330 cl bottle from a trade in Iceland a couple of years ago. I like the non-BA George and the BA version improves on the base beer. Really nice barrel aroma and flavor, but it doesn't overwhelm the beer. Mikkeller is really doing a nice job with its BA stouts.

2011 bottle poured to Mikkeller gold rimmed Teku at Kulminator in Antwerp. Pours pitch black and thick with a small dark mocha head on top. Aroma of chocolate, anise, lots of roast. Flavor is chocolate graham cracker and lots of anise--more than I’ve had from other variants--some cardboard and roast. Very low on the bourbon flavor, but very smooth and easy. Smooth and rich bodied with low plus carbonation. Very nice brew, though don’t like this one as much as the cognac or base version.
