Appearane - The beer was deep black with mocha bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass.

Aroma - The booze jumps out in the aroma with notes of vanilla and oak in the background.

Taste- The initial impression is boozy. The booze is a little sticky and hot in the aftertaste. The chocolate notes that were detectable in the beginning fade.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel in this stout is near perfect. It coats the tongue and lingers nicely.

Overall - Though a little pricey, this is an easily accessible yet solid version of the style.

A poor representation of BA stout. While not bad or abrasive like some of the Arcadia beers, it makes you regret getting it everytime. Just too hot and unbalanced to be enjoyable.
