Drought. Dark brown with light chocolate colored spongy head, sharp whisky aroma, coffee-bourbon taste, bitterish long finish with a bit too heavy bourbon aftertaste. Nice but a wee bit too heavy on whisky.

Bottle, thanks to Alan, 03/13/2014. Pours dark brown, nearly black, light tan head fades relatively quickly to a few wisps on the surface, small ring of lacing left over. Aroma of chocolate, medium roast, touch of dark fruit melding with sweet bourbon notes, fairly prominent coconut component. Taste is bitter dark roast and chocolate, some coffee, bit ashy, offset by fruity overtones, with vanilla cola and bourbon. Medium body, on the thin side for the style. Decent.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, oak, vanilla, chocolate and light coffee, and a little dough. Flavor a very nice balance of everything. Smooth, thicker texture. A good BA imperial stout.

Bottle. Thanks Derek. Flatter black pour. Bourbony, chocolate aroma. Similar flavor, medium bourbon notes. Medium mouthfeel. Solid stout

Great tasting almost a lighter tasting/mouth feel to BCBS. Wonderful chocolate and coconut aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 On tap @ craft 47. Bourbon, bourbon and more bourbon. Aroma and taste is full of bourbon. Nice balance between the beer and bourbon. IMO right there with BCBS. One complaint could have used a bit more carbonation.

Wow, best bourbon stout of the season. Poured from bottle to tulip. Good head, hints of carmel and bourbon. Not overpowering, but an adventure. I will age a few other bottles, but a great beer. Cheers!

Glad I waited to pop this with jrob21. Pours nearly black with small tan head. Scent is bourbon chocolate. Flavor is sweet with earthy hop back bite. Boozy, thick, and delicious. Bottle - Received in Trade

12oz bottle pours a dark chocolate brown with a tan head and little lacing. Roasty, slightly alcoholic, licorice aroma. Very smooth and delicious.
