2013 Vintage. Had on-tap at Appalachian Vintner. Served in a short Oskar Blues glass.
A- Pours a midnight black color with a 1/8 inch brown head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a sparse amount of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves a thin broken ring behind.
S- Immediate waft of medicinal oak combined with a maple/brown sugar/caramel sweetness.
T- Hits all the right notes with a pronounced sweetness that plays off the bourbon flavors damn near perfectly. Solid dark roast sets a nice framework for the other tastes to be seen in their full glory. Drinkability is high.
M- Semi-creamy with medium-low carbonation and the fullest of bodies.
O- A stellar BBA Stout where the moderate ABV allows the beer to sing in harmony from start to finish. So glad I got the chance to try this.

Bottle I brought to share to Curran's tasting.
Pours a thick, dark black, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing, not much.
Smells like chocolate, bourbon, roasted malt, and booze. The aroma is fairly bourbon-forward.
The taste is similar, however, the bourbon is better integrated into the smell. There's some cookie dough, cocoa powder, Hershey's syrup, roasted malt, bourbon, and only the slightest booziness- the alcohol is hidden well here. Some slight caramel and vanilla as well.
Medium bodied, but like Lindley Park, could be a little thicker for the style. Still quite creamy and rich in the mouthfeel, with low carbonation. Very drinkable.
Another winner from Olde Hickory, they make some great BA stouts.
