Bottle from Liquid Assets. Dark black body with thin tan head. Nose of malts, licorice, vanilla and coffee. Taste is similar of coffee, malts, milky and a bit alcy at 8%. Very oily and creamy texture. Good stuff.

Black pour with a ruby hue and thin off white head .... Aroma of fresh coffee, caramel and roasted malts along with a nice chocolate flavor .... Taste is of some dry oak, roasted malts, coffee, semi sweet chocolate and caramel malts ..... There are slight hints of bourbon .... Body is thin and the finish is malty and a bit dry .... Shame the taste is not as good as the aroma

Bottle at America on tap.
Rich caramel with hints of roast and plenty of vanilla and butterscotch that at times seems quite bitter. Worse than I thought it would be.

Vanilla and light smoke smell, very dark black with a touch a sediment in suspension...taste is a touch bitter and watery...nothing very good...pretty bold flavor but hard to place what it is, wish it was a bit sweeter...mostly just bitterness

Black color. Thin , beige head . Aroma of coffee , roasted malt and good bourbon. Taste is rather sweet and weak with strange acidity in the end . I was really disappointed by the taste.

Pours very dark like stout always does. Aroma has a lot going on, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and burtn roasted malt. Taste doesn’t quite deliver what is promised through aroma, rather sweet, mild to medium bitter and a strong salty soy sauce like taste. Not unpleasant but a little underwhelming, also next to no head. Rather thing in the mouth. Overall certainly drinkable but not a classic stout

Mild bourbon aroma and not much else. Pours a nice dark color, minimal head. Not much flavor. It shouldn’t take much to find a better at the same price.

Not bad but uneventful for the advertised caliber and abv of beer. Many better to choose from at this price point
