Poured 2014 bottle into New Belgium globe

A-Pours opaque black with a 1-finger dark tan head. Very good lacing.

S-Aroma of vanilla from the wood, with a mild note of chocolate and bourbon beneath.

T-Flavor of coffee with chocolate, and maybe some raisin underneath, before the vanilla and some light heat from the bourbon come through in the finish.

M-Body is full, but a touch watery, with a light bourbon in the finish.

O-Overall a great stout, could get ride of that water down mouthfeel. Was glad to have found this one.

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.
