Look: Pours with thick, large, mocha head. Slow to medium retention speed, stickier big bubbles break down - they mostly form lacing. Leaves a thick but solid layer, good amount of lacing through. Dark, dark brown, no living light can penetrate it.
Smell: Cacao, fat, full, stuffy as fuck. Milk chocolate with very well represented bourbon oak are the dominant notes. Salty, mineral, burned soy sauce, but good incorporation into roasted, chocolate heavy malt. Light alcohol to detect.
Taste: Salty, medium intense molasses start. Also very light acidity that does it good. It continues into mostly milk chocolate with some roast and burned caramel medium-heavy sweetness. But this gets quickly dominated with medium to heavy honey bourbon oak with a noticeable alcohol spike and ends with medium to heavy coffee, cappuccino bitterness. Late in the after some coconut notes star to flow around. The taste is a lot less stuffy than the nose.
Mouthfeel: Full, medium heavy body, solid, creamy with some alcohol warming.
Overall: As it's none barreled base, it’s quite a beer. A fat one, full of darker malt wonders, but this time with a very strong bourbon presence, maybe a bit too much for my taste. It's a demanding beer, but well worth your time.

330 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 2/7/2013.
Appearance - Black with a hint of transparency. Small off-white head. Medium collar.
Smell - Lots of intense roasted malt. Slightly fruity. Some whiskey, but not all that intense.
Taste - More whiskey in the flavor. A little nutty. Not much barrel character, just some bourbon liquor. Finishes with a lingering oak flavor.
Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated, but not too badly. Boozy. Medium heavy.
Overall - My palate is shot at this point, but it's still really tasty.

Thanks to Jeffo for the bottle!
Deep brown, ring of tanh head with some spots of lace. Smell is a mix of big roast and chocolate, bourbon, oak, coffee as well as a bit of bitterness. Taste is chocolate fudge and oak, light vanilla, roast malt and bourbon, finishes a bit bitter with a roasty-chocolate aftertaste. Light-medium carbonation, medium bodied. This was also really good, I liked it better than 666 but less than Misto, still a very good stout and would certainly have this again.
