Bottle @ Perennial during RBSG. Black appearance with a nice brown head. Some roasty coffee and earthy notes in the nose but not super overwhelming. Lots of rich dark chocolate, vanilla, and caramel in the nose. A bit of toffee in the flavor to go with more dark chocolate, moderate roast, and light whiskey. Super smooth and fucking delicious. One of the best coffee stouts I’ve ever had. HeadyDE (899) - Delaware, USA - JUN 4, 2014
draft at resurrection for CCB/Perennial event..the highlight of the event for me..black as night pour with a creamy ecru head with medium carbonated bubbles resting atop..nose is oh so enjoyable and easily one that will be remembered for a while..aroma is singing quality coffee..real vanilla..not some cheap artificial crap..bourbon goodness is on the sidelines...almost a buttery toffee taste profile here..really enjoyable stuff here and a very memorable coffee laden imperial stout..reminiscent of bourbon county coffee stout with a little less alcohol legs in play and a creamier mouthfeel. excellent stuff and makes one want more of these limited supply perennial offerings in these parts well east of the Mississippi...very worth seeking out and up there with the better barrel aged imperial stouts... koleminer20 (4374) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2014
750 mL bottle. Thanks Eric and Haley! The pour is a light black with a dark dark mocha head that fades right down to a ring leaving minimal lace. The aroma is beautiful. The coffee absolutely dominates. There is a good roasty licorice note with a strong bourbon and vanilla presence. The flavor is much of the same. There is a beautiful roasty licorice vanilla incredibleness. The booziness is incredibly well hidden. The mouth feel is perfect with a beautiful carbonation and such a great aftertaste.

750, thanks shay. Black pour. Unfortunately I had a BCS coffee before this. It is almost as good. But not quite. Not much nose at first but al lot of sweet coffee once it warmed up. Taste is bourbon and coffee. pretty similar to bourbon county coffee. Pretty damn good. But I’ll still say it’s the second best bourbon coffee stout.

Draft. Dark black with a thin brown head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malt sweetness with a touch of alcohol. Full body with a lingering alcoholic sweetness. Very tasty.

Bottle... This beer rocks!... Tar black pour with a mid-sized, cappuccino head that’s gone in a flash. The olfactory standouts are Cuban-roast ground coffee and dark chocolate – deep, dark mocha with a dab of jalapeno pepper. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and restrained carbonation. The flavor is burnt and bittersweet chocolate and black malts balanced by big-time, deeply roasted, acrid, coffee beans. Finishes burnt, acrid and tangy. Thanks so much, landhoney, for providing yet another bottle of world class beer! MadRobin (2989) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2014
On tap at Quarry House Tavern in Silver Spring, MD.
Opaque, black-brown with a large tan head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and bourbon.
Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, fudge, coffee, vanilla, oak and molasses.
Very full body and medium/low carbonization.

This is top notch. Booze is not tasted. What is tasted is a wonderful mix of coffee and cocoa. I think this is world class. Advocate_Ames (636) - Steubenville, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Pours jet black with a dark brown dissipating head, leaving a weak rim of foam that hugged my glass. The aroma is of a balance between boozy sweet bourbon, lightly roasted coffee, and vanilla. There is minor scents of sweet carmel malts, cocoa, and subtle oak notes. In the flavor I tasted rich sugary malts, toffee, bitter cocoa, medium to heavy booze, bitter espresso, and a subtle fruit like flavor. The finish was sweet, full of defined booze, and it had a moderately lingering bitterness. Overall a nicely done bourbon and coffee stout. Dfonorow (2358) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is black with a small tan head. Aroma is standard for an imperial stout - roasted malts, chocolate, sugar, ash, and coffee. Flavor is much heavier on the coffee with some cocoa and spice in the background. Coffee-forward, coffee-backward, coffee-everything.
