Bouteille. Robe noire. Nez de caf frais, de grain torrfi et de bois avec une pointe dalcool. Bouche crmeuse o sharmonise les notes du nez et les saveurs douces du caramel et de la vanille. Finale sche , terreuse et marque par le fut de bourbon. Une lgre acidit vient clore la dgustation. Une stout barrel age qui sexprime pleinement mais sans brutalit.

Bottle at home. My lords. Black with a red hint through the light. Dark brown head that soon cleared. Aroma of smoke and burnt metal, coffee beans. Hints of coffee, beef, dark caramel malts. Semi carbonated, lively at first but then settled. Georgous.

TimE (5715) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2015
Pitch black color. Thin dark brown head. I love the unique Buffalo Trace bourbon in the nose, i wish more breweries used these barrels. Intense molasses, rich velvety dark chocolate, licorice and charcoal notes. Slightly salty. Very low carbonation. In fact too low to the point of being next to flat. Really loses points on the mouth feel. Slightly sweet. Mouth is much more linear than the nose with lots of bourbon, dark chocolate and lactose notes. Finishes mildly sweet with bourbon and dark chocolate with lactose notes, but a bit lifeless. So much potential.

jc1762 (1309) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours the thinnest of all the BA stouts, this one pours out like a coke. Fizzy head, pitch back. The first impression on the nose was akin to that of a lambic or a sour. On the follow up, it shows hints of the dark malts and coffee beans underneath. The palate showed surprisingly the same. Some tartness, medium bodied, some of the roast malts appear on the finish. A little bit of the adzuki/red-bean sweetness on the back end also.
