Notes / Commercial Description:
A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar and by all means aged in barrels and blended into a this very unique and rare tasting version standing in front of you.

Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a thick dark brown to motor oil black color with a finger's worth of tan foamy head that slid off at a mild pace. Some stringy lace concaved at the sides.
The aroma leaned to the sweeter side - thick with pure chocolate fudge, milk chocolate cake, sugar and some whiskey at the end.
The flavor was sweet all of the way through pulling in that "cake-like" taste to give off a bigger and fuller aftertaste that somewhat reminded me of whiskey soaked fudge.
The mouthfeel was full bodied with a pure sipping quality about it because the ABV is not only felt but somewhat noticeable in it's "heat." Carbonation felt fine. Finish was thick and sweet.
Overall, diabetes in a bottle. A 22 oz. bottle can be tough to take down, but I did over the course of a 4 hour period. Not for the faint of heart, I suggest to share with a buddy.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter.

Pours an ink black body with very little head and retention.

Aromas are heavy on the whiskey and milk chocolate, very strong and potent Classic BA stout aromas. A little booze.

On the tongue is a rich balance of vanilla, coffee, dark fruits, milk chocolate, finishing with bittersweet chocolate and cocoa, roasty. Medium heavy body with very low carbonation.

Very enjoyable, easy to drink and flavorful.

super super sweet, more sweet decadent barrel notes (big vanilla, toffee, caramel, chocolate) come through than actually bourbon character. molasses and some mellow dark fruits and spice note, hint of oak and mellow bourbon. not much boozyness at all for the abv. medium-full mouthfeel, some chewy texture.
