A really great beer, the coffee harmonizes well with the bourbon character and yet creates something completely different from a KBS or BCBS, has a weirdly "light" character by comparison, I dont even know. Thanks Colin.

Garrold (4756) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle. Batch 1. By way of a trade with Leighton. Cheers! Nearly black. Creamy, lasting, dense, tan head. Nose has quality chocolate. Soft liquorice. Rich, sweet cake fruits. Beautifully sweet, oaky, vanilla bourbon. Some steeped cherry. Any coffee notes have long gone, but thats fine by me. This is stunning. Taste is sweet, chocolatey, and woody. Soft charred bitterness. Mouthfeel cant be bettered. Rich and soft, while never feeling the ABV. Fudge, chocolate, and sweet bourbon on the finish. Wow.

ThirstyBird (2755) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2017
500ml bottle pours a near pitch black color with a tan head. The smell is dark roasted malt, molasses, coffee, bourbon. The taste is molasses, dark roasted malt, coffee and bourbon ending roasty, rich and dry. Wow!Full bodied with fine carbonation.

Bottle shared thanks to Patrick. Pours an oily black with a small mocha head. This is wild. Amazing decadent bourbon, vanilla, oak, chocolate cake, creamy milk chocolate, smooth coffee. So good, so smooth. Perfect balance.

beerplace (1228) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2017
500ml bottle (thx, Frederic!) at Alexs. Pours a very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is bourbon, boozy, dark fruits, chocolate. Same taste. Impressive!

P.S. Blend of GoM and M&C7 is even better than the beers alone! Wow!

Sergeys hunt; bottled 01.07.2016
Dark brown color, almost no head. Big phenolic aroma, plays well with the dark malts. Smooth, luscious chocolate flavor, moderately sweet, with big alcohol presence, but not too boozy, and some hints of tobacco, liquorice.
Excellent.

Sudz4Dayz (94) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2016
500ml bottled thanks to Julien. Pours an oily black with a dark mocha brown head leaving some substantial lacing. Long lasting with foamy bubbles. Smells of sweet bourbon. Nice spicey cinnamon to it as well. Smooth vanilla and sweet finish. Tastes very smooth. Bourbon sweet heat right away with a nice cinnamon heat at the end. This comes with some roast and a woodsy finish. The mouthfeel is perfect. Smooth and heavy. Standard HF. Love it. All in all this beer is something else. Amazing

Mr_Abner (356) - Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle (batch 1). Pours thick and black with only a minimal, fluffy, mocha head ringing the glass. Bourbon aromas most prominent, some chocolate. Moderate sweetness up front overtaken quickly with a building, medium+ bitterness that lasts. Flavors of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and roasted malts. Full bodied, slick and creamy. Slightly undercarbonated. Finish is lightly dry.

Lubiere (13271) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
A deep dark stout with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with light coffee notes, grassy hops, light bourbon barrel notes, woody notes, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity chocolate malt with light vanilla cake, oily mouth feel, coffee, dark fruits, molasses, alcohol warmth, very nice. Bottle at Big Matts Eclipse tasting.
