A drier, different type of BA Stout from CCB. The heavier presence of Rye makes for a unique flavor combination. A littler thinner than most BA CCB stouts, this still has excellent legs and mouthfeel.

If you like something a bit different, you'll love this beer.

Put this on a tape & stick in a tape deck, if you know what that is: thank to moose3285 for being my El Cat proxy, & I forbid you to ever move. 750ML bottle with perhaps the coolest label ever: darkest grey lettering on a black label backed by a monstrous stout. The label is virtually invisible to the naked eye. Split with my wife (a mistake, perhaps?).

The pour is blacker than 100 feet below Nym Lake (or so I’ve heard) with lively carbonation that retreats quickly. Very bourbon barrel RC Cola on the nose, heavily creamed coffee, & a dose of liquid marshmallow. I could lick this off a stick.

Endless Nameless is like waking up on Sunday Lake with a light rain pattering on the tent’s fly, with no vehicle but a canoe & nothing to do for days. That is…good. Shot of bourbon, four melted Three Musketeers bars, heavy marshmallow, roasted bitterness, Kahlua, the tears of a jet-black unicorn. Slick & heavy & dense like every CCB stout, I could down this in liter-sized boots.

Wow. This is The Two Towers of beers, so close to perfect as to make the distinction indistinguishable. Otherworldly good.

Bottle from Catador membership. Pours pitch black with a two finger, creamy and fluffy light brown head. Aroma is huge barrel char, lots of bourbon, chocolate, coconut, rye, dark fruits. Flavor is lots of chocolate and some dark fruits, an interestingly light rye spicey note, huge char from the barrels, nicely integrate bourbon notes. Rich, though not as insanely thick as some CCB stouts, with low carbonation. Really, really nice. This is what the Eclipse series of beers SHOULD be if they had some body. Very similar fruity and big char notes on the flavor, but this blows away the Eclipse variants.

Big thick with minimal head. Smelled a bit like Dark Lord, my buddy who isn't too into beer said it smelled like soy sauce. Definitely some good roast and bourbon, but my buddy was right about that soy sauce. Good, but not top tier like some choice CCB offerings.

Another very rich, balanced and delicious CCB barrel aged ale. Not as viscous, heavy, or sweet as there other stouts. Tons of gooey bourbon caramel, burnt marshmallows, bitter dark chocolate. On the palate it's closer to medium bodied, but slick and carries the flavors well. The finish is dry with lingering bitter dark chocolate and barrel.

Enjoyed this beer the day after Cigar City's Hunahpu's Day 2016 at the brewery in Tampa, FL. This is another El Catador club beer I'm thankful to have tried before opening my bottle. It was absolutely fantastic. This is a very sweet imperial stout with a lot of added character from the bourbon barrels.

On tap at Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, FL.

This one pours a very dark and ominous black, with a small head, and no lacing.

Smells like earthy roasted malt, tobacco, leather, chocolate, roasty coffee, lots of oak, and subtle bourbon.

This is insanely well balanced for the ABV. This is because the bourbon is subtle and well layered through the beer, with more oak and earthy barrel wood to show that's it's barrel aged. There's leather and tobacco, dark Belgian chocolate, and coffees.

This is thick and chewy, with a normal level or carbonation for the style.

This is up there with the best BA stouts that I've had.
