4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle tasting at DLD. You’ll have to forgive me for my less than thourough tasting notes... a drunk taster with a destroyed palate does not, a proficient rater, make!
"Oh yum, all that is BCS, then perfect coffee." <--- Official tasting notes, lol.
So glad I found someone willing to share this with me... a wonderful experience that I will be looking forward to again when it hits my neck of the woods later this month.

Thanks to George, Black pour with a brown head. Aroma was rich, bourbon and coffee. Taste was amazing. the aroma leads you into believing its going to be great, the taste goes even further. Bourbon, coffee, Wow. Very chewy. The beer left a nice coating on the glass.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark, viscous black with a small light brown head. The aroma is very similar to the regular BCS. The flavor is for the most part, but there is a lot of coffee bitterness in with the bourbon, vanilla, roast, oak, and chocolate. Really good stuff.

Poured by Jared @ Whiskey fest
Black pour brown head with great lacing. Sweet vanilla, bourbon, syrups touch of lightly bitter coffee coming through in the aroma. A full creamy palate. The coffee mostly comes through in the aftertaste. A very nice compliment to the bourbon county still sweet first vanilla, a touch of chocolate & some syrups.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 Bottle shared at DLD by Beth’s friend. THanks! I’d say i like the regular BCS better than coffee BCS. But I like Coffee bcs better than vanilla bean bcs. those are the only 3 variations i’ve had. This was solid. Very clean fresh coffee in the taste and aroma. Gotta get some bottles of this for myself. I’d also like to try a larger sample of this when I’m sober. ... now have bottle. will rerate soon.

Bottle. Labled bourbon county coffee stout. Aroma is strong with coffee and bourbon. There are sweet and roasted malts in there with notes of dark chocolate, oak, and vanilla. Palate is chewy. Taste is sweet and brings out the coffee and the bourbon.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from vbs purchased by awiseman and shared with brother Eric. Nose is straight up like a cup of coffee, with some sweetness. Pours sinfully dark with a deep tan head (just the way I like ’em). I get lots of the sweetness of the original bourbon county, but as it starts to go down, I notice the coffee flavor with a combination of bitterness and sweetness. As always, smooth as silk as it rolls across the tongue. This beer is the holy trifecta of coffee, bourbon, and beer. Can’t wait to see what a year can do for it..

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2010 Bottle. Pour is viscous and black with a thin ring of tan head. Aroma is loaded with coffee along with rich burnt brown sugar, maple bacon, roasted malt, light vanilla, and coffee ice cream. The aroma is intoxicating. I almost don’t want to drink this because I fear that it will not taste as good as it smells. But of course Im going to. Flavor is also loaded with notes of roasted malt, brown sugar bacon, a nice amount of coffee (but not too much), faint vanilla, and light bourbon. Very well balanced and very rich. Much to my relief, it really does taste very similar to the way it smells. I need more of this; I think it is exceptional.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is black-brown, but looks more brown in light. This stout has a very quick bubbly head that dissapears just as fast. Aroma of coffee right away and very hot scents of booze. Taste is more the same very hot feeling of booze ( kinda wishin I would of waited on this one to share or even store) also coffee all around and coco as well. I feel that this is hot and sticky with a dry hot swallow. Let this one rest for awhile in the closet. It is Hot!
