A- pours an opaque cola brown with mahogany edges. Thin tan head that quickly thins and clings. Light lacing. S- espresso, bakers chocolate, maple, twigs, anise, chalk, cacao. Grainy malts, booze and oak support. M- some thickness to the medium oily body with a medium bitter palate. Mild to medium bitter palate that goes down with good burn. T- dark chocolate, graham cracker and vanilla up front. Bourbon and oak follow with cacao, coffee, roasted malts and wood on the mid palate. Brings to mind the profile of a barley wine. As it warms some rhubarb appears. Ending is bitter and sharp with an almost tannic quality. Minerals and grass as well as tobacco and vegetal notes come through.

Bottle share. Bottled Jan 28, 2013. Pours dark brown with bleeding edges. Aroma of chocolate, bourbon, wood, vanilla, chocolate. Cripes. Smells so good! Taste is sweet with a bit of chocolate bitterness. Smooth. Dry finish.

Little 6oz bottle, stamped 222. Big thanks to Erik for the top 100 tick. Nose has some very dark European roast with a touch of booze. Taste is a lot if dark fruit, sweet cherries, some booze that to me comes off more fortified wine than bourbon. Palate was a bit thin and rather flat. Otherwise a very tasty little bottle.

Hoprider (423) - DENMARK - APR 26, 2014
Very dark pour with a minimal head. The nose has clear borbon notes and milk chocolate notes. Very inviting. The mouthfeel is thick and oily with pretty much no carbonation. The taste is very ballanced with soft oak, chocolate, spicy/sweet malt and maybe a hint of vanilla. The alcohol is very well hidden here and the whole thing just works really well. Lingering malty sweetness after the last sip. Wish I had more bottles waiting...

bottle shared. Oxidiation is on this one, flat as as well. Not much for bourbon flavors, just a sharp sweetness. Might be too old here.

Great BA stout but its not as good as the other variants that ive had. Heavy cocoa, ash, vanilla, and burnt toast. FInishes bitter with come coffee and chocolate. The bourbon is not very noticeable. Lots of bitter char.

180 ml bottle @ home. 2009 vintage bottled in 2010. Pours a thick oily pitch black fluid with no head at all. Intense aroma with lots of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, sweet syrup. Taste is silky smooth with bourbon, roasted malts, chocolate and caramel. Nice thick mouthfeel. Really good!
