I've been holding this brew for about 6 months and finally decided to give it a go.
Poured into my trusty Stone tulip glass.
Look: Black with persistent tan head & lacing.
Smell: Faint cocoa that begins to increase along with nutty essences as it warms.
Taste: Wow! Right from the refrigerator into my glass, the first sip is milk chocolate. As the beer warms, the milk chocolate is joined by cocoa, bourbon, vanilla and the almonds. Fantastic!
Feel: Medium carbonation and mouthfeel.
Overall: A great stout that tastes like a boozy chocolate/almond milkshake. Great job Modern Times!

Bottle thanks to Rick. Dark black, flat pour. Aroma is nutty, sweet,candy bar. Smooth and slick. Some maple flavors, pancakes. Nice with a bit of a sting.

this review at 35 degrees Fahrenheit
look is black with basically no head.
smell is bourbon for sure with slight vanilla
taste is cocoa and vanilla bourbon. i get a slight amaretto taste at the finish.
feel is really good. good carbonation with a nice consistency. not too sludgy and not too thin
overall, an amazing beer. but only issue is that it is not worth the $30 price tag.

Poured into a snifter. Dark brown color with a thick tan head. Nice retention for a BA beer. Rich and complex aromas of vanilla, almonds, milk chocolate, and caramel. The taste was much like the aroma: a malty beginning with escalating chocolate notes followed by a strong vanilla and almond finish. The almond really hung out on the finish in a nice way. Lighter bodied that was in line with the hybrid base beer. Not boozy for an 11% beer. Outstanding.
