2.9/5  rDev -33%

Pour is jet black with a dark mocha head. Nose is strong bourbon with notes of booze and lighter wood. Heavy malts, notes of brown sugar and caramel, hints of chocolate and a touch of cake. Taste is much sweeter, bourbon isn't as strong and chocolate cake is mixed with berry sugar. Body is heavy and a touch syrupy, carbonation and good with a dry finish.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Thick viscous black. Small khaki head.

Smell - Licorice. Boozy chocolate and coffee roasted malts. A bit of bourbon.

Taste - Acrid smokey malts. Burnt malt. Very bitter. Some booziness. A little chocolatey.

Mouthfeel - Boozy and burnt. Very bitter.

Overall - Not impressed by this. I still haven't had a good bottle or version of Doris.

Black and brown, I'm shocked to say the bba version manages to retain a nicely fluffy, formidable head for a short period.

Sharp aromatic malt characteristics actually hit the nose up front first, with coffee and chocolate and nuttiness pleasantly coming to the fore before the bourbon.

The creaminess of the base brew comes through first on the palate with chocolatey nutty undertones second, while the bourbon seeps in delicately and patiently.

Very few bba beers retain the aroma and flavor profiles, let alone the mouthfeel, of their base brews, but this one managed to do so remarkably well.
