Delighted to have been able to trade for a 4-pack of this long-sought-after beer.
Look: Dark as night with a bit of tan lacing after pouring into my trusty Stone tulip glass.
Smell: Wonderful bourbon from first pour all the way through the 45 minutes plus of sipping this beer. Added smell of oak, char and roasty coffee.
Taste: Initially, heavy bourbon goodness. As beer warmed over the next 45 minutes, added oak and dark coffee melded with the bourbon.
Feel: Medium thickness with some residual coating of the tongue.
Overall: A terrific upgrade from a wonderful base stout. The bourbon barrel aging adds another dimension to this Dark Horse Classic. Highly recommended.

There are many really, really good BA Stouts out there. They very from year to year with some having richness, balance, ridiculously complex, nuance, and integrated flavors. This is one of those beers and their BBA is consistently one of the best.

Look is dark brown almost black with light tan lacing.
Smell radiates bourbon
Taste is initial bourbon but the malt an coffee start to balance in as it warmed.
Feel is more of a medium thickness with a nice finish.
Overall this is a fantastic beer.
