4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black. 1 finger coffee color head. Nose is of very little sweetness and some licorice, mint leaves and dark cocoa bourbon is obviously present as well. Body is heavy but a bit oily. Vanilla and dark chocolate with oatmeal and more licorice. This is such a nice beer but the spiciness is the only turnoff.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Claybourne on Black Friday.Before the tasting event. Great aromas of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, light nuts. The flavor is nothing but spectacular. Flavor shows a strong bourbon presence with a mellow burn after the swallow. I swear I get a mild nutty hint, but I kind of a nutjob so.... Just a wonderful fresh BBA stout!

November 29, 2013 - on tap at Goose for the Black Friday event. Dark brown pour with some head. Aroma and taste of bourbon, chocolate and oak. This was just a tad hot, so some age would really make this great.

Sampled at FoBAB2013. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of Bourbon, chocolate, and vanilla. Some leather and dough notes. Flavor is quite heavy on the bourbon, some other chocolate and roast notes, mild oatmeal sweetness. Full bodied, thick, with smooth rich carbonation. Pretty nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at FoBAB this year. Pours black with a thin khaki colored film. The aroma had dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla oak, with some dark fruit and creamy oatmeal character. The flavor was too heavy on the bourbon side of things for my taste. I thought the body was too thin to carry off the bourbon flavors. Vanilla, oak, some chocolate were there with the mouth feel drying out toward the finish somewhat. I was definitely looking forward to this, but would have to call this a mild disappointment.
