12oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and hints of coffee, light bourbon and oak and floral hops. Flavor the same. Smooth texture. A pretty good 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.

ElCapitan22 (360) - 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....

ChadPolenz (1761) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 33B Specialty Wood-Aged Beer (base style: 20B American Stout)

AROMA: Familiar stout aroma of dark malt, red fruit and slight chocolate. No roasted malt nor coffee. Slight tang. Mild nose overall. 6/12

APPEARANCE: Extremely dark brown to black proper; nearly opaque. Small, brown suds fizzle away quickly. No lacing. 1/3

FLAVOR: Mild palette of dark malt with generic, nondescript sweetness. No distinct roasted malt flavor whatsoever. Some firm dry bitterness at the apex of the swig followed by a short coffee flavor and some alcohol warmth. No chocolate or vanilla notes. Bourbon barrel character is virtually undetectable. 9/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; low carbonation. Feels tepid and dull in the mouth. Texture is smooth and 8% alcohol presence is subtle. Slightly dry, bitter aftertaste but otherwise clean. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Fails as both a bourbon barrel brew and a coffee stout. Entirely too mild and insipid. 4/10

TOTAL SCORE: 23/50

Bottle from Liquor Barn, poured into a pint glass. Watery for a stout, opaque black with a trace of beige head. Has roasted malt nose with a touch of bourbon. Flavor is consistent with the nose, though the alcohol notes in the taste is more harsh than bourbon-like. Unpleasant malt finish.
