On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Breakfast Stout was already a favorite, but this is on another level. Someone send me some CBS now!

2013 bottle into a Danish pour. Pours inky black with no head, little to no lacing. Huge, awesome coffee aroma with hints of vanilla and booze. Taste is creamy, vanilla, espresso, oak, booze burn, dark chocolate, a bit overly sweet.. Everything I was expecting. Definitely a sipper. Could definitely use sometime to cool down the booze.

Bottle received in trade. Thanks Kevin! Aroma of bourbon, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, roasted sexiness. Rich creamy mocha head, deep dark pour, some irregular lacing. Somewhat viscous. Soft, nearly flat carbonation, full body, velvety. Feels a shade thin on the tongue after a bit (not sure how thatís possible, really). Taste follows nose, but also adds smoky (think, charred oak). Overall: Does not disappoint. The bourbon, coffee and stout all come together beautifully in a way that leaves each flavor distinct and yet part of a cohesive whole.

Nose is dark chocolate, coffee and some molasses sweetness. Taste is wonderful with nice hints of cocoa, coffee and bourbon booze. Pour is black as night and thick as oil. Mouthfeel is thick and yummy. Overall still awesome and I loooove this beer.

Dark black body with a coffee/tan colored head. Smells of dark chocolate, coffee, and notes of oats. Tastes extremely rich and of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and oats. A very thick and full mouthfeel.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a black motor oil (almost) with a very thick head that may never go down. Big aromas of whiskey upfront, wood/oak, big caramel, vanilla, roasted malts, and no alcohol noticed. Flavors of light whiskey(more subdued in flavors), wood/oak, vanilla, medium alcohol only through the nose, and caramel. Very thick feel and up top on the thickness of all beers tried. Medium bitter light to medium sweet and very complex! Aromas are so big there is so much going on behind all the whiskey! I liked how you can notice a medium vanilla note in the middle of the flavors. The whiskey flavors are the only thing that turned me off slightly. Really an amazing stout that deserves its high acclaim to fame. My 700th beer rated.
