Poured from a 12 oz. bottle, thanks Andrew. Should be called a coffee stout, lots of coffee taste but very little bourbon. The bourbon came through a little after it warmed up. I don’t typically like coffee stouts but this was smooth and didn’t have the bitter aftertaste.

This was one of my friends so-called "shelf turds" that I ganked from him when he moved so I could rate a beer from KY. Alas, while not total poop, it isn’t too great either. It has a slightly sour typical malty smoky smell of stout and pours the customary black brown with a thin head. The taste is smoke, bitter coffee, some tang, and kinda watery. It is pretty light and drinkable for an 8% abv stout, but that’s about the best thing about it. Glad to tick KY off the beer map, but this one isn’t worth your time really. Good for waiting for Hulu to come back while eating some flatbread so that you can continue Walken Week 2k17.

A beautiful dark color with a brown foam, which drops pretty fast. Aroma of chocolate with alcohol. But chocolate clearly dominates. In taste, in addition to chocolate appears coffee, burnt and slightly bitter. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and watery.

Couleur noire, mousse légère, nez sur le Bourbon. Bourbon bien présent en bouche, mais assez fade et aqueuse. Manque de corps, manque d’alcool. Décevant.

12oz bottle from the now gone Malt Shoppe in Tosa, cellared for 6 months. Very dark brown pour with a tan head leaving some lace. Aroma has caramel, roast, some fruit, chocolate and some vanilla. Taste is of sweet caramel malts, some roast, some red fruits, and a dose of vanilla, if not really bourbon. Quite sweet as the roast isn’t enough to balance. Medium bodied, which feels thin for the components, there is some alcohol presence and the blend is decent. Finishes sweetly with some length. Solid, and nothing offensive. Sweet, where some bitter depth would do wonders. 13.5

flatearthman (60) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2017
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.

3.2
obguthr (6344) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2017
Creosote, bourbon, aroma, subtle hints of fudge. Cola black, thin tan head. Charcoal, raisin, astringent. Medium body, easy carbonation. Little character or depth of flavor.
