Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown (almost black) with a small, creamy, taupe head. Great retention. The aroma delivers fantastic notes of bourbon, big-time vanilla, toasted coconut and fudge. Full-bodied and velvety with airy carbonation. The flavor features deeply roasted malts, fudge, dark chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut and bourbon. Lightly burnt, bittersweet, vanilla finish. World class beer here, courtesy of Rosebud butternuts!

chocolate, bottle thanks to errl. Black pour with a small creamy head that fades to a nice ring and leaves great lacing. Aromas are cream, marshmallow, vanilla, oak, milk chocolate, and light cinnamon. Tastes solid. Sweet cream, milk chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and light coconut. Thin to medium body. This is good but I wish it was richer and thicker.

I did not receive the head or lacing I was hoping to get out of two pours.
The bourbon and coffee is strong with this one. In my personal taste, it was too much coffee for me. I also got some vanilla and caramel. With a nice warm sensation as a finish.

Pours a pure black with a slight head. The aroma of sweet bourbon dominates the scent. Tastes of bourbon with a hint of Jack Daniels, and black cherries. Very nice finish. I really liked it overall.

Great stout! Can really taste the bourbon barrel flavor coming through. Not too heavy on the palate.

Deep black pour under a foamy khaki head. Wonderful nose of earthy bourbon and charred oak with some roastiness, vanilla, cocoa, and a little bourbony coconut. Amazing flavor with brown sugar bourbon, earthy oak tannins, vanilla, wood char, chocolate, coconut, and sweet brown sugar with earthy roasty chocolate. Amazing.
