2013 vintage. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a motor oil black with a dark brown coffee collar of head. Very good retention, no lacing.

S: Big dark chocolate and bourbon, supported by ample roast, vanilla extract, a bit of fig.

T: Tannic oak imparts a dry almost harsh quality, cola, milk chocolate, sharp honey, touch of espresso and dark dried fruit (fig, plum). Finishes off dry.

M: Thin, medium-light body, not unexpected given the ABV. Light carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.

O: Pretty good, but honestly no better than much more available BA stouts. The low ABV and mostly dry taste tilts this more toward the drinkable end of the spectrum.
