Pours black with quickly dissipating head. Aroma is dominated by bourbon. Taste starts with a strong alcohol punch, with a beautiful aftertaste thats a mouthful of coffee chocolate and bourbon. Medium mouthfeel and a decent carb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Westmeister (1764) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with an off white head. Smell is malty and roasty expresso with some popping sweetness. Taste is vanilla, bourbon, sweet milk chocolate/cocoa, bold expresso, faint oak. Coffee really holds up to the bourbon. Really nice.

22oz bottle, shared by Andrew. $9 from Beer Run. Wow, big chocolate milk nose. Black color, thin lighter brown head. Nice wood flavor, light bourbon, very nice. Bittersweet taste. Very smooth and silky mouthfeel. Light carbonation, medium / bigger body. Great coffee and light bourbon combo. Delicious, but impressively balanced beer.

Bottle. Appearance: black with little mocha head. Aroma: big coffee and dark chocolate, mild bourbon, sweet syrup. Taste: coffee and dark chocolate with bourbon and oak coming in middle and sweet and bitter coffee finish. Mouthfeel: slick and thick with low carbonation. Overall: this is pretty awesome with nice bourbon and barrel flavors but not super strong. Great chocolate and coffee 'stoutness'. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle split with mdfb79. Thanks Dan. The beer is near black with a thick beige cap that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. The aroma brings a heavy dose of coffee, followed by chocolate, vanilla, light booze. I am a regular coffee drinker, and certainly appreciate a nice coffee aroma in an imperial stout. Nice flavor. Relatively sweet, with a pronounced milk presence. Almost sugary like chocolate milk. As in the aroma, coffee plays a major role, while the bourbon presence is subdued. Vanilla and coffee for the most part. I never found the sweetness to be cloying, and had no trouble with my half of the bomber. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Fairly sweet, with prominent coffee throughout. Though the abv isn’t particularly high for a bourbon barrel stout, it is disguised gracefully here. Overall, I enjoyed this and would definitely have it again. Recommended. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-18-2012
