Notes: 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.

2015 bomber into a tulip
About as pretty a beer as I’ve ever seen. Pitch black with a 1-finger khaki head leaving lovely lacing.

Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon. On the palate- more roast and much heat followed by a long oaky finish. Huge body. Thick and creamy. Great old school big BBA stout.

240th beer on the BA Top 250. Surprisingly hard to track down.

I tried this alongside my previous favorite beer - the Evil Twin Aún Más A Jesús. This was clearly better. Unfortunately, I tasted close to 20 other top rated beers that day, and I didn't take any notes for a thorough review. But I know my scoring is accurate, as this and the Aún Más A Jesús were the first two beers I tasted that night. To me, this is the best of the best.

2016 vintage; drank 2/24/17 @ the Yarchives.

Motor oil black appearance.

Minimal tan head; no lace.

Marshmallow, milk chocolate, cognac & mild oak notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Whiskey & fudge flavors up front; marshmallow & oak notes on the finish.

Bold flavors here, but it was a hint too boozy for me to love. Close but not quite great.

2016 vintage poured from a 22 oz bomber moderately, resulting in a three-quarter inch tan head over a very dark brown body with some lacing. Wonderful nose of chocolate foremost with a bit of booze from the bourbon barrels as well. Taste mirrors nose with a chocolate flavor that won't quit. Not too boozy at all, but the bourbon is definitely there. Very nice mouthfeel, and overall, what a treat. Cheers!
After warming for half an hour or more flavors of caramel, toffee, and bitter chocolate come forward. Wow, so very nice and complex!
