4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours pitch black with tan head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, char, vanilla, and espresso. Heavy mouthfeel, yet thinner for most BA stouts I’ve had. Still, it has a velvety texture. Flavor is booze, vanilla bean, espresso, char, chocolate, and finishes with a touch of bourbon that lingers a touch. Solid.
bottle. black with small head. very malty and roasty. lightly sweet with chocolate, dark fruit. moderate bourbon, vanilla, oak. very solid. beerluva (51) - Monroe, Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2017
Pours opaque black with a nice lasting tan head. Aromas of licorice and even some banana bread. Roasted malty sweetness on the tongue which lingers. bourbon influence is there but not boozy. Very tasty! Erzengel (9616) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
Woody Bourbon nose. The beer starts fresh and woody. Intense woody, a bit too much woody bourbon, not too round. A bit sweetish with not too much depth - the wood takes a bit of the original aroma away. Very sad. Beerhunter111 (22958) - P´Castle, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle shared with Erzengel! A black beer with a mid-sized most good lasting tan head. Aroma of sweet dark malt, sweet wood, bourbon. Taste of sweet bourbon malt, oak, liquorice, too sweet. Chalumeaux (1758) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 24, 2017
Poured from bottle black pour with a creamy cocoa head. Aromas of roasted malt chocolate and notes of bourbon. Taste is slightly sour dark fruit chocolate alcohol. Might be infected. Shame.

Bottle from AJ's Beer Warehouse. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, and alcohol. Nada514 (3) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 5, 2017 does not count
This was simply excellent. Bottle, probably less than a year old. Everything one could want from a ba stout, roast flavors mixed with barrel notes and flavor lingers throughout the finish.

It's a stout that's wet and cold in a glass. 9oz pour at king's table. I don't know what else to type here

12 oz foil dressed bottle, sent over by prufrockstar. Huge thanks for this one my friend! You supplied quite the beer for my celebratory evening, and for that, I owe you! What an incredible beer this is. Listed at 10.9% Pours a jet black, with a thin, but lasting tan foam head. A sweet chocolate heavy aroma, some pretty strong whiskey impressions. Flavor remains on the chocolate side, and has much more whiskey flavor, than overall booziness. A warming finish, but still without being boozy. Thick body, chocolate, wood, and soft vanilla notes. An amazing imperial to say the least. Loved it.
