Bomber from HWC. Pours a dark brown color with a medium brown head. A sweet bog boozy whiskey nose. The flavor is dominated by sweet vanilla, bourbon, some heat, a bit thin at times. A light flavor of sour mash. Very flavorful despite being a bit light. Good.

WOW! A delicious stout and a great surprise! Tastes like a barrel aged impy without the alcohol content. Aroma is vanilla, bourbon and roasted malt. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger off near tan head. Taste was big, full and delicious. Strong chocolate and vanilla flavors weave in and out of a smooth bourbon flavor. As it warmed, there was more bourbon and chocolate flavors and ended with a quick woody finish. Even in the beginning of summer, I plan to pick up another bottle of this great beer. Mild carbonation.

Thanks to Sammy. Aroma of roasted malt and meat with dark fruit notes. Pours an opaque blackish brown with a khaki ring and minimal lacing. The taste is amazing! Roasted malts, figs, vanilla, bourbon, and a hint of citrus. Medium to medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Smooth full mouthfeel. Overall, this is an excellent beer! Robust, yet smooth.

22 oz. bomber poured into 2 snifters and shared. Sweet aroma of vanilla, some coffee and of course, bourbon notes. Tasty and smooth on the palate. Expected some harshness, none to be found. Really, really smooth with a well balanced bourbon flavor. Nothing harsh about this one. Would seek out more!

22oz bottle, shared with my dad. Pours black, light brown foam. Huge aromas of vanilla. Some roast, lingering essence of bourbon oak. Tastes of chocolate. Flavors of oak, lots if vanilla, sweet mocha. Sweet finish, creamy texture. Very great beer offering. Delicious!

On tap at ACBF 6/1/2013
Solid black color smallish tan head. Aromas of bourbon in spades with hints of roasty coffee underneath. Thin coffee like liquid assaulted with too much bourbon. Thin body with a watery mouthfeel. This doesn’t have enough body to stand up to the thinning effects of the overuse of bourbon here.

Split a 22oz bottle with some friends. Poured a dark black color with a touch of dark brown on the edges of the glass, with a small off-white head. Aroma was dark caramel notes, vanilla, bourbon character. Aroma was sweet dark malts, chocolate character, bourbon notes throughout this. Very smooth and with a lower alcohol content compared to other similar styled beers, this was refreshing and pretty easy to drink.

Bourbon and malt aroma with a slight amount of hops. The taste is super smooth with no heat whatsoever. Such an easy drinker for what it is.

National Club, best beer I had today. A big rich bourbon aroma. The bourbon taste was substantive in the taste, well integrated with the stout and chocolate. RIch tasting. Carbonation above average.
