Pours a black color with a fairly tight toasted khaki colored head. Settles quickly into a small cap.

The aroma is of a lovely caramel and vanilla. Candy bar quality. Nice chocolate from the nibs as well. A slight bourbon note. Seriously, nice candy bar aromas.

The taste is of a light roast with a big caramel sweetness that brings along some vanilla. Subtle milk chocolate flavors mix their way through. Some dark bitter chocolate as well. The bourbon is very subtle; hides itself well with the vanilla notes.

The feel is light to moderate, a bit underwhelming for a stout. The carbonation is a tad fizzy. Quite sweet on the palate but has enough of a roasty bitter offset. A touch sticky in the finish.

A very tasty stout. Not a bourbon bomb by any means; it is actually kind of light in that department. I really dig the chocolate, vanilla, and caramel notes. Not too strong and the play well together.

2014 vintage bottle poured into an ommegang snifter.

Pours a deep black with khaki head - not incredibly viscous. Smell is good, but nothing too overpowering - certainly smells tasty but nothing striking here. Taste is good as well. I was pleasantly surprised by this - lots of chocolate, roast, creamy mouthfeel even at the low ABV (for a BBA stout). Not too much bourbon, would have preffered a little more. Roast and slight bitterness on the finish.
