Pours a medium-dark chocolate brown. Forms an incomplete tan colored crown. It smells of huge dark fruit. Taste is about the same and mouthfeel is warm and dry.

5 oz snifter at the Brewery

L: Pitch black with a small, dark brown head. Head left a good amount of lacing for how thin it was.
S: Chocolate and oak.
T: Milk chocolate, caramel, the wood, and then just a little bit of the bourbon. Not a lot, to be honest, and I'd like to compare it to the regular Hunter side by side.
F: Medium body and more carbonation than I expected. A tad milky.
O: I have a sneaking suspicion I'd like the non-BA (or vanilla) Hunter a tad better. This was a nice BA Stout - nothing over the top, which is OK since the base beer apparently has plenty of ABV.
