Poured from bottle. 2013. The classic bourbon county aroma. Extremely smooth with a nice vanilla aftertaste. Lives up to the hype.

Bottle from Mackey’s on NCAA Friday with ck1 & Jan - and many thanks for covering this for me. Pours an opaque black with a brown head. Aroma has sweet vanilla, chocolate, caramel and heavy roast. Taste is of sweet vanilla, roast and chocolate. Decadent and heavy, but super smooth. A touch to the sweet side, but also roasty/chocolatey deep through the body. Full bodied, and smoooooooth. Finishes strong and nicely balanced between bitter and sweet. Alcohol is more after than during, although dancing around the edges. Wonderful option for my 100th imperial stout! Find one and have it, and then have another.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout
13.4 % ABV
APPEARANCE: Poured a midnight deep black. Very little faint toffee colored head that dissipated almost instantly leaving the smallest lace.
AROMA: Holy Cracker Jack's, I literally just checked the bottle for my prize. The nose on this is epic, toffee, vanilla, fresh ground coffee, oak. Wow. Hints of over ripe deep dark berries. Some chocolate and a faint spiciness.
TASTE: Right away expresso, roasted, toasted and nutty. Nice sweet malts, chocolate the ripe berries I got in the nose. Toffee, molasses and then the barrel flavor joins the party. Oak, vanilla, hint of cinnamon. Kinda happy I didn't get the spiciness I grabbed in the nose.
MOUTHFEEL: Very rich, slick and oily. Heavy bodied with very light carbonation. Finished with a nice booziness.
OVERALL: Amazing beer, intense and delicious. Felt it was super balanced and didn't let the coffee over power the other layers. Personally I put this right under Backyard Rye in the bcs lineup so far.
RATING: 4.9/5 Zombie Heads!

Shared with Donnie. Coffee in my opinion makes about everything better and this was no exception. Thick black pour with a smell revealing bold roast coffee, heavy malts, dark chocolate, some char. Taste is sweet and savory all at the same time. Bold roast, coffee, dark chocolate, sweet chocolate, light bourbon, vanilla, oak, dark fruits. Booze is just slightly noticeable. This is fantastic.

Very well rounded aroma with coffee, caramel, and toasted malts. This is "D" Liceo us stuff. Alcohol is certainly apparent but you won’t care since the heavy body more than makes up for that. Top 10 for sure.

Black pour with a small tan head. Smells like a mocha bourbon ball. Taste is similar, plenty of cocoa, coffee, oak, bourbon, and roasted malts. Abv is hidden almost completely. The flavors are interwoven so well, this is a really great beer! Props to sloth for the bottle, thanks man!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz bottle, 2013 vintage. Aroma consists of toasted coconut, bourbon, dark fruit, raisins, oak, licorice. Pours opaque black with a quickly collapsing tan head; leaves a ring of foam that also disappears after five minutes or so, leaving virtually no foam. Flavor is sweet and savory with strong notes of coconut, licorice and dark fruit. Coffee isn’t all that strong in aroma or flavor, actually. Oily mouthfeel, fairly soft carbonation, heavy body. Delicious, as expected, I just wish the coffee was more prominent.
