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.
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. Sager20 (1) - - SEP 15, 2017 does not count

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. pkomar (517) - Poznan, POLAND - JUL 4, 2017
Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and a bit of cocoa. Tongue is full of bourbon, wood and chocolate with vanilla appearing here and there and coming on its own in the aftertaste. Pretty good. Weakest side of this beer is its palate - too much carbonation, not enough body and boozy mouthfeel. At the end of the day its quite tasty, but leaving it in a cellar for a year or 2 wouldnt do it harm. rleao (12) - - JUN 15, 2017
Pours black. Medium body. Whisky aroma is noticeable in the after taste. Vanilla comes all well. Balanced but a little sweet tough aleksander9 (1839) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2017
-late tap from untappd- Bourbon, vanilla and roast. Slick finish. Well done. Hopper8 (210) - Holland, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2017
This is a very good beer. Black pour with a thicker tan head. There is a distinct vanilla and bourbon aroma. Chocolately with fig and barley present. Overall enjoyable and sippable.
