Pours dark and thick from the bottle. Taste is full of coffee but light on the bourbon finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Little thin, definitely lacking in the bourbon department. Great prune finish, nice coffee flavor. Surprising long lasting on the pallet.

Bomber shared by ontbeermaker. Black with a tan head. Maple, vanilla and coffee aroma. The flavour is similar. The body is a little thin for an impy stout. Good but not my fav. Fun to try.

Very good beer, although I would have preferred it a bit more bourbon forward. Tasted alongside coffee BCS and a KBS, so that may have affected my score.

Bottle from trade with Ken. Thanks! Pours black with a half finger creamy mocha head. Aroma of bourbon, earthy coffee, chocolate, oak...a bit heavy on the sharp bourbon smell. Flavor is roast up front, a little sweet lactose, with a straight bourbon finish. Not much coffee to taste. There isn't much else going on here. Velvety smooth with medium carbonation, and medium bodied. Overall I am psyched I got to try this, but these lighter stouts and porters just can't stand up to the bourbon. I can't get into this one. Meh.

Opaque molasses-colored beer with a thin foamy root beer head. Amazingly complex nose of coffee, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, oak, and hazel nuts. The aroma is fantastic! Flavor is not quite as profound, although it is good. It’s got a rich coffee bitterness up front followed by deep vanilla, burgundy wine, wood, and a little smoke. The aroma while sipping greatly enhances the experience. Excellent beer, worth it for the smell alone.

65cl, no mention of ABV, as AleWerks Café Royale, new exclusive American brew Anno 2010, with coffee, thx to Secret Santa!, complex Stout, roasted/sweet and slightly vinous/spicy, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, very good brew, yet expensive!

Keg @ Beer Run. Deep brown with a small tan head. Initially a bit of hot baked apple and cinnamon on the nose. Caramel, sweet German chocolate cake. Rum raisin. A nicely complimentary set of aromas. The taste is initially strongly of bourbon but is then balanced out by the supple coffee. More chocolate cake, vanilla, roast coffee beans. Mellow sweet finish. Really nice.

Bottle to glass. Pitch black color with a solid brown head. Intense aroma with roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Awesome chocolatey sweetness and coffee bitter in the flavor. Medium body and very drinkable with a nice lingering chocolate in the finish. Fantastic!
