I would have a hard time finding much of a fault with this beer. They took a classic and made it better. Nose and taste is full of bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee and chocolate. Tastes like a cinnamon roll sitting in some bourboned up coffee. It is nice and thick with a brown head. Just a fantastic beer.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Near black with a thick half inch medium brown head.

Nose: rich chocolate and vanilla up front. Cinnamon comes and goes, bourbon barrel starts to come through as it warms. Very good balance.

Taste: coffee comes out much more here versus the nose. Very strong vanilla and bourbon character as well along with some milk chocolate. Cinnamon is very subtle, adding a warming character on the finish.

Feel: full-bodied and rich. Medium-low carbonation.

One of my favorite BA Speedway variants, hands down. I hear this one is hitting distro too, so thats great news for other beer nerds because this one is a treat. Warm, sweet, creamy and ever so perfectly spiced with cinnamon, this stout drinks like a boozy, liquid coffee cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. I could drink this beauty all day.
