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.

Sarlacc83 (1084) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 25, 2014
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.

Bomber from drake - thanks Dan! Pours dark brown with a brown head leaving some lacing. Aroma has vanilla-y bourbon up front, with roasty coffee and caramel poking through. Later a touch of fruit as well as licorice and some lacticity. Yum. Taste is of sweet bourbon, heavy roasty coffee beans, sweet caramel malt, some bitter chocolate, and a touch of earth with sugary lactose. 8 Medium bodied with some alcohol. Finishes sweetly bourbon-y with bitter coffee and the touch of chocolate, in a great blend. Maybe the best combination of bourbon coffee, with that light chocolate mixed in, that I’ve had to date. (ok, beyond BCBS Coffee) There was just too much sugary lactose or it would be wonderful. 15.2

22 oz bomber into a snifter. The pour is a thick viscous and black with a dark brown head and no lace to be found. The aroma is big on coffee. There is a great vanilla and bourbon character to it, which I just love! There is a little licorice and some great booze heat. The flavor is wonderful. Coffee, vanilla, cocoa, licorice, bourbon. Very well balanced and smooth. The mouth feel is a touch thin, but there bus a great carbonation and velvety texture. The aftertaste is smooth coffee with a great coffee and vanilla addition. I'm a big fan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebone1988 (281) - Wyoming, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Aroma is bourbon barrel, cocoa, vanilla, oatmeal, milk. Appearance is black, thick, not much head. Taste is great, chocolate, bourbon barrel, vanilla combined perfectly, then the flavor disappears for some reason, then a great coffee aftertaste. Mouthfeel is great, but thin, oily, good carbonation, flavor lingers. Overall, this is really really good.

Pour from a bottle is a nice dark chocolate bottle with a light brown head. Aroma is a nice blend of bourbon and coffee. Taste is a little sweet with a nice bitterness at the end. Goes down smooth.
