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.

Pitch black pour with a brown head. Earthy woodsy aroma with vanilla and some prunes. On the palate it is fairly big with cereal mash a tad sweet with some toast and prunes. not bad beer at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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.
