Tan head quickly dissipates to lacey; Slight nose of sweet bourbon; Hue very dark brown with just a bit of orange-brown translucence; Velvet mouthfeel with a very slight bourbon note, slight oak and caramel malt taste with a tiny hint of coffee; malt is just a bit roasted; Quick finish with just a hint of coffee. This beer would score higher as a Porter than a Stout. If you advertize coffee and barrel aging in your beer, those tastes should dominate. Not so with this beer.

Not bad, hard to coax a head, a little thin given 8% to work with. Light chocolate, caramel, vanilla, overall mild. I was impressed by the long finish.

Stout brassé avec du café, et passé en barrel de bourbon avec du café de Haïti .. ça c’est sur papier !! Niveau abv de 8 %, orge et blé maltés. Date illisible, mais assez récente. Couleur noir profond, à l’opacité forte. Mousse qui est un nappage à fins flocons, de surface, brun moyen. Arômes de café et petit bourbon de contrebande dans un assemblage peu harmonieux, avec du sureau et du melon pas mûr. 1ère bouche pétillante, au très faible ensemble, avec des notes de rouille !! Arrière-bouche très faible. 2ème sur le sureau et un café passé depuis 3 jours. Arrière-bouche sans aucun relief. 3ème vraiment navrante, où Mamy a laissé tombé des échalotes dans le café .. Arrière-bouche où Mamy plonge les mains dedans pour les récupérer … Longueur qui plaque le sureau devant la porte pour permettre à Mamy de verser le café dans un autre pot en fer blanc qui n’a plus servi depuis 25 ans et qui vient de la remise à Papi... juste sous l’étagère pleine de clous rouillés !! Alcool inopérant : il panique devant la tâche démesurée et demande pardon à genoux … Finale où je dis à Mamy qu’elle devrait de temps en temps remplacer la vaisselle, parce que ça commence à faire un peu farfouille .. pour être gentil. CONCLUSION : un titre et une étiquette bien alléchante, mais on s’arrête pratiquement là … Kés aco ken tucky ? Tucky ken aco kés ...

Pours dark brown, fairly red, small dark head. Aroma is bold and sweet - roasty, chocolatey, big vanilla and maple presence. Taste is a bit thinner than expected, but still rather tasty. Vanilla and maple seem to be the predominant flavours - mocha finish, not especially oaky. Mouthfeel is fairly sticky for a stout. Nothing special, but worth trying.

bottled - super dark in color - black. Flavor is slightly sweet with some coffee. Sweet stout aroma.

Pours typical dark stout but with a minimal head. On the nose rather one dimensional malt, coffee, molasses, barnyard, soy and some bourbon or wood notes. One dimensional because I really had to search for this. On the palate an effervescent, attenuated presence with a smooth but very short finish. Wouldn’t pay for this.

ElCapitan22 (363) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Pours a jet black color and has no real lacing or head retention. The aroma is strong of dark chocolate and it drinks very smoothly. There is no harsh aftertaste, and also leaves a nice coffee flavor. The biggest problem with this is that there is really no bourbon flavor at all. None on the nose, nor in the taste. Shame....
