2011 Vintage. Poured from a Silver Waxed 220z bottle on the day it was released. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, some bourbon and vanilla. Taste is sweet, chocolate, vanilla, some coffee and bourbon. This is pretty awesome stuff. No infection this year.

Dark brown pour with a creamy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted malt, vanilla and ripe fruit. Flavor has nice bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, black cherries. Simply amazing!

Big thanks to ucusty for breaking this one out at Foothills several months back. Big pour, heavy carb from lively bottle conditioning. Nose is really nice and smooth, a mellow barrel presence but an assured one. Prickly and sticky mouthfeel, but not overly slick. Lots of chocolate and cherry in the taste, and a smooth finish.

Bottle shared at a BA/RB tasting... Poured jet black with a tan head. Very hot with alcohol. Cocoa nibs, lots of roast. Whiskey and sweet alcohol tones towards the finish.

Thanks to the generous soul I got this from ( you know who you are) cause I forgot. J/K!!! BA Older Vis x BA Serpents stout? Turd. Nice barrel character. Chocolate, sour cherries, oaky tannins, bourbon, and light coffee. Drinking well now, but if you have a bottle go ahead and pop it

Bottle shared at Foothills at the BA Sexual Chocolate release. Canít remember who shared this. Stfun? Ucusty? OSCF? I dunno. It was fun to see such a rare bottle and actually be at the table to taste it. Dark brown with a small tan head. Nose is slightly tart, green hops, roasted malt, coffee. Flavor definitely has a sour twang (which I guess is unintended by all the posts i saw regarding this beer) some roast, light cocoa. I donít understand the appeal of this beer. Would be nice to have in a different setting and with someone with knowledge of this brews origins.

Shared by ucusty. Pours an inky black with a profuse fizzy tan head. Nose is vinous and mildly acidic with some barrel and vanilla, cherry skins, and some tannin. Flavor is tart and vinous, fruity and tannic, woody with some vanilla. Palate has a mild viscosity, mildly tart and crisp.

Bomber courtesy of wavers1 Ė thanks Baker! Pours crude oil black with a one finger mocha head. The nose is nice bourbon, oaky vanilla, dark chocolate. The taste is ashy cocoa, wood, sweet bourbon and coffee. Creamy mouthfeel. Very good!
