Dark brown with tan head. Nose is bourbon and chocolate. Taste is big chocolate, bourbon, oak, a touch nutty, some astringency. Silky stick mouthfeel, somewhat thin for the style.

Mr_Abner (68) - Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours thick and black with a thin beige head. Strong bourbon aroma, oak, coffee; alcohol becomes apparent as it warms. The strong bourbon taste overpowers everything else -- would like to taste more of the base stout. Full bodied, smooth, minimal carbonation, astringent finish.

12oz bottle, I think from budznsudz. nose is booze and chocolate. pour is pitch black with minimal head. Taste is only lightly boozy, slightly thin, but at the same time, very drinkable. seems a bit light overall, though, really. even the beer has light brown highlights. overall decent.

On tap at Uno’s Hamilton. Everything I like about a bourbon barrel stout except just ever so thin on the mouthfeel - and a little sour, a little boring. Put it into context though, a boring bourbon barrel stout is not really that boring, is it.

DocJitsu (1100) - Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours a thick, opaque, very dark brown with a quickly fading mochacino colored head. Oaky vanilla and coconut spills out of the glass into the olfactory. Smooth and viscous. Alcohol warmth is evident. Coconut, vanilla, oak, and rich caramel.

Gription79 (2390) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is big bourbon barrel notes. Coconut, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, and alcohol. The flavor is chocolate, vanilla, caramel. Much bigger body then I would have thought, based off of the aroma. Rich and warming.
