3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Deep black and chocolate milk-thick, with no head to speak of. Heavy alcohol aroma. Smoky chocolate, lots of toast. Bitter espresso. Maple. Smooth oak. The flavor’s more oaty up front. Smooth sweetness: almond, vanilla, touches of brown sugar and toasted coconut. Light butterscotch with an almond finish. Despite the lack of head, the carbonation is at least mild. Noticeable alcohol burn. Sugar-heavy, medium-full body. Incredibly smooth flavor -- smells boozier than it tastes. Great blend, very easy to drink.

Bottle thanks to Derek and Mike!! Huge surprise! Pour is pitch black with a small, short lasting, brown head. Aroma has bourbon, vanilla, oak, chocolate, booze, roasty malts, dark dried fruits. Sweet bourbon. Taste is very elegant sweet, balanced by booze and bourbon/oak, fruity and with a dry bourbon finish. Greasy body, low carb

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown (nearly black) with no head. The aroma is of toasted coconut and spiced dark rum. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and delicate carbonation. Much like the aroma, the flavor offers an intermingling of vanilla, toasted coconut and bourbon booziness. Fairly hot, bourbon and dark chocolate finish. Another world class beer from the fine folks at Goose Island - shared by landhoney!

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.

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!
