Firkin at Bearded Lady. Pours a very dark brown color. Little light gets through. The head response is pretty big, foamy and tan. The aroma is WOW!! Gorgeous dark coffee notes, roasted notes, coffee grounds, light bakers cocao and wood. Flavor is big coffee notes, dark chocolate, light woody notes and roasted tones on the finish. This is fantastic!

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 On cask again, and this is glorious. Coffee & milk in perfect harmony. Magnificent as it warms. Serve this over ice and put Starbucks out of business in the summer. Easily one of the best stouts I’ve had from Texas.
Virtually unrivaled by its peers, the majority of whom are behind the curve in middle school while FQ Temptress is banging your hot friend in college. It’s THAT superior to the local competition.
Original rating: Espresso and bourbon shine through in the aroma. Hint of chicory at the end. Much improved over the base here. Smooth and milky, yet chicory is missing on the palate. Flavors shine and play nicely together. Viscous! A nice variant, and a helluva BA milk stout. Wish I could drink this regularly.
