Outstanding. Tastes of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, roast. Very dark, and was also very sweet. Loved this one. On tap at most places in stevens point it seemed like.

12oz bottle pours a thick black color with a small amount of beige head. Lots of bourbon flavor overpowering a little. There's some harsh flavors in this that linger after. Maybe this would smooth out a little with cellaring.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2015 Bottle [2012 vintage] @ home, October 28th 2015. Opaque very dark brown to black color, small quite quickly diminishing lightly fizzy brown head. Aroma is malts, dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, wood, dark malts. Taste malts, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, dark malts, more chocolate, more vanilla, more oak, more sweetish bourbon influences and some bitterness in the finish. Perfectly suitable medium body and carbonation. Absolutely delicious again. Love this!
Bottle [2010 vintage] shared with Dutchdrebus @ his birthday tasting [October 22nd 2015]. Short re-rate, smell and taste malts, bourbon, sweetish. I’m not describing it accurately enough at all, but this beer is lovely. Absolutely delicious. Didn’t adjust the score [9-3-9-4-17]
Bottle [2011 vintage] @ weekly tasting shared with Joes. Very dark brown to black color, medium sized white to off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, lots of bourbon, lightly vanilla and sweetish. Taste malts, a hint of hops, loads of bourbon again though not really that strong or dominantly as is to be expected I guess. Still, this beer offers plenty of flavours sort of speak. The flavor being so good still might even suggest it was too strong when originally released. Happy to have tasted this though. Superb beer! Original rating: 9-3-9-4-17=4.2

2014 bottle, very pleasant (sort of light) and not very hot, was expecting more flavor though for a bba stout. Have three left from the 4 pack, will enjoy soon, not a beer to cellar, I don’t see it improving with age.

12oz bottle from Thomashall. Very dark brown with a mocha head that mostly fades. Strong bourbon, vanilla, oak, some butter, roasted and semi-burnt malt, bitter sweet chocolate, caramel, full body, mild+ carbonation, initially sweet and boozy, becomes slightly bitter, thick malty, buttery and bourbon taste, very bourbon forward overall so if that is your thing you will like this a lot.
