Pouring dark brown, almost opaque, with a slight beige head and no lacing, the nose conveys deep vanilla and whiskey notes alongside cocoa powder and a bit of dark cherries. Medium bodied, this beer starts sweet, ends sweet, and finishes with a bitter black coffee fade. Bourbon is overpowering, and a little more body would have gone a long way.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2011 Multiple pours from 12oz bottles - First impressions were most favorable: Beautifully dark accompainied by laser thin, off-white head. One’s nose will pick up the enticing aromas of bourbon and wood. Everything going well, until we hit the thin zone. Thin on flavor and thin on the palate. Come on guys, you had me going, but this viscosity is not consistent with a stout and the flavor needs to be kicked up a notch. Than being said, I still throughly enjoyed if I just imaged it being a black ale. This is no stout, but still something I enjoyed.

Pours very dark brown almost black with thick tan foam from the bottle. Smells of roasted malt, bourbon and vanilla. Whoa, there is alot of carbonation in this brew. The carbonation bite is almost offensive. Subtle taste of bourbon and toasty chocolate notes sneak through. Why so much carbonation? Maybe this bottle is bad.

Black pour with a small, tan head. The aroma is slightly alcoholic with mild notes of chocolate, roast, oats, smoky bourbon and a vegetal overtone. The flavor is spoiled fruit, bourbon, alcohol, chocolate and day old coffee. The body is oily, medium-thin with moderate carbonation and some alcohol burn.

Tmoney99 (10414) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Draft. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that was that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Solid roasted coffee, wood and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted chocolate flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good and my expectations where met.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Solid black, creamy tan head fades slowly. Aroma of caramel, some fungus and bourbon. Taste is nice, lots of chocolaty malt and light bourbon. Medium body, slick texture. Not as much bourbon coming through as I thought there would be.

deyholla (6490) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours black with a gray brown head that dissipated rapidly to the edges. Aroma strong barrel notes with bourbon and wood coming through with a dark grain backing. Flavor is quite thin with strong bourbon and wood but can’t get over the thinness.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a pure black color with a medium beige head. A sweet heavily roasted nose, some slight sour dark fruits. The flavor is pretty much a simple stout; some ash, roasted malts, very light vanilla from the bourbon. Earthy charcoal in the finish. Enjoyable.

From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a small amount of head. Strong sweet toasted malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown almost black color with a dark tan head that settles down to a thin head that collars around the glass. The aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, and slight bourbon. Medium mouthfeel. Roasty, coffee, dark chocolate, with a slight bourbon note but not really overly strong. Not bad, the body isn’t as heavy as I would like for a beer like this. The bourbon is pretty minimal as well. Pretty easy drinking though. For a stout it is good but as a barrel aged stout it is lackluster.
