A - Pours pitch black with a thin tan head.

S - Aroma is vanilla, coconut and light bourbon.

T - The taste is dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, coconut, oak and a nice kick of bourbon in the finish.

M - Full bodied with low carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft finish.

O - This is a very well done BBA stout. The flavors are perfectly balanced with the alcohol adding a nice warmth. Definetly worth seeking out.

Damn...world class sipper here....

Incredibly complex for a big stout.... Coconut.... Vanilla.... Lots of barrel... Surprising punch of evergreen hops... Super dark roasted malts...

13% ABV... Is it hidden? Not really... Is that ok? As far as I'm concerned, yes... Kinda know what to expect with that. Its not "hot" but it is an attention getter...

As it warms, everything branches out even further into this monster of epic proportions...everything is amplified in a magnificent manner..

Wish I had another bottle of this to lay down for a few years to revisit and see how it does...

As is? Buy this SOB if you run across it anywhere...

This one pours a very dark black, with a small head and not much lacing.

This smells kind of ashy, and super oaky, with leathery bourbon, heavy roast, light vanilla, and dark chocolate.

This has to be one of the oakiest barrel-aged stouts I've ever had- it's bitter, ashy, and burly, with a big smoke character, burnt spruce, chocolate, tobacco and vanilla. This is decidedly European and Nietzschean in stout execution. There's a little bit of warming booze, but not as much as I would've expected.

This is thick and chewy, with a good level of carbonation for the style.

This is definitely one of the better beers they make.
