Not a bad try, but still paper thin for a stout. Instead of the melding together, the vanilla and bourbon flavors lead out of nowhere and are a tad incongruous with the beer. Mellow. Nice. Not great though.

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

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Originally rated on 11/12/14. Black body with ruby highlights, thin mid tan cap. Aromas are on the faint side but hints of bourbon, and oak. Flavor of dirt, cheap watery bourbon with some dark roasted malt notes, not very good at all. Mouthfeel is thin and prickly from the carbonation, with a dry bitter finish.
