Pours a thick, dark brown with almost no head. Aroma is heavy on bourbon, malt, chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Taste follows aroma, and lives up to some unreal expectations on my part. Great job, as always, by CW.

Pouring at GTMW 2012 Dark black pour small brown head. Smells "nummy" was the first thing I said when I sniffed this glass. Huge bourbon barrel nose mixed with lots of chocolate roasty notes and a nice hint of lactose. THis made me think of a perfect monster milk stout on bourbon barrels. Huge thick chewy delicious palate. Sweet flavor, syrups milk chocolate, butter, vanilla,. Delicious clean finish left me drooling after a swallow. This was one of the best beers at fest!

Pours a pitch black and tastes like you are licking the inside of a barrel. Absolutely superb.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thick black pour with tan head, aroma brings notes of big dark cocoa, dark coffee, chocolate, hints of nice vanilla, oak, bourbon, slight coconut, nice. Taste is a mix of nice coconut, vanilla, bourbon, hints of oak, nice chocolate, touch of roast, coffee, finishing fairly bitter, dry, nice oak and sweetness. Totally worth the hype.

Bottle shared by MatSciGuy! Dark inky black pour, little ring of carbonation and a nice rich mellow chocolate and light bourbon aroma. Flavor was just as good as the aroma, mellow bourbon, dark chocolate, coffee and slightly thick an bitter on the finish (but well balanced). Really nice beer, I wouldn’t mind trying to get a bottle of this for myself.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 On tap. Basically a bourbon county clone. It beats it in aroma though. Just a solid beer, had it on tap. Big bourbon notes but tempered by that awesome stout base. 1515 is even better.
