This is a big bourbon forward chocolate beer. Dark and covered in a fading tan head that spots the glass in lacing. Big bourbon and oak nose with chocolate appearing as it warms. Taste is sweet with bourbon, molasses and oak. A little hot for me and the Bourbon overpowers the chocolate a bit but a really damn good beer.

September 2014 bottle poured into large snifter

Black pour topped with brown dish-soap like bubbles. Aroma is sweet with the promise of that bourbon taste that we all love. Bitter chocolate, whiskey, slight smoke. This was a lot thinner and slicker than I was hoping for. Bitterness was also to the point of masking most of the sweetness that was in the nose. Good, not great.

2015 vintage, kept refrigerated. Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Smell is chocolate malts and bourbon. Taste is simple dark malts, bourbon without much heat and hints of wood and molasses. Not complex although slightly better as it warmed up. More carb than I like in a BA stout
