3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap. Pours dark with no real head. Smelled dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Very smooth tasting. For a high ABV I did not get an alcohol taste - but did feel it later. Nice balance of chocolate and coffee. Not an overpowering bourbon or whiskey taste to it. I did get the feeling in my head later that night and next day that I get whenever I drink even small amounts of whiskey though. Unsure why as this would not appear to be enough. I did tick it down a notch for that, but for others that never have this affect it will be fine.
Great beer that I am glad the bartender stated I need to try.

Release #55, 12.7 ABV. Pour is jet black, very mildly carbonated with a dark tan head. Aroma is oak, whiskey, coffee, vanilla, coconut, cocoa. Full bodied, taste is much like the aroma, with a slight alcohol burn. Delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours completely black with a one finger brown head. Smells of alcohol, whiskey, fudge, light on coffee, some molasses, and dark chocolate. Taste is a mix of whiskey, chocolate, molasses, and coffee. Finishes warm with a hint of soy in the end. Medium body, silky with noticeable but low carbonation. Nice BA stout, but wanted more from the coffee.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Release #59, bottled 10/09/15, and clocking in at 12.3%. Pours pitch black, nice tan head. Aroma is freshly ground coffee. I feel like Iím walking by 50 different varieties of coffee beans at Whole foods with this aroma. Chocolate is prominent, and some whiskey but itís mild. Iím somewhat congested at the moment, but as it warms, I finally get that whiskey-aged noted. Flavor is way more whiskey-heavy, chocolate is so prominent, that coffee bitterness absolutely pops as well. Very well-done.

Release#55 @ 12.7% ABV Bottle#2658. Aromas is all fresh coffee grounds, no other aromas detected. Rich almost syrupy body with just enough carbonation, nice. Flavor is also all about the coffee grounds, there is some faint chocolate towards the finish with some booze.
