I was really excited to try this. What a letdown. There is some battle with the bourbon and coffee flavors that give it some sort of off-putting rotten vegetable taste to me. Maybe my palette was off today, maybe coffee and bourbon don't mix. I may try this again in the future. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to DrSilverWorm. Pours black with a big frothy head that fades quickly to a big bubbled ring. Aroma is coffee beans, bourbon, oak, and burnt wood. Taste is a solid mix of coffee beans, burnt oak and watery bourbon. Slight bitterness in the finish. Pretty smooth. Carbonation is pretty high for a stout but not too bad. Mouthfeel is a bit chalky. Not a bad choice if you want a low abv BB stout.

Pours opaque dark brown. Small tan head. Pronounced bourbon aroma. Also some odd chemical aroma, almost like drain cleaner, plus some wood. Palette is a bit chalky. I get the coffee in the flavor, but not really in the aroma. Maybe a bit overcarbonated. The flavor changes a bit as it warms, but there’s not so much there.

Nearly black with a thin oily head of varying size bubbles. Strong buttery aroma of bouborn. Palate is thin and fizzy; taste is strongly of bourbon with a bit of fruitcake when it’s a bit too cold; when it warms up, notes of coffee come to the front.

Almost black pour with tan head. Nose of chocolate, roast malt and coffee. Very faint hints of bourbon. Flavor is chocolate and coffee with mild bourbon. Well-blended, but light. Subtle flavors. Quite enjoyable.

Bottle at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours a dark brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has light chocolate notes with earthy dark grains and a hint of bourbon. Flavor has chocolate throughout with dark grains and a touch of bourbon in the finish.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle:   Dark, soft stout.   Bourbon barrel aging is minor.   A little graham cracker and faint woodiness on the tongue.   Light, almost more of a Porter or even a strong Brown Ale.   Faint coffee and dark chocolate, and I mean faint.   Also the Bourbon is nearly non-existant, woodiness is not really there.   After having several Bourbon aged beers tonight, this one was just weaksauce.
