I like stouts and i love Woodford Reserve. Mix the two and you have a great beer. Pours out a black color with a nice dark brown head. aroma was full or borboun, vanilla, malt and some sweetness to it. flavor at first is just bourbon but works its way into a nice choco vanilla mix with a nice amount of roasted malt.

Poured into a tulip, enjoyed next to the campfire. Pours insane black with a nice tan head, very small carbonation bubbles. Aroma is of bourbon upfront with dark toasty notes. Little bit of fruitiness as well. Taste is well balanced, dark toasted malts bourbon is not overbearing. Dark fruits like raisins. Overall a killer beer. Malty chocolately , bourboney.

2013 bottling. Black ops is a black brown opaque beer with a thick head of larger mocha bubbles. Nose is strong with Oak, vanilla, and very dark chocolate. Also, alcohol, bourbon and sweet caramel. Taste is woody dry and creamy. middle way there is oak and some rich bitter chocolate. Finishes just a bit warming, bitter and creamy. body is silky and slightly lively. A very impressive beer.

Bottle. Fresh. Alcohol smell overwhelms everything. Dark malts and alcohol up front with unsweetened chocolate. This will kick ass in a few years.

Pours dark black with a a khaki colored head, it smells of bourbon, vanilla notes as well as coffee and chocolate. The taste leads with a mouthfull of bourbon followed by chocolate and then goes to a bit of coffee, the body is a bit thinner than I expected. I think this beer is overhyped, it is a good stout but not worth the search

Pours a deep dark brown/black color with light tan head. Boozy, grainy, roasty and chocolate aroma. Big boozy and sweet flavor, barrel like character with some oak notes, grainy. Pretty good stout, a little hot and grainy but I like to make drink time.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown, almost black, mocha lacing. Aroma is sweet but mild, bourbon, baker’s chocolate, some vanilla, caramel, and hints of coffee. Very little sweetness in the taste and rounds out with a slight tart twang. Fairly smooth but thinner body than expected. Little carbonation and the finish is abrupt.

Glass from 25 oz bottle at American taproom The stout poured a deep black and no head. The aroma was mild due to the beer’s temperature. At the beginning it was too cold. The aroma was a mild blend of chocolate and bourbon. What a wonderful experience. This is creamy tasting stout with bourbon, chocolate and a hint of coffee. The medium body had soft carbonation. The finish was smooth with lingering bourbon on the tongue.

Bottle shared at the Foothills Sexual Chocolate pre-release party. Massive dark chocolate, marshmallow cream, oak, and toast notes. Great oak presence for a woody spice with luscious dark chocolate and espresso notes. Lingers forever. Awesome!
