UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a tan head. Toasted malt aroma. Big full flavors of oak, vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Really nice stout. scooter520 (185) - - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: black with little mocha head. Aroma: big coffee and dark chocolate, mild bourbon, sweet syrup. Taste: coffee and dark chocolate with bourbon and oak coming in middle and sweet and bitter coffee finish. Mouthfeel: slick and thick with low carbonation. Overall: this is pretty awesome with nice bourbon and barrel flavors but not super strong. Great chocolate and coffee 'stoutness'.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2017 22oz bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Cheers, John! Pours a hazy porter brown with a tan head. Nose is bourbon, vanilla, marshmallow, coffee, coconut, and chocolate syrup. Flavor is similar- chocolate, marshmallow, light booze, vanilla, and bourbon. Medium in body and very nice overall. Nice balance of milk stout, coffee, and spirit. Relatively light in body but the finished product is greater than the sum of its parts. faroeviking (10913) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 13, 2012
Botella. Deep dark brown colour, brown small head. Lots of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and roasted malt in the sweet aroma. Good mouthfeel indeed. Lots of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt in the flavour, vanilla too. Quite sweet. Good bitterness.

Bottle split with mdfb79. Thanks Dan.
The beer is near black with a thick beige cap that leaves some decent lacing on the glass.
The aroma brings a heavy dose of coffee, followed by chocolate, vanilla, light booze. I am a regular coffee drinker, and certainly appreciate a nice coffee aroma in an imperial stout.
Nice flavor. Relatively sweet, with a pronounced milk presence. Almost sugary like chocolate milk. As in the aroma, coffee plays a major role, while the bourbon presence is subdued. Vanilla and coffee for the most part. I never found the sweetness to be cloying, and had no trouble with my half of the bomber.
Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Fairly sweet, with prominent coffee throughout. Though the abv isn’t particularly high for a bourbon barrel stout, it is disguised gracefully here.
Overall, I enjoyed this and would definitely have it again. Recommended.
