Bottle. Pours a near black color with a somewhat slight tan head. Nose is roasty and filled with bourbon. Taste is actually lighter for the style and has a lot of roasting and bourbon. Interesting...

Dark pour with mocha head. Smells of vanilla with faint scent of bourbon. Sweet and light on the palate. Overall a nice bourbon stout.

Appearance-pours dark brown with small, quickly dissipating head.
Nose- bourbon dominates, sweet malt, hint of roast coffee.
Taste-surprisingly heavy chocolate. Barely any bourbon in taste. Sweet, chocolate malt.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: dark brown, with a tiny brown head that fizzes quickly to nothing, and no lacing to speak of. Aroma: a bit of melted dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans, with a whiff of whiskey. Taste: some boozy notes up front, then a hint of roast, vanilla, and chocolate. Finish: slight whiskey burn, and very mild roasty stout notes fading quickly. Notes: Not impressed at all. The flavors were incredibly light and the palate bordering on watery. I mean, I’ve made home-brews better than this, and I SUCK as a home brewer.

Nitro draft to taster at BBC on 3rd and Main (which is apparently aged in Four Roses Barrels for 90 days and nitroed, as opposed to different barrels for 30 days in bottles and at other locations). Looks good; cola with foamy beige lacing. Smells and tastes solid; a nice balance of malt and bourbon with a slightly thin but creamy finish. Much better than the bottled version.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown nearly black with a small quickly fading tan head. Aroma is roasty and malty, more standard stout than bourbon or barrel. of which there are some faint notes. Flavor, again mostly roast and some cocoa with a note of coffee. Finishes quick with a slight woodiness. Medium body and a way to heavy sharp carbonation. Not a great offering for the style.

Bottle. Pours black with no head. Aroma is slight bourbon with some malt. Flavor is bourbon with a little malt and wood flavor. Not much to this.
