My absolute favorite beer, I wait all year for it to be finished. 2011 was no disappointment. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on some you will be very happy.

Aroma is a nice bourbon, fresh roasted coffee scent. Taste is a chocolatey, coffee, and a slight touch bourbon flavor. This beer is spectacular. Love all the suddle background flavors. Great price for a bourbon barrel aged stout.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Holy amazing beer batman. This came from noncaloric...what a friggin beer. Purs a nice dark brown color with hints of dakr red. A very thin espresso like head. Aroma well damn this one has it all. Coffee, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, light roasted malt, and even some dark fruit notes. The flavor, and wow what a flavor it is, is full of smooth and delicious coffee, great undertones of bourbon, oak, vanilla and chocolate. My god how do I get a case of this stuff. OMG. Wow.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2010 An all time favorite coffee stout. Hint of vanilla, big coffe and subtle chocolate All rounded out with a sweet bourbon undertone. One of those bourbon stouts that gets it just right by not going overkill on the bourbon. pours jet black and viscous. My fav from Central Waters.

Bottle. Can’t believe this beer is finally available again! Mix of milk chocolate and coffee in the nose. Faint bourbon notes as well. Fully opaque body with light brown head. Vanilla notes and moderate bourbon stylings separate this from most of the bourbon aged imp stouts on the market. Bleeping outstanding.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2010 Bottle, courtesy someone at the Tampa tasting. Dark reddish brown color, hazy white head and some lacing. Big chocolate nose, caramel, bourbon and some coffee roast. Flavor is huge chocolate and roast with caramel and dark cocoa. Smooth, full-bodied, balanced and yummy.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 On tap at Devils Den for Beer Week. Did not even know this was on tap beforehand, turned out to be my favorite of the event. Pours s pitch black with creamy beige head and medium lacing. Aromas are overwhelmingly raw cookie dough, bourbon, chocolate, cinnamon, smoked peaty woods. Taste is chocolate chip cookie with roasted malts, bourbon whiskey, brown suagr, caramel, sour peruvian coffee and rich dark cocoa beans. Finishes so smooth with a milkshake creaminess and balanced profile all around. One of the best stouts I have tried.

A wonderful stout. There is a great balance between the coffee and bourbon. I will buy this again.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 Dark pour. Kind of looks like Coke. Bourbony coffee smell. You can tell just by the aroma this is a Central Waters beer. Must be the barrels. Tastes great. Great chocolaty toasty flavors. Very sweet. Nice touch of bourbon. A little tangy on the tip of tongue. The tangyness isn’t to pronounced. Have had 4 bottles so far and all have been fine. Will probably drink the remaining 4 soon because I hear the tangy taste will eventually sour the beer. I like this beer a lot. Would hate to see it retired, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see on the future status of it. ***Had the new version on tap at Madison Craft Beer Week. Absolutely phenomenal. A+++***
