Dark dark brown, almost black. Nice off white head. Raisiny aroma with huge notes of vanilla, coffee, chocolate. Heavy on the tongue, lively carbonation, hints of boozy chocolate cake. This is good stuff.

slowrunner77 (7089) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
he look is close to advertised...30 weight motor oil, with a touch of head. aroma is sweet bourbon, oak, chocolate, alcohol & coffee. mouthfeel is slick, although just a touch thinner than expected. the flavor is a mix of bourbon, oak, molasses, sweet malt, and some chocolate & coffee. Overall, it was very good, but not quite as complex as I was hoping for. Bourbon fans will love it...I liked it a lot, but at the price, even Bourbon County Stout @$5+ for a 12 oz bottle is a better deal. 7/11 - a couple rturn trips to this beer and i upped it a tenth. old vis is a better deal (more beer for less) but i do like this one more."

Bottle. Pours like used motor oil, thick, very little head, no bubbles. Huge Oak, wood, alcohol nose, dark overripe plumb. Strong warm alcohol taste, wood, and roast and brown sugar notes. Very smooth for such a strong beer.

In short: mighty dark ale.
Pours black with some tan head. Poor head retention, some lacing. Wood, sweet, liquor, caramel, nuts aromas. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, viscous texture. Taste is smooth, liquor, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, wood flavours. Really smooth, well balanced and enjoyable.

orangesol (979) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden into a Bell’s tulip.

A - Pours jet black with a small half finger tall java colored head, dissipating down to a thin film, leaving spotty sheets of lacing down the glass.

S - Quite a bit of bourbon up front mixes with some sweet chocolate, vanilla, oak/wood, dark roasted malt, and a bit of booze. Pretty well balanced even with all those flavors competing for the lead.

T - Plenty of chocolaty sweetness up front giving way quickly to a mix of bourbon heat, vanilla, and dark roasted malts. Finish is a bit hot with plenty of lingering sweet roast. Nice balance of base flavors and the woody bourbon from the barrel. Very good stuff.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet, roasty, heat both in the feel and the finish.

D - Pretty high all things considered. I have always liked this beer. The combo of dark stout and bourbon is really nice. The only drawback is the high ABV. as it really does prevent you from enjoying multiple servings.
