Catching up on old ratings.
Brown/black. Nice aroma and taste...A wonderful blend of my three favorite liquids – bourbon, coffee, and beer. No sickly burn from the bourbon taste. No bitterness from the coffee taste. Strong oak and vanilla. Nice boost aftertaste. Fantastic.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, over a black (SRM 40) body.....nose is light bourbon, chocolate, coffee, cocoa, vanilla....taste is chocolate, heavier coffee, light bourbon, hints of vanilla, hints of sweet dried fruits.....mouth feel medium, sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds light acid tingle. This is a nicely balanced, pleasant tasting but slightly light Imperial Stout. I would prefer a heavier and more complex malt backbone, with appropriate increase in the hops. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Last year’s batch thrown up against kbs. Pours black with tan head. Smooth vanilla and slight bourbon flavor. Taste is syrupy and almost sour vanilla. Body is there but is a bit to oily. Sourness kind of takes away from the beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with small khaki head. Holy damn this smells amazing. Bourbon, chocolate, some coffee, vanilla, oak. Sexy. Coffee comes through more strongly in the taste, blending nicely with bourbon, vanilla and chocolate. Some well-placed oxidation there as well. The finish just lasts and lasts, with an exceptionally nice aftertaste, almost better than the initial taste. Full body, viscous, velvety texture, average carbonation. Overall: impressive.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an impressive black with tan head. This is serious black. No light escapes. Aromas are bourbon oak, vanilla, sweet malt, and just a touch of coffee. Taste is sweet, chocolate and oak up front, giving way to some very nice coffee flavor. This is quality coffee too. Long lasting flavor and full mouthfeel. Just a touch of hops in the finish to balance things out and let you know you’re ready for another sip.

Wonderful chocolatey bourbon aromas. A very alcoholic taste until it fades to a smooth chocolatey finish.
