4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Just came into our state of Ariz. 2012 22oz. Bottle. Poured black with a dimished tan head. Low carbonation. Up front Bourbon nose followed by some wood like aromas. The Bourbon dominates with distinct whiskey flavors, accompanied with roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolates, and caramels. Nice balanced sweetness with the alcohol tipping the scales. Delicious and smooth. A little thin.

This is a surprisingly fantastic beer. Really rich and heavy in cocoa, vanilla, oak, coffee, and just enough sweetness. Quite sweet in a good way and really great.

One of the more complex stouts, notes of roasted coffee, honey, and burbon. Has some burn for a stout. If this wasn’t $30 a pint and didn’t smell like piss it would be near the top of my list.

Bottle split with Mark and Janine after work. Pours cola black with a thin tan head. Aroma of vanilla, cola, berries, honey. Taste is sweet cocoa, ripe raspberries, oak, and subtle whiskey notes. Not overbearing or cloying. Very smooth, very drinkable, nice burn in the chest. Good. Very good.

Bottle shared @ tasting. Thnx to timfoolery for sending me this! Pours a pitch black beer with a brownish hue around the rims, Small beige head on top. Aroma has nice bourbon characters, smooth caramel and vanilla. Some syrupy things going on. Even some ripe red fruits going on in the background. Flavor is very sweet, well balanced with some touches of vanilla going on again. Cloying mouthfeel. Amazingly well balanced beer.
