3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark black body with a brown head that faded quickly. Carbonation was very mild. Aroma had a strong booze presence. There was nice roasted coffee notes, but the bourbon really overpowered the beer. Flavor was very sweet, almost cloying, there was just enough bitterness from the roasted malts and coffee malts to prevent it. Aftertaste was a lingering bourbon flavor. Interesting flavors of wood and charcoal. Nice body. A decent beer, its initial sweetness may have taken away from it.

22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. Consumed in 2011, but I didnít record what year bottle it was. Pours a very dark black with a small tan head. No lacing. No retention. Sticky as hell. Looks like regular Bourbon County.
Bourbon and lots of it on the nose. I get the stout behind it a bit and some of the coffee, but really itís a bourbon show. After a strong whiff, I actually get a strong fruitiness that I didnít get before.
Bourbon and coffee flavors mix. Itís a nice blend, really. Itís not too coffee forward. Has a chocolate flavor in the back and a bit of a vegetal flavor that is odd. Itís all about the bourbon, though.
So boozy. So very very boozy. Low carbonation. Not too heavy, but a thick, mouth-coating stout. Itís a hint smoother than regular Bourbon County.
I donít think the coffee adds much. It adds a slight dimension. . A delicious beer, but I think itís still rough around the edges.

Smells like bell peppers, enchiladas, and coffee. Medium carbonation with mild foam. Taste is very roasty coffee, alcohol taste and warmth, mild bourbon, dark chocolate, and bell peppers in the aftertaste.

2010 Bottle. Aroma and taste of dark roasted coffee, thick and dry malt bitter aftertaste, but still some sweetness. Great well balanced beer.

Finally, donít know why it took so long before I got a chance to taste this one. Glad I finally did. Itís a bit to soft for me, but after all it is still a very good brew ofcourse

2012 bomber sampled at Chrisís bachelor party. Black pour with a persistent tan ring after head fades. Aroma is roasty coffee with some sweet notes. Mouth feel is full body, smooth and creamy with a slight stickiness. Bourbon flavor was significantly subdued due to 2+ years of aging but was still absolutely delicious.

On top at Howell and hood. 6 months age. Strongly prefer this to the normal BCS, the coffee is subtle but adds a nice taste that cuts the booze a bit and tones back the sweetness. Can't wait to try this fresh next year, as I've heard the coffee fades

Six-month-old bottle. Pours nearly flat, inky and black. Aroma is beautiful: rich, oily coffee beans; dark chocolate; vanilla; toasted coconut; a little caramel and butterscotch. Coffee in the flavor is slightly more bitter and biting. Dark chocolate blends into mocha goodness before a solid background of dark cherries, sweet and tart. Mild, prickly carbonation; a touch of fizz; nowhere near as much alcohol burn as there should be. Delightful.
