Rich black color; Heavy creamy body; Aroma of smoky malt, oak, vanilla, coffee, bourbon, & licorice; Flavor of roasted sweet malt, caramel, molasses/syrup, rich coffee/espresso, chocolate, and dark fruit (notably plums); Warm finish; Nicely balanced & complex; Excellent stout - but I still prefer the standard BCS.

2013 Los Inmortales. Coffee, booze, toffee aroma. Pours black with almost no dark tan head that rapidly fizzles away. Candy toffee mocha sweetness balanced with a coffee/espresso bitterness and a nice boozy warm finish. So amazing.

Last minute substitution by max at clocking new year. Pours deep brown with thick pillowy head. Nose of deep coffee. Tastes of rich coffee, some chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, earth, some dark fruits, and light piney hops. Thick and full bodied but not cloying.

Beer is pitch black with a small head but pours very thick. The nose has coffee up front with vanilla and oak. Taste is more coffee with an alcohol punch. The finish is long with some roasted fruit. Great beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. 2013 bottling. Pours very dark opaque brown/black. Little to no head. Lots of coffee in the nose, sweet nutty notes as well, very little Bourbon. Body thick, rich, full, finish complex with coffee bitterness and Bourbon bite. Nice but not the best ever.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2013 bottle poured into a snifter. Black with a fast-fading tan head of less than 1 finger. Aroma of serious coffee grinds, hints of bourbon and roasted malts. The taste is basically perfect. Coffee, bourbon, dark chocolate, roasted dark malts, a little caramel, oak barrel, a little alcohol. Mouthfeel is typical of bcbs plus espresso and some warming alcohol/syrups. Sooo damn good!!

strong aroma of coffee, chocolate, sugar, vanilla, cream, tiny bit of bourbon. Taste is very sweet but delicious. Fairly strong alcohol finish, warming in my chest. Roasty, toasty, chocolate, and booze. delicious.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (2013, fresh). Pours black with a boozy ring around it, nice tan head. Aroma is intense coffee, caramel. Taste is huge punch of coffee - bittersweet, strong, and complex. Some sweetness here but nothing along the lines of the Backyard Rye from this year’s releases. More subtle, caramel/toffee tones. A little bitter finish. A fantastic release.
