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.

pityu (461) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle - Black colour with small beige head, poor retention. Sweet toffee nose with decent barrel aroma, some roasted malts, chocolate. Taste is chocolate, some coffee, caramel and woody, earthy notes. Medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, roasty and a bit boozy finish. Not bad, but ist like a demo version of this style.

DavoleBomb (1744) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured into a snifter. 2.5 A: Dark brown color. I couldn’t get much of a head to form, even with an aggressive pour. 3.25 S: Smells like a weasel or a muskrat with a dirty earthy vibe. Big leather from the barrel, supply roasted coffee. Like all of their beers, the barrel is the focus. Oak, vanilla, toastiness, caramel, apple, and toffee. Not a whole lot of stout going on though. Still, the barrel and coffee smell nice. 3.0 T: Again, mainly coffee and barrel. Coffee is the strongest flavor. Oak, leather, and vanilla follow. Caramel and apple. Tastes more like a cup of coffee than an imperial stout. 3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking in creaminess but not too bad here. 2.75 D: It’s not bad, but it’s not much of a beer. ★ 770 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 12, 2015

jandd1983 (3450) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of coffee, bourbon, vanilla, caramel and some chocolate. The taste was similar to the aroma with caramel, coffee, roast, chocolate and vanilla. Good stuff.

Very thin for stout. Seems like a bourbon barrel porter more than a stout. Strange taste. Probably the worst bourbon barrel stout that I have tasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hammy78 (918) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2015
Bottle from the brother in-law. Pours opaque,thin mocha/ khaki head, lace spots but minor. Nose is deep dark roast malt. Nose is pure coffee. Tastes bitter, coffee, sweet.

kramer (5611) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a flat black body with a small fizzy beige head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The nose is slightly sweet with some dark caramel, a slight bourbon note, minimal wood, coffee, and some dark chocolate. The flavor is not quite as sweet as I was expecting, it’s a bit weak and bland really. Just the slightest character from the barrel, more coffee than anything. Minimal alcohol flavor, especially for an 8% ABV. Lighter bodied with a slight cling on the finish and light fizzy carbonation. Meh, a little boring this one.

12oz bottle of beer available to me that I got in a shitty trade. Another after work Thanksgiving beer with the squad. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, caramel, and hints of bad coffee. Taste mimics the nose with a thin mouthfeel.

fuzzcro (98) - Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Mild. No bitter. Could have a thicker consistency but it’s still in line with some of the other stouts I’ve had. It’s a fair stout and I would drink it again.

Bottle from Liquid Assets. Dark black body with thin tan head. Nose of malts, licorice, vanilla and coffee. Taste is similar of coffee, malts, milky and a bit alcy at 8%. Very oily and creamy texture. Good stuff.

italianjohn (2680) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Black pour with a ruby hue and thin off white head .... Aroma of fresh coffee, caramel and roasted malts along with a nice chocolate flavor .... Taste is of some dry oak, roasted malts, coffee, semi sweet chocolate and caramel malts ..... There are slight hints of bourbon .... Body is thin and the finish is malty and a bit dry .... Shame the taste is not as good as the aroma
