3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown or black pour, quarter inch Carmel head that reduced to a small cloudy puddle. Really really sweet scent, dark fruits and bourbon. Average carbonation, really frothy mouthfeel, super rich and roasty on finish. Flavor is super smokey/ashy, campfire and meaty, peaty, really rich molasses and dark fruits, currants and bourbony raisins. Good BBA stout but a bit heavy on the ashiness.

It was a little burnt for my taste. I like a smokey bock, but this was different. It had more of a burnt red meat flavor, and didn’t stand up to other bourbon barrel stouts.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque, very dark brown with cola colored glints around the bottom edge of the glass when held to the light. A half-finger, alternating smooth with bubbly, mocha colored head sits atop this beast. IT’s a beauty. Coffee, char smoke, and Crème Brule aromas. Mouthfeel is thick, smooth, somewhat coating, and a little scrubby. Rich flavors of smoky coffee, light plastic, vanilla, and oak. Some bourbon is noted in the background. Awesome stuff!
Addendum: With spicy food, the booziness gets expressed much more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Capones. Black with a brown head that completely fades once it has a chance to settle. Light smoked meat, oak, vanilla, peat, bourbon, roasted malts, some leather, a sharp alcohol burn, and almost some chilli spice; full body, moderate carbonation, some chilli burn going down the gullet, very thick when you swish it, almost feel chunky (not good) but still a nice tasty beer if you like a little spice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black colored pour. Small tan head. Little bit of lacing. Slight bourbon aroma with chocolate and vanilla. Taste is a malty version of the same. Pretty good. Needs more bourbon.
