Once the bottle is opened the boozy aroma is noticed. Oil like appearance when poured. Head dissipates quickly leaving lacing around the rim. Slight chocolate and bourbon taste with a hint of coconut flavor. Very boozy taste, easy to drink. It is worth a shot to try, but there are better examples of a bourbon stout out there.
2013 brewmaster reserve. Poured pitch black with a short lived dark brown head that dissipated to a tenacious slick sheen. The aroma is pungent and offers the odd combination of sauteed mushrooms, vanilla, and raw honey. The mouthfeel is a bit better, rich but not thick. The taste has a mild bourbon flavor among slight coffee notes and more honey. Overall a very balanced, however unremarkable stout. Homer321 (5248) - Melboring, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Draft. Nose is a huge booze nose. Dark black pour medium brown head. Taste is mostly booze. Very tropical and fruity with the booze. Like a BA foreign stoot. Good PapaSkeetSkeet (1011) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Dark-chocolate color with ruby glints at edges. Light-brown, yellowish head. Aroma is dark-roast coffee, bark, bourbon, vanilla, some BBQ sauce. Medium body with moderate but distinct and coarse carbonation. Saturated, dry feel. Flavor is dark, burnt toast, some dark woody coffee, slightly medicinal (in a sappy, Earthy way). Vanilla/bourbon is more subdued here. Herbal hops. A roasty, affordable bourbon-barrel stout, not over-the-top with the bourbon, but slight medicinal notes are a detractor.

Dont sleep on Full Sail. It may be easy to get but damn is it tasty. Tons or rich cocoa, bourbon, brownies, vanilla, and rich nutty malts. Taste is moderately sweet with a nice balancing boozyness from the bourbon. Well done! Why did I used to trade for BBA Imp stouts when beers like this rot on the shelves. That was so 2012 of me.

terrible label, great beer. ok, this was brownie batter good. Love it, good thick bosy and good caramel molasses flavors without being cloying. Dedollewaitor (16543) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2014

22 oz Bomber. Tasted on 10/11/14. Beer from Total Wine Dallas, TX. Beer pours to a black rich color with a strong note of bourbon. The bourbon is a little overwhelming to me & isn't as balanced as I would like in a bourbon stout. I will cellar this one for a year or two and see how it is then.
