On tap at RB. Very dark black pour with a dark brown head. Nose is big bourbon, choco-malt, roasty, woody. Flavor is more of the same with some coffee notes thrown in the mix. A little thinner bodied than anticipated. Still a tasty brew that I’d have again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap at the brewpub. dark black with a thick nitro head. booze whiskey nose with some chocolate. bourbon flavor transferred to the beer cleanly, not a lot of bitterness, some light smoke and a creamy cocoa flavor. after finishing the first half of the glass this gets to feeling solky in my mouth, the bourbon becomes more apparent and this starts to finish with more caramel. not a bad beer, especially when it warms a bit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Rock Bottom Denver. Dark brown to near black. Nose is bourbon, vanilla, roasty malts and oak. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, light molasses, chocolate and roasted malts. Not unlike the ChopHouse versions to which I’m accustomed. Body is a bit too light but is creamy and smooth. Ends with more bourbon notes, vanilla, roasted malts and chocolate. Nice!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Brewpub. Chocolate/light bourbon and oak aroma. Flat black with a pinky thin mocha head that is fairly lasting. Smooth and silky milk chocolate accented fore. The bourbon aging has thinned it which seems to happen to many of these beers, but it’s still decently thick if thinner than a better sweet stout. The bourbon is a mild component yet the flavor lingers well into the finish and mixes with the oak to creat a coconut like flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Jet black pour w/ a small thick nitro looking but non nitro head w/ nice lacing. Palate is fairly thin and somewhat coated. Aroma is mostly bourbon w/ some roast malt notes pretty 1 dimensional. Flavor is dominated by bourbon tastes like bourbon & a weak sweet stout mixed 50/50. Some dry woods and roast malts come through as well.
Over bourboned and not very good.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A deep red-brown beer with a small brown head. The aroma is sweet spicy, while the flavor is sweet with primary notes of raisins leading to a dry roasted end. I can’t make out the Bourbon.
