3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: April 20, 2014... GLASSWARE: Corsendonk tulip... OCCASION: Easter Sunday--another humbling, dry Lenten offering completed... APPEARANCE: intimidating black body with a one-finger, fuzzy brown head; consistent, well-tempered lacing... AROMA: thick peat, smoke and sweet chocolate scents; some licorice and candy too...PALATE: intense, impactful punch at the teeth; mellow at the mouth and warming at the throat--full-bodied...TASTE: sweet, sharp vanilla and milk collide with a mild whiskey breath that invigorates, if not inspires--a bit hot, but not much of a deterrent... OVERALL: the whiskey is subdued but the ABV is significant enough to attract attention; otherwise, a complicated combination that leaves a sweet, warm aftertaste....

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy brown with beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is roast, dark chocolate, and coffee. Light roast, coffee, and dark chocolate with sweet finish. Decent.

Bottle received in trade - jet black with a mocha head and mocha coffee aroma. Very smooth easy drinking brew. I didn’t really detect anything in the bourbon department.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 One of the more easy drinking Ba stouts despite a lingering tartness. The palate consists of cocoa, fresh cherries, molasses, ash, and some tanic booziness from the aging. Very nice but doesnt really stand out among a wide array of Ba stouts.

Chocolate, coffee, maybe even a hint of cherry in the good nose. Flavor matches but wish it was just a bit thicker body

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours shiny dark brown with an uplifting tan head of fine bubbles. The head fades to a fair coating. Aroma is roasted malt and tangy cocoa coffee. Taste brings a nice rich chocolate flavor to the roasted malt. Clear bourbon whiskey flavors that last strongly in the aftertaste. Notes of vanilla and a bit of coffee bitterness as well. Quite outstanding flavor but just a bit boozy. Substantial carbonation and body is a bit thin. I enjoyed this beer very much.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a very deep brown color. It flows like it's very thick; almost reminds me of a thin strap molasses. Very good taste. It seems like the time in the barrel took a lot of the bitter notes out and replaced it with a hint of smokiness. Very good and enjoyable, and I'm not even a porter fan!
