2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Too thin of a stout. If ever there was a generic bourbon barrel flavor this had it. Not undrinkable, just watery, sweet, and almost acidic.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark pour, almost black. Nice coffee and roasted malts in the aroma which also follow in the taste. Couldn’t find any bourbon in the aroma or taste. Body is slightly watery for the style. Not bad overall, with some good coffee presence, but no bourbon.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours near black with thin beige head. Has the aroma of roasted coffee beans and cocoa. Taste is coffee, chocolate, rotated malt, smoke and a hint of bourbon. Pretty good stout.

Rated based on notes taken 19 July 2013 -- This is a very good stout, drank after a Wake ’n Bake by Terrapin and it is not as good, but holds up to it.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a dark brownish black. Lighter tan head. Smell isn’t that bad. Light chocolate, coffee, and a hint of whiskey. The taste though is pretty unbearable. It tastes like when you burp and a little puke comes up combined with some Starbucks frappachino made with rotten milk. I seriously couldn’t get drunk on this if it were the only thing at an open bar at a wedding.

A nice blend of coffee, bourbon, and hops. A nice toasty taste with good consistency.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is pretty good. Not as roasted as a lot of stouts and not as sweet as a lot of bourbon barrel beers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft poured into glass. 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. Was a decent stout overall, but for the cost there are better options I think. Starts out with strong malt and coffee, then definitely gets some caramel/vanilla notes and finishes easy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark brown black with small head and almost no lacing . Roasty, woody aroma with a little bourbon. Mildly sweet and mildly boozy. Thin body for a stout. Subtle medium finish mostly wood.

Strong aroma of oak, dark chocolate, and coffee. Flavor comparable to the aroma, profile like a pinot noir. A wonderful and unique beer.
