A great bourbon aroma. Poured dark in a glass with a little bit of brown foam. Long lingering bourbon and chocolate flavor on the palate. Worth the wait!

Very strong bourbon aromas which continued through the initial taste. Really potent brew with all kinds of deep dark coffee and fruit flavors. Tends forward the sweeter side of the scale. Definitely a one beer experience or make sure you have a designated driver.

Draft - pours black with almost no head. I even swirled it around to produce head but no go. Nose is wood and vanilla. Sip adds roast, sugar and bourbon. Sweet and dry. Long bourbon finish that satisfies. Worth the hype.

Bottle poured a thick black hue w/ a small tan mostly diminishing head. Bold bourbon barrel aroma. Initial flavor is bold sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are bourbon, dark roast coffee, wooden barrel, molasses, and light cherry. Big bodied, syrupy mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and a boozy warm finish.

Huge bourbon aroma and taste but better than bourbon itself, IMO. Wood and vanilla, chocolate, caramelized sugar. Doesnít hide the alcohol but not overwhelmed by it either. Tasty stuff!

2013 bottle served slightly cool into a snifter. Superb. Notes of booze, bourbon, chocolate. I also detect a lot more cherry than I expected, both in aroma and taste. Mouthfeel is silky, creamy and rich. I would have to have a taste testing with other of my top picks, but this is certainly up in top 5 stouts for me. Great

355ml/12floz bottle into a tulip glass. Served cool.
Aroma: Very rich chocolate. Boozy. Some coffee notes. Very rich aroma. Exceptionally nice.
Appearance: Pitch black body. A very minimal dark brown head that dissipates away into nothing.
Taste: Bittersweet chocolate. A little cream. The flavor is big, but itís not over-powering. A little boozy.
Palate: Rich and full bodied. Long, bittersweet finish.
Overall: Fantastic, fantastic stout. Lovely flavors and a fantastic body.

Dark dark pour with a tan head that doesnít hang around long. The aroma is whiskey, malts, sweetness, vanilla, and chocolate. The taste is beautiful. Even though itís fresh, the bourbon wasnít too strong. Dark malts, fruit, bourbon, vanilla, and cocoa nibs go down with light carbonation and a warming sensation. Iím happy to of been able to buy a case of this after that first sip.
