4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This poured a black as night color with basically no head at all. Aroma was just incredible, lots of dark chocolate, loads of vanillay bourbon, some dark fruits and medium roasted malts. Flavor was just a tad bit less impressive than the aroma, lots of sweet bourbony notes, very smooth, with lots of chocolate and fig too. Had this ones side by side with KBS and Darklord and it blew both of them away.

Bottle from MaltOMeal. Thanks!
Pours a deep onyx with a nose of old oak, sweet scotch, and musty chocolate. Flavor is scotch-infused chocolate, bourbon, and oaked candy. Thick on the tongue. Pleasant; would be a great cold weather sipper.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by maltomeal at the Houston 2011 tasting. Dark black-opaque. Nose of barrel, chocolates, and alcohol. Taste is thick, chewy, chocolate, and very dry on the end-almost chalky. A thick, cough syrup beer that is best shared and sipped-I need one for a cold night. Delicious.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2011 (22oz bomber bottled 11/19/10) jet black pour with a nice coasting of the glass and a dark tan head. Nose of bourbon, very rich, vanilla, alcohol, brandy, prunes, amazingly complex and delicious smelling. Taste of big sweet chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, smooth, velvety almost, so flavorful. Itís excellent, and one of the very best iterations of Bourbon County Stout, but it wasnít worth $50. Iíd rather have 3-4 bombers of the coffee version.

Bottles from the always generous phaseslu and BBB. Thanks pals! Consumed with family and friends at a little graduation bbq in south bend. Taste of molasses doughy figs and tangy plums. Dark chocolate and bourbon. Touch of vanilla. The rare really comes forth as it warms. Some nice throat warming heat kicks in. Tasty. Like. Would buy again for 20 bucks. Thanks again beer friends!
