This was my last beer last night on my first visit to Haymarket, a place I had been meaning to visit for a while.

The 10oz serving was the right size , but I know from everything I observed that these folks know better it was served ice cold.

Pitch black with trace of head that settled quickly. Woulda loved seeing what this looked like poured at 50 degrees. Somewhat muted nose, except for the bourbon.
Very pleasant feel on the mouth , and throat taking small sips.

As it approached room temperature the wood, candy, malt and whiskey came to life. A desert beer and a very good one.

Nothing super complex, but a very nice BA stout. Lots of vanilla, especially in the finish. Impressive!
