Bottle in wine glass. Have had this fresh and now just on the BB-date. The alcohol was a bit too strong to begin with and now with age has stepped out even further. A bold brew for sure but but not for the records.

Itís pretty good. The boozey taste can be a bit much at times, but the complex choclately coffee taste paired with the whiskey is fun.

Bottle with Twostal. Aroma of chocolate ice cream and light bourbon barrel. Very dark brown with beige head. Taste is chocolaty and bittersweet, and a little metallic; not really any bourbon, but the wood is there. Full bodied, thick and creamy.

On tap at yard house, red rocks. Pours black with a tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, wood, vanilla and bourbon. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a slight boozy finish. Worth having again.

First time drinking this in a few years. Bottle from 2015. Not as impressed as I once was, though, sadly. Iím getting bourbon on the nose, oak and some vanilla on the palate, and lots of bourbon on the finish, but there isnít the fullness that lights up your tongue like some other big stouts. Itís missing some of that deep, cocoa-y roast Iíd like an imperial stout, and the flavors donít seem to meld. Itís not overly complex. I really want to love this beer, but Iím just liking it.

Tap at Hay Merchant. Deep black or, team head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coconut, some bourbon, oak. Lovely. Luscious mouthfeel, taste follows aroma nicely. A winner.

12 Fl. Oz. let me get it out of the way... WOW...!!! I understand the hype... poured black with a nice tan head. Aroma of bourbon, malts, caramel and vanilla. Lots of bourbon but done right (does not overpowers the complexity of this beer), also some coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Very good, very complex, extremely enjoyable.

Dark brown color. Chocolate aromas, bourbon, vanilla, alcohol and wood. Light roasted taste, chocolate, sweet boubon hints of vanilla and some wood. Sweet finish. Iím starting to think I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I like it.
