Not a bad bourbon stout. Has a nice balance of beer and stout leaning more towards beer. Probably one of he better bourbon beers I have had

Lightish brown appearance. Smells of caramel, alcohol and dark fruit. Tastes sweet, though it isn’t overwhelming.

Dark brown pour with an almost non existant ivory head. Aroma of molasses and raisins with a whiff of toffee and chocolate. Flavor of sweet dark fruit, brown sugar and molasses. Medium bodied with a nice creamy carbonation level. Not bad.

Had this one bottled, thanks Slothgar! Clear, dark brownish red pour with a persistent tan head, plum, cherry, sweet malts in the nose; balanced with merlot, raisin, spice, malt. This beer is crazy good.

Pours a clear deep brown, with lots of carbonation and a good 2" head of light tan foam. Spotty lacing. Some bourbon in the aroma - yeah yeah, that’s what I expect.
Taste - hmmm... oak and vanilla and caramel and (surprise ) bourbon. Seriosuly though, I really am surprised at the flavors I taste - apart from the bourbon, that is. I admit I’m not a big bourbon beer fan, but this one really has a lot of other stuff to offer. Almost medium body, almost creamy mouthfeel, Just *that* close to being exceptional.

Reminds me of some of the local bock beers. Just add some roast barley and black patent and you have a dark beer, A dry beer throughout.

Not much flavor here. Very dark colored, thick foamy head. A bit of a dissapointment for a Schwarzbier.
