BIF project. Pours pitch black, no head, no lacing. Aroma is divine... bourbon, vanilla, roasted cacao nibs, dark chocolate, mild coconut, intense roasted coffee. Flavor is immediate bourbon but gives way to an amazing complex flavor bomb... Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, back to chocolate then some coconut then back to bitter chocolate with some good bitterness sneaking through right at the end with the alcohol warning. Fantastic.

Tasted a 2014 bottle on 4-12-2015.
Wow, it has a huge bourbon barrel flavor! Tons of vanilla, dried coconut and dried fruits with a super silky mouthfeel.
It's easily a top 10 bourbon in my opinion. It deserves to be alongside other great stouts such as the Firestone 18th, KBS, and Old Rasputin Barrel Aged.

Pretty amazing. Pours thick black with dark brown gead. Smells of soy sauce, vanilla, cola, chocolate. Tons of bourbon flavors. Coconut, vanilla, leather. Only aged 7 months, so this has tons of booziness. It is so warm in my chest. Mouth feel is almost sickly sweet, but sip this one and youíll be fine. Really complex stuff

Fantastic Brew! Pours black thick with beige thin head, creamy. Wonderful port wine aroma, black currants and wild cherries. Velvety on mouth, with vanilla bourbon kick. Marvelous!

The perfect bourbon barrel stout. Smells of bourbon, sweet oaky vanilla, black licorice, cocoa, and some caramel. Very thick on the palate, the bourbon is the main focus but you also get some coffee, honey and vanilla. A bit more whiskey heat on the back end and leaves a chocolate taste on the tongue. Overall itís an awesome beer, the king of bourbon barrel stouts. One of the must try beers for any beer lover

Must have had 2013 back then. Just updating this app. I recall enjoying it a lot and thinking the bourbon was balanced well. It didnít over power anything.

 355ml bottle. Pitch black with a thin ring of brown foam. Flavors are roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, caramel, vanilla, smoke, oak and bourbon. Pleasant alcohol warmth, but never too boozy. Full body, soft carbonation, creamy texture.
