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

One I can finally scratch off my "want" list.2016 bottle 9.6%ABV per bottle label.Pours jet black into a goblet with a creamy mocha colored head atop that settles into a soapy-like mass.Full on bourbon and chocolate in the nose,this is young and pretty brash.The feel is awesome,creamy and smooth with the right fullness for a beer of this size.Bourbon/vanilla and dark fruit really hit ya up front on the palate with chocolate and molasses finishing up the flavor profile,the roast is quite subdued.Well I have finally had it....and it lives up to billing,smooth and the it's not a bourbon bomb,kick ass!
