Bottle at SP 2018 Anni.
Pours pitch black. Nose is very subtle cinnamon, chocolate, some bourbon and wood notes. Taste is somewhat muted cinnamon, chocolate, bourbon, oak, getting mild vanilla on the back end. Cinnamon kicks up a bit when this warms. Overall, I would guess this one has fallen off a bit since its initial release. Hate to knock a beer for that, but at least at the time of drinking, flavors seem muted, particularly the cinnamon.

Overall an extremely solid BA Stout by Side Project! Nice and thick with some solid cinnamon, chocolate and barrel notes! Very thick and viscous and black as night! This is my second Derivation (also had 1) and I am excited to try more if possible!

Served on tap at the Jackie O's Appervation release. This is one of the best BA stouts I've tried, period. The cinnamon was barely noticable to me, but the cocoa and vanilla elevated this to a FO B1 level for me. Worth the long drive to the release just to get this little surprise opportunity.

Pours a motor oil viscous black color. Aroma is lots of chocolate fudge with a hint of booze and cinnamon. Flavor is strait chocolate fudge with a balance cinnamon vanilla warm boozy Finish. Coats the mouth, I'd prefer just a hair thinner but still really good. Overall one of the best beers I've drank.

Had on draft and bottle. This is the best Derivation I've had to date and the only one that modestly approaches the nauseating cost of entry. Preferred draft to bottle, which was a tad hot.
