Pours deep brown with opaque clarity. The delicate head is 2 fingers but dissipates quickly. First note in the aroma is a alcoholic, which is a bit unmasked by the coffee and cereal 2nd notes. Has a dry finish.

Pours a black-brown with a thin khaki head from a bottle. Roasted coffee aroma and flavor notes over bitter chocolate and black malts, I don’t get much from the bourbon, except maybe a hint of oaky vanilla.

(Bottle). Deep brown complexion with quickly diminishing head. Malty flavor with slightly bitter coffee and mild bourbon. Overly carbonated for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours mahogany with a thick khaki head that leaves no lacing in the glass. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate and a pinch of bourbon. I don’t really taste much bourbon in this. It has a strong coffee taste with a tiny bit of sweetness on the backend. I’m guessing that’s supposed to be the bourbon, but I don’t get it. There are a ton of better bourbon barrel beers out there but as a stout, this is pretty good.

Good beer but I enjoyed the pungent flavor of bourbon more in the ale than in this offering.
