This beer is simply outstanding, beer of the year, right up there with Pirate Bomb. Drink this beer now its perfectly aged and ready to go. The explosion of coconut is perfectly sweet and not overbearing. The aroma is a sweet bomb but you come back for more. The taste is balanced expertly with the coconut melding with barrel, and dark chocolate. I hate the hype train, but damn this lives up to it.

pushkinwow (2432) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle from Phil at the 2015 year end Ottawa bash. A nice dark black pour with nothing on top. Unsweetened and slightly roasted coconut, dark chocolate and slightly chewy almost burnt malt, light vanilla, espresso remains, oak, a warming but well balanced booziness. Full body and mild carbonation, sweet but not overpowering, long finish.

Boutip (5465) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coconut and black chocolate with some bourbon and some vanilla notes. Taste is a complex and satisfying mix of vanilla and bourbon with some black chocolate with just the right amount of coconut. Quite a bit of residual sugar notes but not overly so. Body is full with nice creamy body and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Such a shame that this was only brewed once.

Received in trade from jcwattsrugger. Thanks JC. Deep dark brown to black pour. Modest tan head. Even after two years the alcohol bite is still on the nose along with the bourbon notes, dark fruit notes, licorice, and toasted malt character. Medium to full body. Smooth texture. All those dark chocolate, roasted malt, and dark fruit characters interact with each other beautifully to make this one tasty and vibrant beer. I have no reason to question why this gets such high ratings.

hackobock (2764) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2015
December 4, 2015. Bottle at home, received in a trade with craftbeer1over, thanks!
Black with a quickly dissipating minimal head, leaving no trace. Aroma is sweet with toffee, vanilla, prunes, hints of figs, toasted coconut, spicy rye whiskey notes and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet malts and dried fruits, roasted bitterness. Finish is sweet with figs, prunes, caramel, vanilla, hints of warming bourbon with some peppery notes, dry bitter cocoa. Full bodied, oily sticky texture, soft carbonation.
Great renditio of bourbon county stout.

deekyn (1441) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Pour is like the darkness itself, with no head of course. Nose is all bourbon county with a hint of coconut rum. Molasses, cacao, dark chocolate, bourbon, slight graininess. Rich, subtle complex palate. My favorite bourbon county to date. Taste is all the best parts of a mellowed bourbon county with a nice hint of coconut rum.

Bottle. Aromas are rich chocolate fudge, coconut husk, maple syrup, and some dark fruit. Tastes moderately sweet. Light booze and so smooth. Loads of melted chocolate and light coconut and oak. Slightly spicy in the finish. Awesome.
