a very balanced bourbon barrel stout that seems to be ready now - will be great to see how it ages.
