Poured from bottle into chalice. Deep black color with really nice airy foamy tan head. lots of roasted malt aromas and hints of chocolate. Similar flavor...roasted malt and a lot of chocolate flavor with a hint of vanilla. Only a slight note of bourbon, but that may be the vanilla I taste. I think the best quality of this brew is how smooth it is. Its silky, creamy, and so easy to drink. Really a nice stout...although walking the line of imperial, its nice to get such a good quality semi-low abv American Stout. Well worth a try.

Bottle @ home. Dark brown pour, thin head. Aroma is bourbon chocolate, light smoke and cherry fruit. Light body for a bourbon stout. Fruit and whiskey on the front. Coffee and light toasted malt. Pleasant and not overly heavy.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep brown color with a thin, brief tan head. Aroma is of vanilla and chocolate with a touch of bourbon in the background. Taste is a little sweet like chocolate. A little lighter in body than I thought, but very smooth. The finish is sweet chocolate and a some smokiness comes through.

Bottle. Pours black with huge tan head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet with mild flavors of chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Surprisingly, not picking up much bourbon in this one. Good stout overall.

Beautiful dark brown color with nice tall and creamy tan head, the first aroma I felt was the bourbon, then came the coffee and caramel aromas. Creamy texture. In mouth, you immediately feel the chocolate and the roast. A lingering bourbon flavor comes in after a while. Sweet with some bitter notes of dark chocolate. Well-balanced and very drinkable. This was a very pleasant beer.

Bottle. Pours perfectly dark, a beautiful head of foam with reddish, kind of caffe latte notes. Very good appearance. Aroma is not intense but very enjoyable and fresh with coffee and toffee notes. Extremely well-balanced and smooth taste build of fresh coffee, creamy vanilla, brown sugar and indeed, a bourbon feeling! A sweet tone is well countered with a bittereness. Leaves a very pleasant sweet aftertaste, sort of coffee-style. This beer is extremely drinkable, I actually could start my day with a glass of this one!

Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks Tom L. black with tan head. Chocolate milk sweetness with some caramel and sugar in the nose, sweet, creamy and a little chocolatey taste. Soft, almost no carbonation, full-bodied. Good.

Thanks to Mike for saving me a taste! Pours very dark brown/black with a rich, tan head that falls to a ring. The smell is bourbon, vanilla, roasted malt, molasses. The taste is coffee, brown sugar, bourbon, molasses ending dry. The body is medium with fine carbonation.
