On tap. Love this beer! Dark coffee color with a rich smoky aroma. Very full flavor with elements of the bourbon, coffee, chocolate, malt. Maybe a bit sweeter than it could be but definitely a great beer.

Looks great. Opaque. Not a ton in the aroma, but this is great immediately. Chewy bit some hops and definite stickiness. Yet a nice slightly chocolate flavor. Really quite tasty. A bit thin in the finish but excellent nonetheless. One of the best beers of my trip. Great with the dessert we had.

Bottle. Pour comes in the ink brown/black with some frothy off white head that fades quickly. Nose is an unreal aroma of bittersweet chocolate cake. Flavors are the same bittersweet chocolate, but in a balanced manner with some deeply roasted hop and cream finish. Given that description, the beer is surprisingly light. Very sweet, but loved it.

Understated bourbon character on the tongue, slightly more pronounced on the nose. Nice obsidion color

Nice. Black pour with mocha head. Smells of chocolate, coffee and a little bourbon. Tastes the same. Chocolate flavor if a bitter chocolate.

cmiller54hr (45) - Manitou, Kentucky, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Pours jet black with minimal head. Definite smell of bourbon. Chocolate and toffee with hint of bourbon on the taste. Overall, a very good stout

jstraw (1930) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Black with fair (but barrel-aged) brown head / Rich nose of chocolate, bourbon, coconut, and roast coffee /Full body, inky and sweet, fat with low carbonation, malty with modest hopping / Sweet, intense flavors of semisweet chocolate, dark roast coffee, coconut, bourbon, and caramel / Would prefer more hopping, this being a sweet stout, but I nitpick. (Odd, this bottle quite good but previous tasting from a mail order bottle was very thin and rated only 3.1.)

Aroma... a perfect bourbon. Apperance... horrible thin head. Taste nice sweet bourbon... best out there. however first sip after another beer seemed a bit week and watery. Easy on palate and very enjoyable. Nice beer. I liked it the first time... good still.
