jbruner (2807) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Pours an opaque black on tap with thin ring of tan lace. Aroma is heavy roasted malt and coffee, a hint of bourbon on the back end. Taste is coffee and then a hint of vanilla, no real booze presence. Decent, but nothing great.

Bagacios (2) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 15, 2015 does not count
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.

bennetporter (209) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2015
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.

Homer321 (2493) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle from the store. Pours light brown with minimal head. Nose is chocolate with a light bourbon nose. Some vanilla as well. Taste is Gawd Awful sour and tart. Damn infected beer. I’m dumping this.

TheHopster (879) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2015
(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

EyeAmBaldman (363) - Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2015
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.
