Many thanks to tacosandbeer for this bottle!

A - Dark brown pour with a thin burnt toffee colored lacing ring and clings to the sides of the glass like cough syrup oozing down. Pretty awesome.

S - Oak, char, Bourbon/Whiskey, dark fruit.

T - Dark fruit, sweet dark malt, light smoke, oak tannin, and lingering char.

M - Big, thick, and silky smooth while lip smacking sticky.

O - This beer is impressive which is an understatement. Recommended!!

Medianoche 09/22/2017 - really nice fudge shop nose, reminiscent of Maman. Sweeter malty and barrel notes and more length than depth. Really good one here.

I'm not sure where an 87 BA Score comes from exactly but it seems criminally low for this beer. Had the single barrel on draft first week of May 2017. Killer BA Stout. Big barrel presence without being too hot. All the typical notes you'd expect in a good stout: chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, coffee, nuts. However, the mouthfeel is what separates the good stouts from the great and this one has the thick and creamy mouthfeel that the world class BA stouts have.

Single barrel version on draft at the brewery. Absolutly amazing, meets expectations in every way. Huge bourbon aroma on the nose that blends so well as it warms. Big body, super smooth with lots of creamy chocolate and dark roast on the pallet. Overall an excellent BA stout

Black with burnt red edges and a thick mocha souffle on top that recedes to a thin ring.

Smell is ultra roast, black peppery oak, nuts, maple, and cedar. Next level stuff here.

Taste is really rich and roasty, with chocolate, bitter cocoa and coffee, hot barrel, roasted walnut and almond.

Dry but full and frothy. A perfect stout body, but hot.

2017 batch on tap at weldwerks.

Pitch black in the glass with a dark brown head that sticks around. Nose is wood and bourbon forward, followed by big dark chocolate on the taste. Mouthfeel is huge. A touch of heat comes through that melds really nicely with the big chocolate and vanilla notes. Super fudgey.

Overall, really excellent. Love this. Not quite as complex as maybe Bourbon County or Parabola, but great at what it is.
