Black as night with a tan head which dissipates to nothing. Bourbon barrel and chocolate aroma is rich and inviting. Coffee and cocoa flavors are bittersweet. Very nice finish.

Still thin like the base was, but way smoother, and quite a bit better than I remember that one being. Like I said, light palate, but all the usual suspects are there in the nose and flavor, well integrated, if there maybe is a little less pop to them than some bigger stouts. I dug it.

Luvystypotables (1860) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2017
A great aroma of coffee, and chocolate with notes of smoked malt. Pours a dark black color with lasting tan head. A taste of coffee, bourbon, with an oily feel and a bourbon finish.

22 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has strong notes of chocolate and bourbon. Pretty sweet. Big body and medium carbonation.

bierenjoyer1 (102) - Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Aroma is perfect for this type of stout, chocolate, malt, bourbon, nuts. Pours black with a medium brown foam. The taste is really nice, malt, bourbon, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, some butterscotch. Very nice palate for this beer. This is a really nice beer and very smooth.

Une bouteille date du 06/30/2015. La robe noire montre un col mousseux brun de moyenne envergure. Au nez, le caf terreux est accompagn de notes chocolates, de caramel, bourbon dlicat (intressante touche de la barrique), de guimauves tournes au-dessus dun feu de camp. Le got est plus ou moins riche, malt et caramlis, avec une incidence modre du bourbon, plutt douce et sans grands traits rtis qui font gnralement le style. Jai limpression ici de boire un stout (robuste) et non un imprial stout. Sans amertume noire ni sans traces de houblons. Alcool qui passe inaperu: pas tonnant ce degr assez bas (8.4%). En bouche, le liquide est moyen-mince avec un ptillement bas et une texture la limite crmeuse. La finale se fait sur des notes de caf doux, aromatis par une quelconque essence qui partage certaines molcules avec la vanille et le chocolat aux noisettes.

KyotoLefty (9982) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Bottle Share. Big coffee in the nose, sugar, vanilla, maybe maple syrup, and bourbon. Sweet falvors of vanilla, bourbon, cocoa, cola. Almost flat. A bit too sweet and somewhat 1-dimensionally driven by the additives.
