3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is pitch black with a tan head that dissipates very quickly. No lacing whatsoever. Aroma is bitter coffee, vanilla, chocolate, bourbon soaked wood, raisin, plumb, sweet alcohol. Very inviting. Taste is mostly the same as the nose, not much coffee on the tongue, however. Thereís an almost overwhelming bourbon flavor though. For me, the bourbon is too strong. Velvety mouthfeel. Pretty good, but Iíd rather drink PLENTY of other stouts. Gonna let this sit a year or two.

This beer is phenomenal. Definitely one of my favorites. A friend graciously shared it with me and it was worth every sip. Tastes of dark fruit, vanilla, and bourbon. Luxurious mouthfeel, very thick on the palate. A very deep mahogany in color, minimal head.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours jet black with small tan head and no lacing. Aroma of bourbon, dark chocolate, dark fruit, cherries, and some cider. Taste is the same with soy sauce, slight alcohol burn, with chocolate and bourbon that lingers. Wow this is good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Too sweet for my palate. Yes black-hole. Yes great nose. But it flattens out during taste and it was 21$ for 4.! Bitter coffee aftertaste. But I do like it. I will not buy it again as there are better options out there. Think Kentucky.

Pours pitch black. Aroma of slight cofree and heavier on the bourbon side. Taste is amazing. Itís just like the way it taste, coffee with a aftertaste of bourbon.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours black with almost no head. There is lively carbonation. It has a roasted, chocolate, bourbon aroma to it. The initial taste is live a dark chocolate that sweetens with a bourbon mixture and roasted flavors. It has a lively, tingly texture to it with a bitter finish.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Comes out of the tap rich coffee brown with a dark tan head. Rich aroma fills the nostrils with coffee, roast malt, bourbon-soaked wood, and subtle chocolate and caramel notes. This aroma screams "Drink me!" Bold flavor has rich coffe, toasty malt, sharp bourbon, oak, and chocolate notes that roar across the palate while caramel and molasses whispers tiptoe in the background. Thick, heavy, viscous texture has a fair if not strong fizz. I have been hunting this for some time, and he has been - ahem - a wild goose chase. Until now. This is a goose worth chasing!

The perfect beer. Founders KBS comes in a close second, but this one is better balanced, more oak, more true to its name.
