22 ounce bottle, bottled on 06/23/17 (CA). Served in a snifter, the beer pours a dark brown/black color with about an inch tan head that stuck around a little while. There's a small amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like bourbon, pecans, roasted malt, vanilla, oak and some licorice. Taste is similar to the aroma, with nutty, bourbon, vanilla, oak, coffee, roasted malt, molasses, licorice and dark bready flavors all noticeable along with a slight hoppy bitter finish. All the flavors mesh well together, none seem to overpower the others. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's coating and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. It's a little boozy but boozy in a good way. For only being a quarter bourbon barrel aged, there's a nice amount of it noticeable in this brew. I liked this a lot, I'd buy it again! $9.99 a bomber.

2015/2017 Vintage- Pours blacker than djimon hounsou. Pecan and bourbon on the nose letting you know sweetness is in your future. Medium plus mouthfeel for the style. Pretty bourbon forward and sweet off the bat. Pecans come through when it warms. Big stout that isn't too cloying. Better than a lot of BB stouts that get more recognition.

22oz bottled poured into glass.
Look: Black small amount of lacing.
Smell: molasses, chocolate, pecans and bourbon.
Taste: molasses, pecans, chocolate, oak, bourbon, and rye, along with a hint of spiciness.
Feel: a little heavy, the way a stout should. Can feel the alcohol, but at 13% that is to be expected.
Overall: Great beer, perfect example of a stout. Would buy again.

Poured out of a 22 oz. bomber into one of my tulip glasses, this beer pours a very dark brown, practically black color with a tan head that's about an inch thick when first poured that settles eventually to a thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with a big cluster swirl of foam on the beer's surface. Aromas of dark, roasted malts, pecans, rye, and oaked bourbon are certainly present. A bit of hops too. Flavor wise it is pretty much the same, with big toasted malt sweetness along with pecans and rye, followed by the oaked bourbon notes, which are surprisingly strong considering that only 1 quarter of the batch of beer was bourbon barrel aged before being blended with the remaining 75%. The earthy hop bitterness is also present, really coming through strongly as the beer sits and warms a bit, and adds a nice balance to the strong malt sweetness and pecans. Has a slightly crisp, somewhat chewy, slightly oily, fairly smooth yet rough, full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a dry finish and aftertaste for sure. Yet another very excellent take on this style by Stone and friends!

Black and silky looking with a small chocolate head. Great looking carbonation when rocking the glass. On the nose, lots of molasses, candied pecans, bourbon/alcohol, dark chocolate, and leather. In the flavor, much of the same as the nose. Lots of molasses, and the bourbon comes through nicely, but, not harsh. The feel is silky smooth, dry on the finish, fairly thick in body, with nice full carbonation. Overall, a nice tasty brew, and I'd like to age a couple.

Pours a deep, dark brown color with a moderate brown head that recedes quickly. Minimal lacing.

Aroma kicks you right in the nose, then jams you're fingers up there to add insult. I wouldn't call the aroma offensive, as it's a bit pleasant after the initial shock. It's very distinctive, and a bit harsh. Heavy on booze, roasted malts, and nuts. Dark chocolate and roasted coffee.

Taste follows the nose, with a thick, creamy complex mixture of roasted nuts, coffee, and heavily roasted malts. Booze actually takes a surprising backseat here, not nearly as prevalent as it was in the aroma.

Medium bodied, very thick, creamy, and boozy. This one is pretty dangerous, leaving me buzzed but not yet tired of it after one bomber.

Overall, this beer is an experience if nothing else. I like it, but I could see it being polarizing. A big beer with a strong aroma and complex taste, definitely worth a try.
