2013 on tap during Migration Week. Surprising no one, an all around awesome BA stout. Still prefer Parabola but not by much.

Smooth.... a bit too smooth for a 13-14% Imp. stout. Very delicious at any rate.

On tap at Ale Arsenal. Lucky to find it! Huge bourbon on the nose. A bit of spice at the back of the throat (from bourbon I'm guessing), rich an creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of raisins, fig, sweet bourbon, malt. Overall: great BA stout! Not my overall favorite but great.
