Non BA is too sweet. BA definitely cuts down on the dessert stout aspect. Well balanced. My all time favorite dessert stout.

2021 batch.

This one pours a very dark black color, with a small head, and no lacing.

This smells very strongly of coconut, with loads of milk and dark chocolate, very slight roast, light bourbon, and lots of creamy vanilla.

This is definitely sweet, but honestly, not as sweet as I expected. This really does meet the hype that it garners - it's exactly what you want out of high quality pastry. The coconut is done so well, it's so bright and vibrant and just plain tasty. There's a little bit of barrel, it helps anchor the beer slightly. The vanilla is also done very well, and it's all just layered on top of a very tasty and creamy base beer.

This is very creamy and rich, with no real booziness to it at all. It's very, very drinkable.

I almost didn't want this one to be good - I don't always like Angry Chair and this is such a hyped beer. Fortunately (unfortunately?) for me, it's honestly awesome. This is the best Angry Chair beer that I've ever had.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a chocolate head. Huge chocolate cake bouquet. Well shit, that is a chocolate treat. Don’t get me wrong, this bad boy is Uber sweet but it’s exactly as advertised. It’s literally a liquid version of chocolate cake. As it warms up the bourbon, oak, vanilla start to show up. Really good body and mouthfeel.

It delivered, it’s a cake in a beer. Very tasty, worth trying if you have a chance. Definitely a “good one”

Had this stout at Angry Chair on 3/20/21 so I’m guessing it’s a 2021 bottle. A very nice guy sitting at the table next to me offered a pour from a bottle he was sharing with a friend to my wife. Needless to say, I drank her pour. Jet black color with a little bit of foam. Smells like chocolate with some light bourbon notes. Taste is the best chocolate I’ve ever tasted in a stout. Rich, sweet chocolate balanced perfectly with a slight bourbon taste. Mouthfeel was also perfect just coating the tongue. This beer blew me away! I’ve had the non BA Version years ago and it was very good but this is in a league of its own. The best pastry stout I’ve ever had. The first perfect score I’ve ever given on beer advocate.

2021 vintage. Good viscosity; not as thick as a lot of Angry Chair I’ve had. Getting awesome Samoa vibes. Strong coconut and chocolate, with a really well-balanced barrel. Awesome.

The look right out of the bottle looks amazing. Has a great mouth feel that is like drinking brownie batter. Like many AC stouts it is sweet but the barrel helps keep the sweetness down some.
