This was one of my first BA stouts and at the time thought was fantastic, but now that I've sampled many others... it's still good, but like others better. Has a sweet more of a creamer taste compared to others that are more chocolate and coffee flavors.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

2013 edition

A: poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a finger of dense tan head that fades to a small collar around the edge of the glass
S: smells of whiskey barrel, chocolate and roasted malts
T: Taste is vanilla and caramel from the whiskey barrel with a little coffee and chocolate. Faint roasted malt flavor as well. Swallow is roasted malt, chocolate, a little oxidation and some more barrel.
M: Medium in the mouthfeel with soft carbonation and a dry finish
O: Very approachable and smooth. Flavors play well together but the mouthfeel doesn't really do it for me. Definitely one to try but I'm happy I don't have an entire four pack.
