merc7186 (1754) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2013
The beer poured decent with a nice dark brown, almost black, color with a creamy brown head that lingers on but very little lacing. The beer has an obvious bourbon scent with a follow up of mild chocolate and roasted malts. The taste is decent with nice blend of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts that lingers and fades. The mouthfeel is mediocre as the beer is over carbonated and every sip is too much carbonation. Overall, an average stout and a below average borubon stout. Back to the drawing board on this beer.

bubblehouse (232) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 16, 2013
One of the better BBC beers out there. Bourbon taste is not overpowering and is balanced with with a hint of cofee.

Aroma of molasses, oak, and chocolate. Pours deep brown with a tan head. Taste is nutty oak, roast chocolate, molasses, and slight malt. Thin mouthfeel with sweetness. Meh.

Did not like the head. ...too much like dish detergent appearance and consistency. Real carbonation feel as it hits the tongue, sweet and creamy.

Poured from a cold bottle. Bottle was a gusher. Dark brown color, huge tan head. Smells of malts. Taste like burnt malt with infused sweet bourbon.

ContemplateBeer (1438) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 29, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 Aroma: (7- noteworthy quality) Dark chocolate, some smoke/ astringent roast character, a hint of bourbon. Appearance: (3- average) Opaque black with a very slightly bubbly mocha head. Flavor: (8- very high quality) Matches the nose; roast comes off a bit more smokey. The bourbon is a component of the flavor and not the whole show, allowing a bit more malt character to come through than your average BBA stout. Palate: (4- high quality) Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Canít believe I hadnít rated this yet! I liked this much more than I remember; itís a more nuanced take on the style, but I think itís one of BBCís consistently better products.
