2017, from bottle into chalice.

Dark black color with minimal foam head upon aggressive pour. The foam that formed dissipated quickly. While cold, this had loads of maple and bourbon noticeable. As it warmed, vanilla and coffee really came out and were in excellent balance with rest of the ingredients. Feel was also good, although not quite as full as I expected. Sticky mouthfeel that lingered for quite some time after drinking.

Excellent BA breakfast stout which went really well paired with doughnuts. Worth the trading price. Just wish it was bigger than 500ml.

Not going to go into huge details on this, but I will say that I am giving this beer high ratings because I actually picked up on all the adjuncts added to this beer. For my palate to pick up notes of cinnamon, maple, vanilla, coffee, and cocoa during the coarse of enjoyment speaks miles to the people at bottle logic.
