Draft at Grill Next Door. Pours nearly black with a scant beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, molasses, bourbon, oak. Flavor is dark chocolate, licorice, lots of oak and bourbon. This is very good, but would benefit from some cellaring.

Draught. This is a big bad beast of a beer with so much depth and nuance it is hard to describe. Seek it out and consume.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of toasted, dark chocolate and molasses, moderate resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with notes of bourbon, licorice, tar and alcohol. Head is small, creamy, brown with slipper lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is black. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is full, syrupy, with a soft carbonation and a lightly to moderately alcoholic finish. Super dark and rich in aromas and flavors, and all in perfect balance. World class Imperial Stout.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours black with dark brown head. Amazing aroma of chocolate, coffee, bourbon. Taste definitely does not disappoint. Flavors of chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, spices, caramel, toffee, coffee. Syrup and clingy mouthfeel. Moderately sweet with mild to moderate bitterness. You do get a little alcohol burn from the high ABV. Overall an amazing imperial stout. Definitely one of the best I've ever had.

Fantastic beer. Drank it side by side with BCBS and could hardly tell a difference. Black pour from 22oz bottle at home. Full whiskey, vanilla, coconut, chocolate and cocoa flavor. Outstanding beer

this one tastes identical to bourbon county brand stout. so much we did a side by side and there is almost no difference. strong notes of roasted coffee, chocaolate, and bourbon. super smooth and soft on the pallette. top 5 stout anyday.

Finally a beer that lived up to the hype! This was truly worth the hassle of obtaining. Taste mouthful is world class. Creamy burbon explosion describes it best.

Pours jet black with very little head retention and no lacing. Smells of caramel and butterscotch. A very good beer. Tastes like butterscotch and you can really taste the bourbon in this. Love it!
