A: opaque brown pour into motor oil black in a snifter; shiny black surface slightly edged with thin dark foam.

S: rich black malt molasses and bright berry tartness

T: many flavors mingle freely, from the dark black malt base, bringing dark chocolate syrup and cold espresso and blackstrap molasses, to the juicy and tart berries, bursting with dark, sweet, and tart jam flavors, spiked with rye whiskey vapors and spice

M: smooth and medium-heavy, moderately dense, nice tartness

O: an exceptional double stout - wonderful use of sweet tart dark berry to complement the sophistication of the whiskey barrel aging; no better base beer than BCBS.
