Vintage 2016.

Pours opaque very near black. A half-inch tan head forms and quickly disappears completely leaving no lace. The smell is of milk chocolate, roasted malt, leather, pipe tobacco and subtle booze. The taste is dominated by chocolate with notes of oak, vanilla, roasted malt and lactose sweetness. Full texture with low carbonation. World class.

2014 vintage. Most certainly one of the infected bottles from this year.

The nose on this stout is stellar, but I prefer a density more in-line with BCBS. A little heavier chew and BBT would be absolutely perfect.

Vanilla, dark chocolate, light roast, lactose, oak, bourbon, dark fruit, light bitterness

Overall a nice example but I'm sure the adjuncts are necessary to help the flavor profile
