# 19 Papsoe Blind tasting 21-08-2010. Small light bubbly beige head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma of roasted malt, dried fruit, mild hops, vanilla, mild whiskey, alcohol, coffee, liquorish. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and thick alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavor with good counter bitterness. Lingering coffee, liquorish and a hint of spicy finish. 8/4/8/4/17 =4.1. My #4000 rating. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Bomber shared courtesy of brewengineer. my...dear...god... This is amazing. Jet black pour with long lasting brown pillow of head. After the beautiful beer settles in the glass, the most pleasant aroma of chocolate and coffee begins to pervade the air. Magnificent aroma, on par with a STcremebrule and I don’t think it could be much better. The bourbon notes, while faintly present in the aroma become wonderfully magnified in the flavor, and is not overly done. Fantastic blend of cocoa, milk chocolate, espresso, and a vanilla oakiness. Despite the 13% abv, this beer only verges on the ’boozy’ territory, and rather provides a very strong warming sensation. Huge, massive, chewy full body. Very thick, and silky on the palate. Better than KBS imo. This is absurdly awesome. I must drink this again... tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle, labelled as Bourbon County Grand Coffee Stout, under alias of Black Cat Bourbon County Stout! Bought from Utobeer. Opaque colour, very black with no head at all, slight head during the pour, chocolate brown coloured head, currently black as a cat I should say.
Massie aroma of bourbon. coffee, dark chocolate, wood, oak chips and leather. Taste of dark - extra insane dark - chocolate, roasted malts, cold espresso coffee, oils, vanilla, cream, toffee, some leather and a hint of soy source..
Utterly outstanding beer. Many thanks to Ang for the Goose Island stouts’ tip. World class this is. Dry roast finish which is long.

Draft @ Lazy Boy Saloon, White Plains, NY. Served in a 12 oz glass. A thick, dark black beer with a dark brown head. Coffee, Bailey’s, Yoo-Hoo, Whoppers, brown sugar and vanilla notes. The bourbon flavor kinda overwhelmed the beer. Combining the overwhelming bourbon flavor with the too-thick body made this beer too much for my taste. I gotta give it some points for creativity and originality, but I didn’t have the greatest time drinking this beer.

Bottle at Papsø Blindtasting # 19. Its pitch black with a creamy tan head. The aroma is bourbon, coffee beans, roasted malt, caramel and dark ripe fruit. Lovely! The flavour is roasted malt, bourbon, sweet caramel, vanilla, ripe fruit, chocolate and light notes of coffee. Full bodied. World class beer. Loved it!

Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has strong notes of chocolate, as well as medium notes of alcohol, and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and chocolate. The chocolate gains in strength towards the finish, where also a Bourbon note mixes in. The alcohol leaves a burn on the tongue. Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle. Black body with a small beige head. Slightly peppery coffee dominated nose. Sweet coffee candy flavor to it, creamy with espresso, toffee, vanilla. Finishes boozy but not overly hot. BillKismet (4041) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Black body with not much head. Full sweetened coffee nose with bourbon and toffee. Body replete with cacao nibs, bourbon, and cofee. Incredible full, rich coffee character. Rich and deeply layered body. A big, beefy stout. The coffee and stout roasty richness leaves you completely oblivious and vulnerable to the unbelievable ABV%. Would love to try again.
