On tap at Taco Mac. Pours deep walnut with mocha head which dissipated fairly quickly. There is little lacing. Malty Roma with the sweetness of bourbon (but actually fairly subtle) along with oak and cherries. Taste is sweet with the bourbon flavor more pronounced than in the aroma, yet not overwhelming. Oak and dark fruit permeate as well. Full bodied with an oily, slick mouthfeel and low carbo. Overall, really nice beer - bourbon barrel aged, but the bourbon only plays a supporting role here - although becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Abv of 13 percent is well hidden, but warms you up!

Pours a dark rich brown, but not black like some imperial stouts. Head also goes down somewhat quickly for a stout after initially presenting as a mocha/caramel head. However, the head continues to build from the bottom impressively so doesn’t entirely disappear. Aroma of cherries, licorice and dark, rich fruits. Maybe a bit of molasses in the aroma as well. Smooth, rich chocolate in the mouth with just a hint of bitterness. You can taste a bit of alcohol in this beer, but it is 13% after all. I really can’t get over how velvety this beer feels in the mouth. And the aftertaste is probably better than the taste while drinking, which is a plus with a beer this strong. You can enjoy each sip for quite a while. Good beer.

2016 edition. Pours motor-oil thick with tan head that lasts a long time. Appearance as viscous as you like. On the nose: milk chocolate, berries, dark chocolate, oak, pecans, a little booze, nutty, wheat, cream of rice cereal, tanned leather, banana, cloves, bubblegum, Malt-O-Meal, heavy whipping cream. Taste: Chocolate malt, nuts, a little bit of booze, salted caramel, bourbon, saltwater taffy, sweet dark cherries, dark chocolate, espresso coffee beans, sourdough bread, butter. Finishes clean and leaves you wanting another, though the 13 percent ABV would implore you to reconsider. Overall, a beautifully outstanding beer.

Pours standard black with a very thin dark brown head... absolutely no lacing or cap. Boozy mash-up of bourbon, light roast malts for a RIS, interesting nutty and dry toffee component.. toasted marshmallow.. bittersweet chocolate with warmth and something that I associate with cinnamon. There are soooo many different flavors/adjuncts that are in this fresh.. It actually works even given the heavy ABV... Will it work better with age? I have no idea... but I am amazed how well it drinks fresh.

Pitch black, oily smooth. Chocolate, pecan. The first alcohol hit is monumental but otherwise goes down smooth. Long dark chocolate and coffee finish.

midnight black color and 13% ABV impressed upon me that this was going to be a monster of a stout but it took me by pleasant surprise with a velvety texture that is medium bodied instead of chewy. The foam disappeared quickly, which seemed a bit contrary to style but nonetheless an incredible balance of flavors of nuttiness, chocolate, coffee, caramel and a bit woody that hide the 13% very well.

Rating #1873 - 2015.07.29 - Bottle.Aroma is pecan pie, vanilla, cocoa, espresso. Palate is a sweet mix of alcohol warmth, chocolate sauce, coffee, and earth. Fantastic.

A raspberry like aroma. Maybe its a wine barrel. I get maybe a wiff of wood. Body is dark and tan. Body is thick. Flavor is very sweet and alcohol flavored. Too strong, not roasty enough. Not good.
