dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - NOV 30, 2012
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.

tightslice (773) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Winter Park, FL. Aroma is spent coffee, some smoky caramel, some vanilla, touch of bourbon. Taste is strong, acidic coffee with some light fruit and vanilla notes. Had much more of a coffee vibe despite the name. Could use some more bourbon.

boto (2062) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Draught @ Tapped: Surprisingly served in a pint glass. This one pours a dark, inky opaque brown color. It had a fingers worth of a tight brown head that didn’t linger long. Nice aroma. Touch of bourbon, faint chocolate, faint roastiness, malts. A little more than medium bodied. Good taste and only a touch of the bourbon. Chocolate malts. Actually a touch of bitterness over the slight sweetness.

ABUSEDGOAT (2488) - California, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Black pour, small tan head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is one dimensional oak barrel, vanilla, chocolate, roast. Medium bodied, this is about as predictable as a BA stout can be - simplistic chocolate barrel flavor with a little bit more. This brewery has a great business concept but fails to execute.

oldrtybastrd (4887) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2016
- Pours a deep dark brown color. Small tan head head that lasted throughout. Aromas of bourbon and wood. Flavor was a lot of bourbon, hints of smoke, chocolate. Full bodied and creamy. Tasted more bourbon than beer.

rouhlas (2246) - GREECE - APR 25, 2016
From bottle courtesy of Maria and Vasilis. Thanks guys! Dark brown almost black color with beige brown head. Roasted malty aroma, milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, Sweet and bitter taste like aroma but not as good. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation.

chucklemation (1202) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Pours a jet black with a thin off-white head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, and caramel. Flavor is bourbon, vanilla, hints of coffee, and caramel. Has a thin body with some carbonation, and a bad aftertaste. I was expecting something bigger and fuller like an imperial stout, but this is more like a beer-cola hybrid. Not terrible, but definitely not great.

polo_marco (220) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Small of strong coffee and roasted barley. Rich deep black color. Taste starts off suttle with hints of vanilla from the bourbon barrel followed by strong smooth coffee. Flat like carbonation with full body. Wish there was more carbonation but flavor definitely tickles my palate Just right. Nice work.

Peux mousseuse pour une stout On arrive encore ŕ trouver quelques reflets au travers d’une lumičre Au nez on va sentir le chocolat noir, whisky, bois En bouche on va tout de suite avoir des saveur des chocolat noir , par contre elle manque vraiment de longueur... Dommage

Fules (309) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 28, 2016
Habja egyáltalán nincs. Koromfekete. Illatát a kávé és a pörkölt maláta adja, de van egy picinyke savanykás vonása is. Ez bizony kávés! Meg persze pörkölt, vagyis stout. Épp csak jelzés értékűen édeskés, ami valszeg a malátától van, és nem cukortól. Határozott a gyümölcsös beütése, de szerencsére nem esik túlzásba. Kifejezetten testes. Határozottan szerencsés összhang. Tetszik ez a sör!
