One of the best BBA stouts I have ever had. Poured black and smelled like bourbon. Flavor was rich with a bourbon finish

Was lucky to share in a '12 bottle.

Poured a pitch Dar k even in a 5oz tulip & didn't allow any light through.

Bourbon jumps up & out. Followed by chocolate, slight vanilla & burnt sugar.

Some much flavor depth, but get dark chocolate, bourbon, and sugary sweetness.

Fantastic beer overall. The epitome of what a barrel aged stout should be.
