3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Darkness Day eve, thanks to StFun for sharing. Pours a black appearance with a dark brown head. Roast, dark chocolate, light chocolate, whiskey and some fruit in the nose. Many people complained about a massive infection in this beer but I didn’t think it was too bad. There was a touch of a twanginess but the bourbon and booze seemed to cover it pretty well. I’d like to try another bottle but I kind of enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Infected - dammit. Still pretty good, but I wish I could try it good. Slight wood. Sour fruit - I’m sure unintentional.

Sampled at 2011 RBWG. Pours black with zero head. The nose is black coffee, roast and dark chocolate. The taste is all rich coffee with some roasted malt. Nice.

Tasted on 4/28/12 with the Nashville and Knoxville crews at Curtis’ old house, big thanks to JR for bringing this one. Pours nearly black with a thin tan head that leaves no lacing. The nose is dominated by coffee with dark chocolate, vanilla, coconut, maple, and toffee. The flavor is sweet with malted milk, and all of the same vanilla, dark chocolate, coconut, and maple. The body is full with average, smooth carbonation and a long coffee, vanilla, and coconut finish.

Draft @ Jackie O’s (samples from bottle since). Pours black with a small lasting beige head. The aroma has all the parts a big stout should have: roasted malt,some smoke, dark chocolate with the bourbon integrating nicely. The addition of big coffee notes add another layer to enjoy. Touches of vanilla. The flavor is also not dominated by the bourbon, but has a strong coffee component. Dark chocolate, roast, some smoke, vanilla and bourbon. Medium plus bodied and a real treat to drink. I have enjoyed this quite a bit.
