Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured black hue with an average creamy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Aroma was a heavy toasted sweet malt, strong coffee and bourbon aroma. Medium to heavy body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex toasted malt, vanilla and bourbon flavor and a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout brew.

Bottle from Tooch4321...thanks Adam! - Pours black with a thin ring of tan head. Nose is buttery toffee, coffee grounds, and dry dark roast malt. Taste is coffee grounds, vanilla, some barrel sweetness, dark roast, and a decent amount of nuttiness. Thin and not much carbonation. Surprised that the coffee is pretty much hidden, which is a lot of what I like about the base beer.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of kbudd19. Pours dark brown to black with a thin tan head. The aroma is roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate, smooth bourbon, vanilla, caramel and wood. The flavor is much of the same with roasted malts, black coffee, espresso, bourbon is seamlessly integrated into the base beer, vanilla, wood, sweet chocolate, dark fruits, and the slightest bit of ash. This is smooth drinking from start to finish. This was a treat and well worth rating 3900.

Bottle to snifter (sharer by alexsdad06). Looks good; a dull, dark cola with beige lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, oak, bourbon, and coffee roast. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Opens up as it warms too. Great beer!

wolffish (236) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
Excellent produit très dense et savoureux mais un peu trop boisé selon moi; moins de temps en fût pourrait régler ça... Je ne suis pas un buveur de café alors cela m’empêche de noter plus favorablement.

rxeight (1511) - Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2013
2010 bottle, huge thanks to Dany. Thick black pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of vanilla heavy bourbon. Taste is insanely smooth bourbon, oak, subtitle coffee hits on the back end. Crazy smooth, possibly the smoothest bourbon stout I have ever tasted. Don’t know if that is the beer or the age. Slowly fading lingering bourbon and coffee. This is a very good beer one step down from bourbon county coffee as far as bourbon coffee beers go.

341 ml bottle shared by jsprime. A fantastic bourbon coffee stout experience. The regular peche has never been a favourite of mine but this barrel aged version is just spectacular. This is everything it’s hyped up to be. Amazing barrel aged impy

Lowenbrau (2146) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 20, 2013
341ml bottle. Courtesy of Glouglouburp. Nice coffee, vanilla, toffee, liquor aromas, very well integrated. Pours dark with some tan head, some lacing. Medium body, silky and creamy texture, soft carbonation. Taste is a nice combination of coffee, mild bitter, some roasty notes, vanilla, caramel, liquorice, nuts, hints of wood, all of them in a complex smooth palate. Very well balanced and really enjoyable.

Sarlacc83 (942) - Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle from Graham. This was a big time want, so thanks very much! A: Black as Satan’s heart with a light cappuccino head. This invites into the darkness. N: Coffee, peppercorns, chocolate, some caramel and vanilla. Big bourbon nose. T: Big oak taste and a powerhouse espresso. There’s some sweetness here, but this is more coffeehouse than confectioner. M: Medium-heavy body. Sticky. Alcohol is available but not dominant. O: This is fantastic if not a huge improvement over the original. If you like espresso, however, this is your beer.

Bottle thanks to Luke. Number 5,000! Quite an effort. DDC was one of the first awesome breweries I visited, so quite fitting to celebrate 5,000 with this. Here’s to another 5,000. Pours a dark almost totally black color with a medium bubbly brown head. The aroma is pure coffee, green pepper. The flavor is hot, oily at times, vanilla and sweet bourbon, oak, more huge coffee, light roast. Dry mostly. A bit of baker’s chocolate. Damn nice.
