Bottle from last April, tastes older than that. Deep brown black .. Mild foam .. Eats like air, light cocoa some mild barrel .. . Not very interesting.. . . Toast for breakfast, how ducks by original dfinney23 (3394) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2017
Taste leans a little too much toward stale coffee plus I’m not picking up much in the way of bourbon or barrel. Beerdedone (3432) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla and light coffee. Flavor was roasty and thin with coffee, chocolate, vanilla, light caramel and no bourbon. chinchill (5175) - South Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2017
22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours with a dark brown body, nearly black, and limited carbonation. The thin head is soon gone leaving just a ring, but spotty lacing is left on the glass nonetheless. Appealing but simple aroma of medium and dark roasted grains with no sign of the bourbon barrel aging. This is evident in the flavor, however, which is also stronger and more smoky than the aroma suggests. Faint oak and subtle bourbon notes.
Medium-full body with light carbonation. wlajwl (6950) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 18, 2017
Aroma is coffee, dark fruit and mild bourbon. The flavor is dark malts, coffee, dark fruit, chocolate and an acidic/bourbon finish. Actually a barrel aged stout not pushed too far.

Looks good. Dark brown with smooth tan head. Smells good enough...kinda generic but pleasant booze vanilla cocoa.
Doesn’t warm up well, though, and body and flavor are weak from the get go. Thin with a slightly off putting finish. jandd1983 (4446) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of vanilla, cinnamon and a touch of whiskey. The taste was similar to the aroma with more vanilla, cinnamon, smoke and whiskey. Not bad. nuplastikk (6373) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2017
22oz bomber. Opaque black body. Quite mellow for the style. Smooth brown malt. Full bodied, but not much depth. No hop depth. OK. Bland. Minimal, mild, oily tones. Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2017
22oz bottle from Beer Run. Aromas of vanilla, caramel, chocolate cake. Black with a fairly lasting beige head. Lightly sweet, chocolate vanilla swirl, roasty, dried cherries. Full bodied. JaBier (8132) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear reddish brown with a thick beige head. Aroma of malt, booze and dark fruit. Malty and chocolatey flavor with caramel and slight booze before a nutty finish.
