Bottle. Pouts black with brown minimal head. Served at 57 degrees. Head disappears quickly. Smells like bourbon. Tastes like a smooth creamy bourbon drink. I think this is awesome. I could drink this almost every weekend day. Full body creamy body and texture.

Everything you heard about this beer is true, but I just prefer the breakfast stout bc the Bourbon isnt my thing. But go for it! demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2012 Going in to this, I didn’t think it could possibly live up to the hype, but it does. Tastes just like it sounds. Breakfast stout that sat in a barrel for a year. Amazing. hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours black with a thin brown head. The aroma is boozy, bourbon, oak, coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. The taste is much like the nose, sweet, malty, boozy, and bitter on the finish. Overall, one of the of the best beers out there regardless of style. It’s damn hard to get, so buy your max if you see it. rdixon77 (2761) - Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2012
UPDATED: APR 24, 2016 Wow, closet to sipping a smooth whiskey that I imagine a beer can get. Nice deep burnt brownish-black color. The taste while definitely having the boozy, whiskey feel is very smooth. After the bourbon heat, you can get vanilla, coffee, chocolate, more bourbon, wood. Oily, thick mouthfeel...that, again, is still somehow nice and smooth. Great for some porch sipping’ while watching the sunrise.

Received thanks to a trade with jrob21. Well worth the wait!
Pours black with a burnt tan, quickly dissipating head. Smell is over the top coffee/espresso, huge roast notes, liquorice, caramel, toffee, vanilla. Taste is coffee, nuts, bit of chocolate, vanilla, and some booze. Mouthfeel is surprisingly light, but coats the mouth, right amount of carbonation. Delicious and amazing, well balanced, great great beer. cmdmzmjm (2) - - MAR 28, 2012 does not count
Absolutely amazing stout. It's the best I have had. Almost 12% abv and you won't even notice it. Chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and a ton of yumminess. Get this beer if you can.

Poured into a snifter from a 12 ounce bottle bottled 2-17-2012.dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
A: Pitch black body with almost no head, only a dark tan ring.
S: Heavy oak and bourbon, slight vanilla. Reminds me a bit of fresh tobacco.
T: Very mellow and well balanced. Dark chocolate, oak, bourbon, and vanilla, in no particular order. Very intense but mellow, bittersweet.
M: Thick and syrupy, light carbonation.
O: Expensive but this lives up to the hype, one of the best BA stouts I’ve ever had. I firmly believe though that no one has tasted this unless they’ve paired it with maple bacon cheddar, I had Yancey’s Fancey cheese.
2008 bottle. Pours thick black and has a small brown head that recedes quickly. Nose is strong vanilla, rich alcohol notes, nuts, wood, coffee and chocolate. Minor smoke notes too. Flavor is perfectly balanced bitter and sweet. Mouthfeel is fizzy yet creamy. Super long aftertaste.
