Black belle

Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter. No visible bottle date.

A: Pitch black with one finger dense mocha head that settles quickly and leaves some slight lacing.

S: Bourbon, cherry, vanilla, and dark chocolate.

T: Sweet bourbon and rich chocolate fudge. Subtle cherry and vanilla notes.

M: Full bodied and well carbonated for a BA stout. Finish is a touch hot.

O: Very nice BA stout although a bit pricy. My favorite of the Blackstone beers that I have tried. (488 characters)

Thanks for the share, Ray!
Typical stout appearance. Roasty aroma, hint of booze. Decent stoutish taste, some dark roast, dry oak, light notes of cocoa powder, and a subtle dab of bourbon. Body was about medium, mouthfeel was good. Overall not bad.

Never even heard of this brewery until I saw this bottle, but they've been around for over 20 years apparently. (362 characters)
