Almost black with a a modest dark tan head that soon subsided to a ring around the edge. Aroma is dark chocolate, brown sugar & coffee. Taste is quit a bit sweet with a hint bitter & a substantial amount of alcohol heat. Flavor is dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, vanilla & bourbon (I doubt those bourbon barrels were empty before the aging process was started). Flavors are intense & pleasing, tastes stronger than 16%. Feel is smooth & thick, almost syrupy. The low amount of carbonation is made up for with a high level of alcohol, nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t really taste like a stout, but it is delicious.

Pours almost black, minimal tan head that quickly fades to a small ring, no lacing but the glass retains a thin oily residue. Aroma has a little bourbon, coffee, roasted malts, cocoa, vanilla and some ash or smoke. Flavors match the aroma with a mildly boozy finish. I thought that this would be "chewier" but the texture is about as most BA stouts. Great flavor and aroma, surprisingly easy to drink considering everything. An awesome brew for [email protected]

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a carbon black, with some fine, wispy foam.

Smell is intensely coffee forward, with hints of chocolate, vanilla, and booze.

Taste is very powerful and boozy, with notes of oak, vanilla, chocolate and coffe trying to burst through.

Mouthfeel is failrly thick ans viscous, well carbonated.

Overall, a huge stout, that is just a bit too boozy for me.
