2012 bottle

A- Deep dark pitch black with medium to medium low on lacing, dark coffee in color. Minimal legs.

S- Even at it low ABV relatively speaking with some other big BA stouts, this comes off as a chocolate-first bourbon bomb. Nice toffee and creamy malt notes in there too! There is a lot going on in this beer.

T- Following the nose with big chocolate, a very nice calm and very present bourbon presence. The toffee and smooth malt is there to finish a superbly made BA stout.

M- My knock on Lindley was the lack of carb; this has the perfect about of carb and it is very smooth and very creamy. Love it.

O- Olde Hickory is new on my radar, but I love the BA stouts they are doing!!

Pour is jet black motor oil with a small amount of dark mahogany head. Nose is quite nice, lots of rich malt and a lot of wood and bourbon notes. Strong fudge and caramel. Taste is a bit more woody up front, slightly chalky malt mid palate, rich fudge quality is a touch muted, some dark berries in back and bourbon through the finish. Full bodied, dry finish, soft feel, a touch slick in back, nicely carbonated.
