Big thanks to DocJ007 for sharing this one with us last night.

A - Pours mostly black with a nice one and a half finger tall tan head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small webs of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of vanilla, oak, cocoa, dark fruits, caramel, toffee, bit of coffee, oak, smokey dark roasted malt and the warm bourbon. A bit rough around the edges but still quite nice.

T - Starts off with a mix of sweetness; mainly the caramel, toffee, vanilla, cocoa and dark fruits; quickly being joined by the smokey dark malt, coffee, oak and the warming bourbon heat. Finish is smokey with some light sweetness, combining with the bourbon booze burn to linger long after the finish.

M - Big body with moderate carbonation. Smooth feel, could use a little more carbonation tho. Much like the other version the 11% is hidden quite well.

O - I enjoyed this one. It has most of the flavors I love in a stout and the bourbon isn’t over the top. It has some rough edges that should round out with a bit more time in the bottle. Not as good as the AB version but still quite good.

22 oz bottle shared by b3shine. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, subtle bourbon character, vanilla, more earthy bitterness and less sweetness than the apple brandy version, still very good, just not as interesting as the other version.

22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine - thanks, Beau! Pours an opaque chocolate brown with a small brown head that leaves spots of lace in the glass. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, molasses, oak, dark fruits, brown sugar, mild roast, a hint of earth - decadent. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, smooth mouthfeel. Man, this is great. Now I need to see if I have what it takes to get the Cakes.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roast coffee, chocolate, wood and bourbon alcohol aroma. Copious body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout smooth brew.
