Very dark brown, almost black beer. Aroma of coffee, sweet alcohol, chocolate/mocca. Starts sweet, but good bitter and sweet balance in the backtaste. Sweet coffee, some liquorice and loads of mocca. Verry smooth, verry good.

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

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.

JBPortland (923) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 24, 2014
On tap at the brewery, pours dark rich black brown with small tan head. Nose is rich creamy chocolate, latte, milky coffee, balanced dark bourbony fruit. Taste has great silky cream mouthfeel, well integrated mocha coffee and tasty fruity bourbon spice and touches of oaky vanilla. Finish is chocolate milk, coffee, vanilla, light bourbon. Pretty impressive.

solidfunk (4477) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Quite a lot of coffee here and subtly done barrel - the way barrel should be done. Aromas come together well, but this doesn’t quite taste as big as an imperial stout should be. A regular stout or foreign stout at the most. Lacks complexity. Pours dark brown/black with good head and lacing. Medium bitter finish. Tap at Churchkey.
