Bottle. Pours black with minimal head. Aroma is mild roastiness, nothing like you would expect from a stout.Taste is just ash and maybe some roasted bitterness. But nothing else. not very good. No bourbon, vanilla, or anything else.

Cask. On tap at OH station. Black pour, creamy tan head. Aroma is cherry and hint of the bourbon. Tastes are pepper, chocolate, wood, molasses. Very little of the bourbon in the finish. OK. 7.0

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2013 Oleoso ed impenetrabile color nero con un soffice cappello di schiuma beige. Aroma dominato dal bourbon con un flebile velo caramellato e vanigliato; gusto dolciastro con note di bourbon, caffè, cacao amaro e un tocco di liquirizia nel finale. Corpo medio-lieve, struttura setosa, effervescenza debole; lievi sentori legnosi nel retrogusto. Particolare invecchiamento dove si sente tanto (forse troppo) bourbon, buona ma non vale il prezzo pagato.

Not too complex, plenty of barrel notes. A little thin on the palate. I seem to remember enjoying a bottle of this a year or 2 ago, but this draft is just OK. Ready to move on to the next beer.

From a bottle.The pour is a dark brown with a minimum brown head.The beer has a roasty,very sweet burobon,chocolate,coffee taste with a thin body which I find to throw this beer off compared to other BBA stouts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber into snifter glass, deep dark brown with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, molasses, oak, chocolate and some vanilla. Taste adds notes of bitter coffee, caramel, slight nuttiness, dark chocolate and more tannic wood. Medium body, low carbonation, dry, astringent, creamy, rich with roasty wood finish. Pretty dry woody stout, overall pretty intense and flavorful for the ABV.

Bottle from Greenville beer exchange ( I think) - pours pitch with a foamy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is bitter ashiness, that reads almost like being burnt. There’s some bitter coffee with a nip or three of bourbon as well. Overall, close, but out of whack some how.

Bottle from Greenville Bottle Exchange. Pours black with an inch of pillow soft khaki foam. A bit of booze on the nose. Tastes a bit like burnt toast. I get a bit of bourbon but its faint. Not good!
