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

lukin (529) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2015
bottle. Pours dark black, very little head. Heavy on the coffee flavours and aroma, not much bourbon other than a bit of sweet finish. Decent.

12 ounce bottle pourers a deep black color with off-white head that dissipates quickly. Slight coffee aroma. Caramel and toffee flavoring along with some chocolate flavor. Full-bodied, a bit sweet in the end.

Have had bottled and on tap. Entering from previous tastings, no detailed notes. Mostly coffee with an artificial bourbon/oak/liquid smoke characteristic. Too thin. The fakeness of the flavor mellows out as it warms up, so it finishes as a decent coffee stout, at least.

This is a heavy on the coffee stout, should be called Kentucky Coffee. If you are in the mood for bitter chocolate, coffee, you will love this one, the day I drink it, it was just what I was looking. Any other day I would want more sweetness to round out the bitterness.
