I am not sure if I can add anything to the overly numerous reviews. This is a splendid, solid stout. Incredibly high ABV -- yet not boozy at all. Recommended, highly.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap. Black pour with small dark beige head. Aroma of malts, caramel, vanilla, oak, chocolate, faint coffee, touch of smoke and faint bourbon. Taste of roasted malts, caramel, sweetened chocolate, hint of smoke, touch of coconut, and a nice bourbon finish in the far background. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, perfectly balanced, absolutely delicious!!

2/7 (Home) - 2014 Bottle. Have been a big fan of this beer since the first time Iíve had it. Whiskey is my non beer alcohol of choice. Distinct whiskey and carmel smell and taste is what I love about this beer. The beer is very strong, and pleasant to drink, The texture is smooth, and the blend of flavors works very well. Excellent beer and I look forward to continued drinking of the stout, and their other offerings (have a BC coffee on tap)!

Tasted on tap at Grape & Grain (SFBW). Pours black with toffee head. Nose is caramel, vanilla, molasses, smoke, and sweet malt. Flavour is well balanced sweet dark malts with hints of figs, raisins, molasses, vanilla, oak, and bourbonesque flavours. Medium to full body. Awesome Stout!

Pours dark black with a thin cocoa head. You can really really smell the bourbon in the aroma with just a touch of smoke. An intense oaky taste with a smokey middle and strong bourbon finish.

Poured a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Poured black, small head, gone in an instant. Bourbon aroma dominates. We got some fruit and candy coming thru, the alcohol dominates here. This is real creamy ale, itís flat and the flavor just hangs in there.
Really good, almost too good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 bottle. Aroma of raisins, chocolate, some toasty oak vanilla, maple syrup, a hint of a citrusy hop, and alcohol. Opaque coffee brown, watery, no head or lace. Tastes of grassy european hop up front followed by roasty malt and a slightly charred campfire marshmellow, and chocolate - a very mellow vanilla tip toes in the background the entire time; slightly more bitter than sweet with a strong alcohol presence. Palate is watery and fizzy with a large gulp, but feels oily in small sips. Overall, good in small doses, i would prefer to drink this like a spirit, in sips.
