(first off many thanks ti sliffy for the hookup.)i have been waiting to try this brew for ages now,i guess today is the day!this b.a. stout poured a thick motor oil black with a nice,but small dark brown head.as the head sat it left nice dark webbing on the glass.i then held the snifter up to my nose and could not believe what i recieved.the first wave of aroma was,you guessed it,coffee!the second wave was a lovely blend of bourbon and oak,not overpowering,but just right.the third was a mix of dark and milk chcoolate.then the fourth was a blend of oatmeal,roasted malts,and black liquorice.ok now after smelling it for ten minutes,ill take the fisrt sip.WOW!the numerous levels of taste hit my palate so fast it was hard to even catch them all.after a few more sips i picked up on what my brain was telling me was absolute bliss,and what made it that way.coffee,chocolate covered raspberries,bourbon,oak,vanilla,milk chocolate,alcohol,black liquorice,and roasted malts all smacked me across the face every time i took a sip.is this beer prefect?i would say YES!its right up at the top with speedway stout to me and my only complaint that i have is that i only have another bottle.
SECOND BOTTLE ON 6-6-06 BY WAY OF NEWCASTLE01.would i still give this a perfect rating?HELL YEAH!i still cant get over how good this beer is.and i still have one more bottle.
