The legendary Prop 14. Notes below. Tried to be thorough. Bottled 03NOV14 0931.

Nice motor oil pour, good weight. Not much lace, the tan head of foam slowly faded into nothingness.

Cinnamon, chocolate, roast nose. Balance is incredible, yet subtle at the same time. No tricks, just a very well balanced vanilla adjunct BA Stout.

Same as nose, subtle vanilla. Lingering roast malt and fudge. Subtle booze. Again, awesome balance. Nothing has fallen off at this point expect a coconut water presence.

The mouthfeel has a great weight, with a good carb level still present. Sticky, and buttery smooth.

The beer pours a Pitch Black with a thin khaki head that recedes immediately. It has low carbonation. The beer smells of fudge, charcoal, vanilla, cinnamon, bark, dark fruit, and a little bourbon. It tastes of cinnamon, fudge, vanilla, charcoal, dark fruit, with a hint of bourbon. The beer has a medium body, with good complexity. This was a great bourbon county beer, but not quite what it once was. Smoother but the coconut is completely gone.

Bit the bullet and bought at Clybourn brewpub. Still holding strong. Not overpowering cinnamon treat.

Cassia and subtle cacao on the nose. Decent depth and mouthfeel, but have had many Bourbon County that offer more here. Really opened up after a few minutes, but it seems cinnamon-type stouts are difficult to execute at a very high level
