Stark black with burnt brown edges and a bubbly, dark tan head that dies to the faintest ring.

Aroma is a fantastic. Nutty almond & cashew paste, oak, nougat, caramel, brownie batter, bourbon spiked coffee, and heavily umami-esque roasted malt. There are also hints of black licorice and smokey raisin as it warms.

On the tongue this has a nice roasty tang, a slightly hot middle, and a dry, almost chalky chewy finish. Flavor is bringing loads of dark roast coffee, baker's cocoa, toffee, dry woody bourbon, and dates. Body is medium-thin, with a bubbly fizz.

I've not had a BA stout be dry in a long time, if ever. It's not that standout velvety, slick but sticky viscous body that most typical, renowned BA stouts bring. So, this is definitely a unique take on the style, but I definitely don't hate it. Glad to have such a positive experience for my first Hangar 24 brew.

December 2015 vintage
