12oz undated bottle (from last fall) poured into a snifter at fridge temp 9.8% ABV 60 IBU 46 SRM. The beer pours dense black with an inch of mocha colored head. The head recedes to a paper thin cap and ring and leaves no lacing. The aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla and chocolate in that order. The taste is rich roasted malt, coffee, chocolate etc. turning to an oaky vanilla and bourbon finish. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish despite the richness of the beer. No boozey alcohol in the taste or aroma. Overall, excellent.

Pours black with a very thin head that goes. Aroma-chocolate, tootsie roll, vanilla, whiskey. Taste- fudge, chocolate, vanilla, slight bitterness. Mouthfeel-somewhat thin, but still a little creamy and slick. Overall-nice taste and nice job on this one. Compares well with any BA Stout.

Pours dark and somewhat thin, with a ring of tiny bubbles sticking to the glass. Smells of floral hops and cocoa powder, along with roasted grains. Some raisin adds into the mix on the palate, which ends abruptly in a short, dry finish.

Really great vanilla tones on this. Very smooth. Consistent and well rounded. Barrel-aging at its best.
