2014 vintage - 22 oz. bottle

A - pitch black

S - mild chocolate notes, not much bourbon

T - pretty nice bourbon and chocolate notes

M - too thin for a stout this big

O - A good effort and a solid brew, but they have a ways to go to catch up to the best BB stouts available

Picked up a couple bomber bottles and am enjoying one which is about 9 months old. Poured this beauty into a snifter. Opaque black with a half inch of coffee cream colored head. Smell is burnt chocolate and light bourbon.

This beer has come a long way in a few months. Very tasty and a beautiful balance of chocolate and bourbon. I don't like too strong of a barrel presence and this stout delivers. The bourbon flavors are there but it does not take away from the the solid chocolate stout base. This beer was a very unexpected treat!,

I have one bottle left which I will try an age another year. I can't imagine it could get better but we will see.
