Notes: Bourbon BA 4th Anniversary Chocolate Coconut Almond Stout , 2017 "CocoNaughty" Edition

We loved the first version of this beer that we released in late 2015 but thought that it would be even better with more chocolate, coconut, and almond flavor. We re-brewed a small batch of the base beer in May 2016 and aged it in Willett bourbon barrels until early August 2017. After blending the barrels together we infused the beer with ludicrous amounts of the aforementioned adjuncts. The result is one of the most luscious and decadent beers we have ever released.

Probably one of my favorites from Westbrook. It reminded me of a Ted's Chocolate Haupia pie with a slight bourbon finish. Can't think of much, if anything I'd improve on this one, thus it's damn near perfect in my book. I wish I had more money when it was released, I would of gotten way more.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours very dark with a beige head that leaves a few strands

Smell: Chocolate, coconut and almond tones embraced by Bourbon

Taste: Like the aromatics, the chocolate coconut and almond tones are prominent with the Bourbon enveloping, through the middle; oak and vanilla join in, after the swallow; creating an Almond Joy finish with the Bourbon lingering in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The BA version is so much better than the base beer; the flavors really come together here
