Tap at Flying Saucer Emporium, Memphis. Colour is almost black with very small slightly brownish head. Aromas and flavors: Some bourbon, some vineous elements, some berries, chocolate and roasted malts. Not massive, pretty easy BBA but I like drinkability.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hmmm...yeah this is amazing. So lets talk about the aroma. Massive amounts of boozy bourbon, caramel, vanilla and coconut. Sweet chocolate and oh just loads more bourbon. Probably the most bourbon Iíve ever smelled in a stout. Tastes like a glass of chocolate, charred, chicory, vanilla caramel bourbon. Itís so complex but works so flawlessly together. You can pull out each individual note and itís wonderful. I have to be honest, at 7.99 a bottle....I donít think you can honestly compare to this. Itís really hard to wrap my head around because currently people would pay stupid amounts of money for a bb stout that tastes this good and itís way better than most they would pay for. Canít talk this one up enough, itís literally amazing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The good part of 10 years in cold cellaring with 9% abv stated on this bomber, poured to a tulip displaying good clarity to the darkest brown color, with some ruby highlighting, frothy, brownish tan head foam, and foamy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was roasted, cocoa, malt sweetness, dark caramel, toffee. and a touch of vanilla. The taste was as the aroma notes, medium to full bodied, with carbonation that retained some noticeable spritz, complemented the roasted & earthy bitterness, and alcohol that was well incorporated at this point, and expressed some lingering warmth. No tannic or oaky overtones, but a smooth, and slightly silky texture that finished similarly. Impressive longevity for a quality product!
