On tap at Whole Foods in Market Square, Fairfax, VA. Opaque, brown-black with a thin tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, milk chocolate, roasted coffee, licorice, bourbon and oak. Taste of bourbon, roasted coffee, chocolate, licorice, roasted malt and vanilla. Nicely balance complex blend of dark flavors. A little heavy on the bourbon, but it still give the other flavors room to shine. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Thanks! A: Black body with a foamy mocha head N: Huge cocoa and milk chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Caramel and oak. Crunchy brown sugar and char. Bourbon is well-integrated. T: Very sweet, very little bitterness, not cloying. M: Medium heavy body, almost crunchy, alcohol is well-hidden, creamy carbonation. O: Powerful coffee/sweet stout. Bourbon gets added rather than taking over, and I would drink this yearly.
