Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a very attractive light brown head and a treacle and alcohol aroma. There is a chocolate, coffee, treacle and dark fruity flavor with and oak finish and a bourbon trail. Very complex.

750 c&c from timfoolery. Thanks guy! Pours black with a creamy/foamy tan head. Aroma is quite bourbon, oaky, dark fruity, treacle, chocolate. Med + body. Flavor is very nice chocolate/cacao, bourbon, vanilla, wood/oak. Finish is towards, but not reaching, dry with lots and lots of flavor. Fantastic beer.

Pours a black brown from the bottle with no real head or lacing. Aroma of vanilla from the oak and booze. Taste was sweet bourbon barrel aged goodness, dark but thin. I suppose for a bba malt liquor this was pretty solid.

2011. Very smooth palate, reminiscent of CCB 110k+OT, batch 2. Aroma is a bit soy saucy. Pretty hoppy still. Carafa special + burnt toast.

February 2012. Rated from my backlog. 750 ml. corked bottle. Poured black with a tan head. The added oak is not over done as you can experience in so many similar beers. This one is a keeper.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black with very minimal tan head and thin lacing. Bourbonesque nose with roasted caramel and chocolate malt aromas. Flavours are smooth with a medium body and light carbonation. Bourbon was less pronounced in the taste and the chocolate/dark fruit flavours more noticeable. Pretty tasty.

Good stout. Did not get a whole lot of bourbon, more like a standard imperial stout. A little thin on the body.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. One of my favorites. Huge bourbon, chocolate and roasted malt notes. Bottle ages really well. Heat drops a lot after about a year.

From a bottle. Very dark brown. Light tan foamy head. Smells lime dates, plums, figs. Tastes very sweet, like dates.
