Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours black with some brown at the edges with three plus fingers of fluffy light brown head. Head leaves a good amount of sticky lacing as it slowly dissipated.

Big bourbon barrel notes, vanilla, cinnamon, oak, toffee, chocolate, coffee. The bourbon aromas are the strongest though.

Taste follows the nose, bourbon flavors leading, vanilla, oak, toffee, cinnamon, melding with the bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee flavors of the stout. More bourbon warmth in the finish.

Full body with minimal carbonation. A good amount of alcohol warmth in the throat after a sip, but otherwise easy to drink.
