2013 Vintage poured into a Dogfish Snifter

A - pours thick and jet black. Used motor oil

S - Bourbon and roast, nothing incredibly strong though

T - bourbon, roasted chocolate and deliciousness perfectly balanced. Doesn't get much better.

M - creamy and silky smooth

O - One of the best BBA stouts to date.

2012 vintage - still very roasty toasty and chocolatey. Bourbon has faded slightly but still very delicious
