aroma is bourbon and sugar. flavor is well balanced, some roastiness, light coffee, bourbon, and sugar. this is a very close competitor to BCS but just not there. pours like motor oil with a slight tan head. had out of a 120z bottle. very smooth for 17.1% ABV.

Black color . Nice , beige head. Bourbon, roasted malt , vanilla and hint of coffee in aroma . Perfectly balanced taste which follows the aroma. Sweet, but not too sweet . Boozy but not too boozy . Gently bite of roasted bitterness at the end.

Don’t pick up much of the bourbon in the aroma, but it really comes through in a balanced aesthetic way in the flavor. Everything works here. Not just a strong stout, but an imperial, and you know it. Yet, it’s sooo smooth and almost easy drinking. Hope I can find more locally.

Bottle. The pour is black with a lighter head. The aroma has is a lot of booze, and more on the whiskey side than bourbon. The taste is big and boozy, a good beer to share.
