It's a very smooth bourbon stout, clean and a little thick. There's sweet cocoa and vanilla and a little roast. It's a tasty stout but at 10%, it isn't as bold as the best in this style.

There is definitely a fair amount of smokiness to this beer; it is not overwhelming or immediately perceptible as such, but the caramel and vanilla flavors from the bourbon-barrel aging are somewhat overshadowed by the bitterness from the smoke that makes for a relatively dry finish.

16oz twist top aluminum bottle poured into a snifter glass, no bottle date

A- pours a pitch black color with a small fizzy khaki colored head that reduces and disappears completely, leaving nothing behind

S- dark chocolate nut fudge aroma up front with lots of caramel sweetness, followed by some dark fruit. Strong bourbon presence adds some earthy oak, vanilla & barrel juice

T- dark chocolate with lightly smoky malt up front, complemented by notes of coffee, fig, and some earthy notes. The bourbon comes through strong in the mid-palate, giving notes of toasted wood & vanilla. Big wave of creamy sweet caramel pops through on the finish and continues through the linger

M- medium body with moderate-low carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel than finishes a bit thin, with some warming alcohol on the linger

O- solid bourbon-forward RIS that is certainly suited for sipping. The only downfall is that the mouthfeel was a bit thin for the strong alcohol and flavors

A-Black in the glass, but clear around the edges.

S-Dark chocolate, some coffee, mild bourbon, dark fruits.

T-Chocolate and dark fruits, oak, slight bourbon, mild coffee.

M-Lighter for the style, some carbonation.

O-A good BA stout but there are just so many that are better.

Black, a bit thinner pouring, more cola like than stouty, nice tan head that sticks around. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, more chocolate, bourbon / vanilla. Not overly boozy. Some brown sugar and hint of molasses in the back. Pleasantly thick but could be either creamier or more viscous. Very solid.
