I know this has been on tap before, but I missed it. Saw the tweet today that they have about 20 cases of 12oz cans. I made the move QUICKLY... picked up one 4-pack.... I will be back tomorrow morning! Good reverse cascade of bubbles with the pour.... Deep dark brown head has nice retention with okay spotty lacing. The brew is absolutely black with no light escaping. The nose is thick chocolate... the whiskey comes out as vanilla and a bit of oak... but chocolate is the big player here by far. Flavor mirrors the nose with a minor nice balance of dark malt and a hint of char... subtle dark fruitiness really rounds it out nicely... possibly something that I associate with black licorice in the distant finish Smooth light carbonation accentuates a little lighter than expected body... but not a game changer. Really pretty damn well done... I doubt cellaring will do any good... this is tasty right out of the gate and needs no time to come together.

On tap at Black Friday. This one burns just by looking at it. I was trying not to like it...but whatís not to like. Black body, singing alcohol aroma, taste unites the alcohol, roast grains and wood notes into an unholy mess of greatness. Sockeye, I bow in your direction.

Can, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out complex bourbon barrels above anything. Flavour is similar, with really complex bourbon notes coming through, medium sweetness, a little vanilla and a touch of cocoa. Really complex and cohesive, with wonderful refinement. Excellent.

Can - Toasted coconut and tons of bittersweet chocolate. Jet black with a small brown head. Bitter, sweet and a long sweet bitter finish. A bit dry. Good can.

Sample at GABF 09/26/2015, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Brownish-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lace. Roast malt, bourbon and coffee in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, chocolate malt and coffee. The finish is oaky with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Solid beer all around.

Dark beer with a thin, foamy brown head that shank to a thin slick. Great nose of subtle whiskey barrel, molasses, licorice, dark chocolate and alcohol. This is a very nice BA Imperial Stout. Molasses and dark chocolate sweetness with some licorice, vanilla, whiskey, oak, dark roasted grains, faint smoke, sweetened coffee and a bit of juicy over ripe fruit. Very nice balance.

This poured a very inky black with a dark tan head. Impressive. Aroma is big Bourbon, fudge, marshmellow and light ash. Flavor was sweet oak, fidgety chocolate, lightly boozy and bitter but very tasty and impressive overall.

Nice beer! Poured from the can to calm my nerves after FSUís overtime win vs Clemson. Nearly black in color, reddish brown head. Sweet up front, medium barrel notes, welcomed roast. Chocolate and molasses. Great stuff.

12 ounce can thanks to Boisebeerguy. Pours a dark brown with a caramel head. Not a thick head. Plenty of lacing. The aroma is amazing! I love the smell of a barrel aged stout. It has that boozy smell with a little coffee sweet molasses smell. Wow. Super mollasses slightly sweet chocolate with a nice liquor taste. Wonderful goodness in a can! Thick and oily with a great ending! Iím going to kiss this beer when I finish it.
