UPDATED: MAR 11, 2018 On tap at Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is coffee, brownies, vanilla extract. Taste is coffee, vanilla, brownies, bourbon. Enjoyed the coffee notes but the vanilla seemed a little too artificial and overpowering. czlowiekmotyka (649) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 8, 2018
Well it is not a big discovery but it is a coffee lovers beer. I kinda like this addition to a regular BCBS. Less barrel but it is replaced by the glorious beans. MaltoseChalice13 (23) - Somerset, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2018
One of my favorite BA Coffee stouts. Previous years are stellar compared to recent. Like drinking a creamy coffee frappe. Yum! Oakes (19681) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2018
Dark brown. This has a pretty vegetal aroma...that's not like Black Cat...but there's some nice chocolate and a touch of the barrel. Soft, sweet, with light chocolate notes, and a hint of coffee. beerplace (2410) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2018

On tap at Macgregor's. Pours jet black, with very little tan head. Aroma is amazing: rich dark coffee, malts, and dark fruits. Taste is complex, lots of coffee on top of an excellent bourbon barrel aged imperial stout. The alcohol kick is there in the background.

2013 bottle, served after Thanksgiving dinner. It is no surprise that this has a very strong Kahlua coffee liqueur smell. But in fact, the nose is just a little more roasty. And the nice bourbon smell is very dominant. Taste is very thick with bourbon, but also with a dark roast sensation of both stout and coffee. We are all feeling every bit of its 13% or so, abv. My relatives who are just getting into craft beer were very pleased with this one; that is, the ones who were willing to try the coffee stout after I had served them the regular 2013 BCBS.
