Frank (2879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Very deep brown and almost completely opaque, this is a nice looking beer w/ a decent head of off-white bubbles. Nose is roasty w/ a lightly vinous character. This is medium bodied w/ slightly overly vigorous carbonation. Consequently, the flavor comes off as a little thin though itís nice and roasty w/ just a touch of barrel character.

had this on draft- nice bourbon flavor - not playing with the big dogs in the bourbon stout arena but a good tasting brew.

DiarmaidBHK (3396) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2011
12 oz bottle bought from a total wine in nova. Pours dark like a stout should. Very little if any head to speak off. Aroma had notes of bourbon and chocolate. Nice mouthfeel almost like pudding until I realized I couldnít taste much of anything. What a thin palate. I canít believe I have three more of these to drink.

llcooldave (1082) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2010
12 oz bottle courtesy of Dandman629. Pours very black with a slight creamy looking cola head. Amazing bold aroma of black cherry and some dark chocolate notes as well. There is a definite alcohol aroma in the background. The flavor, compared to the aroma, is a bit of a let down. Very muted\restrained flavor of cocoa and espresso. Overall, itís easy drinking and not offensive. If the flavor could be brought up to match the amazing aroma, then this would definitely be a beer in the high 90ís

freekyp (1485) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2010
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. Oneís 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.

FrankLe (14) - New York, USA - DEC 17, 2010
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.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2010
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 (10666) - 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.
