It's full bodied, deep black, with a smell of bourbon, hints of vanilla, and chocolate. Beautiful strong taste of a mixture of coffee, chocolate and bourbon and goes well with a good piece of steak. This was by far one of the best beers and I would love to find more places that this one. As of now I only know sunset in Allston but if anyone else knows where I can find this in Boston then please share.

2012 Vintage consumed 7/14/13

A - Very near black with a nice finger of chocolate colored head. OK retention and lacing. 4.5

S - Tons of super sweet chocolates and cherry/raisin dark fruits. Vanilla, bourbon and a light but sweet dark fruit aroma 4.75

T - super sweet and alcohol burn initially. The burn ligers but transitions into a vanilla bourbon sweet raisin and cherry flavor which hangs around until the finish and through the aftertaste 4.75

M - full bodied minimal carbonation. very chewy/sticky (more so than BCBCS) 4.75

O - Definitely one of the best biig stouts I've had. Fantastic desert beer/slow sipper. Very sweet 4.75

2013 Vintage consumed 12/9/13 14.9% - I found it to be very similar with a more significant bourbon nose but not flavor.

2012 Edition Bottled 9/20/2012

Appearance: Black, almost no head.

Smell: Chocolate, cherry, dark fruits, some bourbon-like flavors like vanilla. Seriously complex.

Taste: Chocolate again. Rich and boozy. Bourbon. Raisins. Vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, little carbonation.

Overall: Big, delicious sipper. Do not drink this cold. So many flavors from the bourbon barrel aging come out as it warms.
