Good head production and retention for the style. Inky black body.

This brew wears its bourbon on its sleeve - or at least, on the nose. Huge notes of bourbon and char, with maple a secondary characteristic. Other tones include brown sugar, caramel, molasses, licorice, and coffee.

Flavor delivers on the nose's promise in spades. Tons of bourbon and maple, dancing back and forth for dominance, all atop a thick roasted malt base. Waves of cocoa and coffee, brown sugar and toffee, all behind bourbon mash, vanilla, maple, and oak. On the second half, char and smoke come through with a salty bacon-like delivery which lasts through the finish.

Thick, hot, full-bodied, sticky, chewy; everything you could want in a 12% ABV stout.

Very light carbonation with an above average body. Slightly oily creamy feel
Aroma is sweet bourbon, some black coffee,roasted malt,and espresso/dark chocolate.
Taste was very identical with the bourbon dominating. It was sweet,sugary but stopped before becoming cloying.
Overall it was packed with bourbon flavor but the high abv was. Very well hidden

Served in a snifter, poured from a 22 ounce bottle courtesy of Jeff at Vintage Estate Wine and Beer in Boardman, OH.

Served at room temp, because we like to taste our beer.

Smells like smokey, molasses-y dried fruit, but not too much like that. The aroma is subtle. Looks like a damn fine cup of coffee. Tastes much better than the maple bourbon biscotti - the sweetness from the base beer in that one fought to a stalemate with the maple. This has some sweetness, but it's not sweet. The roast is the winner here, as it balances well with the maple barrel. Yeah, I mean, there's not a ton of maple-ness here, but good maple syrup isn't going to wallop you in the face with anything, either - if you're using Log Cabin on your pancakes, then maybe take a step up at some point so you can re-calibrate the palate. Anyway, this isn't the best of the BA Evil Twins (Double Barrel Biscotti Cake Break holds the crown), but it's definitely worth a try, especially if someone else paid for it.

This is a great BBA Stout,im judging my review more on the lack of maple integrated into this. Pours pitch black with a dark tan head. Smell is roasted malts and bourbon with wood and chocolate very little e maple. Taste had chocolate,char,molasses and very nice BA taste with notes of vanilla and roasted malts linger,very little maple Thou. Mouth fell was full barrel and above tastes. If you like a full bourbon BA stout you will love this. Its a great stout but the maple was lacking.

22oz bottle thanks to Steve. Next in the Jesus lineup. Black pour with small tan head. Kind of boozy and sweet in the aroma, some of the maple comes through. Taste brings in a few more elements, vanilla, bourbon, and a bit more of the maple. Pretty sweet and boozy

pours out black with a thin dark head. aromas and palate bring fudgey bourbon soaked chocolate, molasses, caramel, vanilla, burnt malts, oak, char, and a burnt maple type note. not a huge amount of maple character but overall very complex and delicious desert stout. mouthfeel is on point and alcohol is well hidden, completely absent when the beer is cold. good stuff!

Pours black with a finger of caramel-motor oil head. Head retention is fair with a ring of khaki lacing lasting for a long time. No lacing left behind. Aroma isn't huge, but it is packed full of notes. Roasted and toasted malts, caramel, molasses, maple syrup, and bourbon all swarm together to form a hearty, dark aroma. Flavor profile is smooth, with notes of roasted and toasted malts opening it up. The malts form a sturdy base for the notes to come, which land as molasses, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, and a bourbon finish. Roasted and toasted malts continue to stick to the tongue long past the bulk of the flavor profile. A little bourbon, hard liquor heats up the palate after a few sips. Mouth feel is thick with a hearty, filling, semi-grainy texture. Overall, a sturdy, strong, but decadent stout. Lots of dessert like notes without ever coming off as sweet. Well crafted through and through.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 22oz bottle.
