Jet black pour with a thin espresso head that faded very quickly. Aroma has a fair amount of chocolate and a hint of oak. Medium bodied. Taste has lots of chocolate character and a hint of coffee, vanilla & oak. Lingering bourbon notes on the finish. Pretty sweet overall. Slightly boozy as well. No lace present. alexsdad06 (11224) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2017

The flavor starts with the chocolate backbone. Coffee is more noticeable in the aroma as opposed what I am tasting. The palate/ mouthfeel is medium plus. A good amount of bourbon, to include the bourbon heat.
Poured from bottle thanks AirforceHops nice cola black color with a thin cocoa head. Aromas of coffee vanilla chocolate malt oatmeal and bourbon. The taste follows aroma chocolate coffee vanilla and alot of bourbon. Let this sit a while more. WillRunForBeer (2803) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2017

Bomber, 2016 vintage. Coffee aroma with notes of chocolate, whiskey, vanilla and oak. Pours dark brown with a thin mocha brown head that has poor retention and lacing. Starts with sweet chocolate and vanilla flavors with a rich full body and slick mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with coffee and whiskey with a little bit of oak as well as a bit of boozy warmth. Excellent bourbon stout. ajnepple (7344) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2016
22 oz bottle with white wax (2016, release no. 4), on sale at Mr. B’s Wine & Spirits for $16.99. Thick, black appearance, with a small, mostly diminishing brown head. Aroma of coffee, oak, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, roasted and light caramel malt. Similar flavor, adding medium to heavy sweetness and mild bitterness. Medium to full body with a slick, creamy feel, a little syrupy, with soft carbonation and a smooth finish. Nice, a little on the sweet side overall, but probably my favorite CKB beer.
