650 mL bottle. Black body. Tons of bourbon in the nose. Vanilla. A bit of milk chocolate. Taste also has tons of bourbon. Oak. More bourbon. Covers up everything in this beer. A bit of coffee. Lots of oak and bourbon. Doesn't taste as light as the regular, just because of the quantity of bourbon. Extremely boozy. Covers up the rough attributes of the base beer.

Poured into a snifter glass from a 22oz bottle.

Pours a delicious oily viscous liquid that is almost pitch black with a nice rich and dense tan head that is about half an inch tall.

Aroma is marshmallow-ey goodness. Notes of sweet vanilla spice and some good fudgy chocolate. Great notes of barrel. Molasses and vanilla spice notes with some nice chocolatey goodness. There is some slight barrel char and nice bready oat notes with some good espresso coffee on the back end.

Flavor starts off sweet and slightly hot but in a good way. Notes of burnt caramel sweetness and barrel are present lending a sugary/maple sweetness. Nice fudgy notes are present throughout the middle and lend a nice richness and fullness to the barrel notes. A delicious BA stout with a great rich full mouthfeel and great complexity of flavors.
