Poured from bottle, no head. Nice bourbon smell but virtually no bourbon taste at all. Lots of coffee and seems to me almost like coffee flavored sparkling water. Had high hopes but they were dashed.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong, rich aroma of roast coffee and humorous. Appears a deep amarose or penchlen. Tastes good, strongly of coffee again, not a lot of Bourbon, or at least not as sweet as some. Cola and ankleberry, some cigarette. No head retention, and thin body, a bit lacking to my tastes there. Overall probably best a touch warmer than straight icebox. Coffee and cola predominate.

APPEARANCE - of course, black.
NOSE - mostly bourbon. No stout scents.
FLAVOR - so so. Not what I expected for a stout, not roasty, or deep flavor. Bourbon flavor comes through a bit.

Po nazwie spodziewałem się super uderzenia wanilii i nut typowych dla piw leżakowanych w beczce. Zawiodłem się nieco. Jest dość spokojnie i łagodnie. Piwo jest zbyt lekkie, nazbyt sesyjne.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A decent aroma full of malt and coffee with a hint of chocolate. A dark burnt brown/blackish color with a great tan head that dissipates swiftly. Starts out with strong malt and coffee, then definitely gets some caramel/vanilla notes and finishes easy. Was a decent stout overall.
