A: Pours a dark black, impenetrable black. Puffy, milk chocolate brown head towers, a full inch high. Sticky lacing lines the glass, amazing looking beer.
S: Quite nice, get the immediate bourbon aroma, warm smelling, not overpowering. Other note I get is just pure chocolate brownie or cake, very sweet and rich. Not much on the roast.
T: Unbelievably good. Immediate flavor is that bourbon tone, warming, soothing. Get plenty of the big vanilla flavor expected to accompany the bourbon, tastes like vanilla creamer. Here's where the huge chocolate comes in, tastes like a thick fudge brownie, very sweet. Think of Godiva truffles. Beer finishes out with more roastiness then picked up in the nose, nice deep roast that lets it finish clean.
M: Right on target for this type beer, big bodied brew with a creamy, small bubbled carbonation. Reminds me of a good chocolate milk.
O: I've had a couple very good BA stouts lately, and this may be the best. Just incredible flavor profile kept hitting with different aspects of it's complex profile. Flavors are well integrated and balanced, wish I could get more.
