Large light brown head with very good retention and a sticky coating lace that lasts. Black in color, real black, yes. Nose of chocolate, roast, light vanilla and faint whisky, little dusty. Body is fully medium, oily slick on the palate, soft carbonation, chewy. Well blended flavors with none being dominant. Chocolate, roast, faint caramel and gentle whisky notes. Coffee is subdued also. Dry finish leaves you with roasty, whisky and toasty thoughts. Lasting and highly enjoyable. Nice Stout, indeed. Bottle from statelineliquors

500 mL bottle courtesy of maniac at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11. Pours a pitch black color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, oats, nutty notes, vanilla, coconut. The taste is roasted malts, bitter coffee, vanilla, oats, faint bourbon, bitter hops. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer.

Pours an opaque black with mahogany hues to the fringes. It has a 2-finger brown head that retains well, leaving trace lacing. The nose is vinous and of roasted malts. The flavors have lots of smoked, roasted malt, bitter chocolate, some light cherries showing up mid-palate, and finishing with burnt coffee beans, toasted bitters, and a wonderful lingering bourbon essence. The mouthfeel is kept active with well-integrated carbonation, but has a smooth creamy texture and round body. Great offering here.

marcus (6864) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very brown with a thick light brown head and a chocolate mousse aroma. There is a milk chocolate flavor with a smooth bitter finish and a tasteful bourbon trail. Very mellow.

Ink black, huge frothy tan head. The nose holds massive vanilla bourbon, chocolate roast, cocoa nib, earth, and caramel. The flavor is truly delicious. Huge caramel and vanilla bourbon with milk chocolate and creamy toffee abound. A roasty coffee cocoa nib follows. The palate is super thick and rich with low effervescence and a chalky-sweet finish.

Black pour with a very pretty dense frothy head. Aroma holds a delightful combination of vanilla and sweet wood presence combining with awesome dry dark chocolate, roast, and a balanced ashen tone. The sweet but dry oat presence acts as the catalyst between those two aromatic profiles. Flavor is marked by that same awesome mixture, with some great cherry and marzipan sweetness that quickly moves to the background to make room for fantastic dry bitter and even peaty characteristics. The palate is luscious, perfectly carbonated, and very drinkable. Awesome.

Pours to a black body with a super lively foamy tall ultra dark brown head. Unfortunately, the head dissipated rather quickly. The aroma is sweet chocolate, subtle coffee, vanilla, oats, and a charred oak. The aroma is fairly light. The flavor is sweet oats, some charred black patent or charred wood, vanilla, chocolate, and subtle coffee. Notes of bourbon here and there. The palate could be construed as "thin", but then I see that this is simply a stout and not an imperial stout. There could be some more body, but for the style, it’s pretty spot on. Not overly heavy, not sticky. Good and tasty, but the price is pretty steep @ $17 for what you get. Is that the price of shipping a bourbon barrel to Denmark/Norway? If so, stick with used Scotch or French wine barrels.
