bottle, thanks to cavie, dark brown with a coffee and dark fruit aroma, flavors of coffee and oaky bourbon, finish is lighter than expected

Nothing like picking up a bottle tick then checking the review to see a c+, this will be yummy! 12oz bottle in August 2010, poured into my Darkness glass...The lightest shade of black with dark brown fringes. A really light tan head rises a full finger then disappears to a thin ring, no lacing...Light and boring aroma that is very malty at first, chocolate syrup mostly. The syrup has really generic qualities that are not appealing at all. I can’t tell this was barrel aged, no typical indicators...The taste is horrendous, light chocolate syrup poured into a glass of water that then was used as an ashtray. The feel is super light, very water like. There are no redeeming qualities to this beer, it should be avoided.

BelgianBeerGal (3241) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Bottle picked up in Nashville over Christmas. Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a nice dark brown head. Very active carbonation. Aroma is sweet malt and a hint of bitter chocolate with vanilla. Decent flavor until the finish where it closes with some disjointed, cold coffee bitterness. Yeah it was okay but the bourbon notes were muted at best.

Decent beer that doesn’t do anything fantastic in particular, but does a few things well. Nice aroma, can detect vanilla and chocolate with hints of bourbon and coffee. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head, little lace left behind. Minimal carbonation, slides across the tongue with ease. Dry, slightly burnt coffee finish.

Bottle at Max and Jess’s place. Pours a hazed brown black with a thin beige tan head. Isopropyl, bourbon, roast coffee, and chocolate. Roast and coffee, big and roasty. Chocolate and roast. Touches of booze and roast.

Bottle shared at Max’s FF winnings tasting. Pours a deep dark chocolate. Aroma has notes of vanilla and oak, but it’s predominantly awesome chocolate ganache. Flavor is surprisingly smoky but not meaty. Slightly oily body with some really nice smoky and creamy features. I like.

Bottle at Max’s tasting. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma with a light sweetness. The flavor has roasted malts, a hint of bourbon sweetness, and caramel. Solid.

12 oz bottle. It doesn’t look that great for a stout. There are carbonation bubbles that stick to the sides of my snifter. The head is fizzier than it should be. It doesn’t look as thick and imposing as it should. The smell is sweet bourbon, not too much oak or stout scent. It has a ton of butterscotch in it too. This is one thin bourbon barrel stout. Dang. It tastes like guiness with some bourbon notes. It isn’t too sweet. The mouthfeel is thin, not good for the style. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-16-2010 04:44:34

Bottle thanks to Robert. Pours black. Off tan head. Nose and taste of chocolate malt, vanilla and barrel. Slightly sweet. Plain. Decent.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is wonderful: bourbon, wood, chocolate, caramel, dark fruits. Flavor is still very good, but it doesn’t live up to the aroma. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. But oh, that aroma.
