3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours like coffee with some light shining through on the edges with a minimal head. aromas of coffee, vanilla, chocolate and slight coconut. the taste is very roasty with tons of coffee, I am not picking up a ton of bourbon but there is some vanilla present. Mouthfeel is pretty thin for a stout especially one at 8 percent abv. I am not saying this is bad but it is kind of weak for the style.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
pours unclear medium dark brown, red tint, with a reviving light beige cap, minimal retention and lacing. stale coffee, roasted grains, roasted acidity - almost tart; citrus, pine, booze, plain dark malts akin to a poor black ipa, spicy berries, tons of pepper, cigarette buts, hint of vanilla. light carboantion, light body - slightly watery - clearly lacking for style; acrid and ashy-coffee finish. disgusting.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle, split 2 ways at fridge temp. Pour is pretty dark but not pitch black. 1 finger head that fades to nothing. lots of coffee aroma, roasted malts a bit of chocolate, almost any barrel. This is just not good. sweet, fake pretty bland. almost no mouthfeel at all. tiny barrel presence, very weak. sadly, not good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Espuma cremosa que desaparece rápidamente. Aroma de café, licor. Sabor tostado, café, alcohol, especias, se intuye un poco la madera del bourbon. Poco cuerpo, carbonatación baja. Postgusto bastante breve más bien dulce. No está mal, pero el precio es elevado para lo que ofrece.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from bottle. Lovely jet black color with no head.
Coffee taste immediately up front but completely lacks any bourbon or
boozey after-taste that should follow a bourbon barrel aged beer. As a matter of fact, this tastes little more than cold coffee!
Wouldn't drink this again.
