12oz bottle into a snifter. Pours jet black with a thin tan head. A decent sized ring is left around the edge of the glass on top of the beer. Coffee is very prominent on the aroma with a lot of roast and caramel along with a healthy dose of chocolate which surprised me a little bit. A somewhat subdued vanilla not but I cant really detect much bourbon. Nonetheless a very inviting aroma. The flavor has lots of coffee and caramel up front but not in as strong of dose as is present in the aroma. Almost no bourbon at all but rather vanilla, chocolate and caramel. All of the flavors are a little bit thin but they work well together. Roast and char lingers long after the other flavors have cleared up. Mouthfeel is quite thin for the style with a light bitterness and a lingering stickiness. Overall, a good coffee stout but not on par with Founders Breakfast Stout and roughly the same price. If this becomes available in TN I will gladly pick it up because of no alternatives. In other parts of the country, however, there are better alternatives.

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 brass avec du caf, et pass en barrel de bourbon avec du caf de Hati .. a cest sur papier!! Niveau abv de 8 %, orge et bl malts. Date illisible, mais assez rcente. Couleur noir profond, lopacit forte. Mousse qui est un nappage fins flocons, de surface, brun moyen. Armes de caf et petit bourbon de contrebande dans un assemblage peu harmonieux, avec du sureau et du melon pas mr. 1re bouche ptillante, au trs faible ensemble, avec des notes de rouille!! Arrire-bouche trs faible. 2me sur le sureau et un caf pass depuis 3 jours. Arrire-bouche sans aucun relief. 3me vraiment navrante, o Mamy a laiss tomb des chalotes dans le caf .. Arrire-bouche o Mamy plonge les mains dedans pour les rcuprer Longueur qui plaque le sureau devant la porte pour permettre Mamy de verser le caf dans un autre pot en fer blanc qui na plus servi depuis 25 ans et qui vient de la remise Papi... juste sous ltagre pleine de clous rouills!! Alcool inoprant: il panique devant la tche dmesure et demande pardon genoux Finale o je dis Mamy quelle devrait de temps en temps remplacer la vaisselle, parce que a commence faire un peu farfouille .. pour tre gentil. CONCLUSION: un titre et une tiquette bien allchante, mais on sarrte pratiquement l Ks aco ken tucky? Tucky ken aco ks ...

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.

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. Wouldnt pay for this.
