Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man! Pour is pitch black with a small brown head and decent lacing. Green peppers, coffee, dark chocolate, wood, a touch of vanilla, and graham crackers. Taste is big dark chocolate, oak, coffee, bourbon, a touch of spicy peppers, and roast with a toasty bitter finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really tasty stout. arminjewell (9687) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2013

Opaque dark brown beer. Short lived tan head. Smooth silky palate, has some body. Smooth rich coffee, not bitter or roasty. Creamy and tangy this is smooth all the way. Very drinkable.
On tap at the first night of "43 hours of dark" at the Birch. Pours opaque black with a small brown head and decent lacing. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts, with notes of whiskey and something a bit musty. Flavor is the same, medium sweet with a strong coffee presence and not much bitterness. Medium body with a dry clean finish. Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Bourbon nose, woody, with coffee, soy, cherries, and subtle cocoa notes. Black with bronze highlights, and small tan head. Light sweetness, with chocolate, sweet bourbon, and coffee flavors. Palate is full and creamy, with almost no carbonation, and has a long finish with off-dry, roasted coffee and chocolate flavors. conway (2210) - - JAN 3, 2013
Pours black with quickly dissipating head. Aroma is dominated by bourbon. Taste starts with a strong alcohol punch, with a beautiful aftertaste thats a mouthful of coffee chocolate and bourbon. Medium mouthfeel and a decent carb.

2012 bottle. Pours near black with a slight tan head. Nice light sweet vanilla bourbon aroma. Taste is very bourbon forward. Lots of vanilla, oak, booze. A great, warming sipper. Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with an off white head. Smell is malty and roasty expresso with some popping sweetness. Taste is vanilla, bourbon, sweet milk chocolate/cocoa, bold expresso, faint oak. Coffee really holds up to the bourbon. Really nice.
