skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
375ml bottle poured into a Funkwerks snifter.
A~ dark as hell, hardly no head and no lacing once so ever!
S~ bourbon up front followed by dark roasted malts, bitter chocolate, and some burnt coffee. finishing up with vanilla, caramel sweetness lingering from the delicious bourbon.
T~ follows the nose perfectly. with dark fruits on the mid palet, figs, dates, etc... also a lot of maple syrup on the finish which adds a nice sweetness to the malts and adds to the vanilla and caramel flavors from the bourbon quite nicely. very rich, and just as complex as M&C#1 if not more so. hardly any booze notes as well, unlike M&C#1.
M~ super thick, maple syrup like for sure! sooo smooth considering the complexity. oh and of course super nice carbonation.
O~ extremely nice BA stout! one of the best from HF, probably not... i still can’t get over how good BA Earl was, definitely my favorite of all time. it definitely could of had to do something with the age. but don’t get me wrong this is still really amazing but kind of more of a Black Note rather then a KBS. if i have to put it that way haha.

>> Pours deep sepia with minimal latte foam, poor retention, speckled lacing. Nose is toasted marshmallow, molasses, black crayon, sweeter chocolate covered strawberry. Taste is silky and decadent with warming soft alcohol, higher sugar making this definitely a dessert beer. There is burnt sugar, s’mores, chocolate cake, buttercream frosting. It is on the sweet side but not cloying. Some sort of raspberry forward red wine/vinous character in the finish perhaps from the Port barrel Damon...shines through in the finish. Barrel character is integrated rather than boozy. Soft all around. One to sip and savor.
