4.51/5 rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Pours one shade shy of black with no head. Nose expresses bourbon, chocolate, ethanol, some coconut notes and a hint of vanilla. Taste is reminiscent of a Mounds bar - malty and chocolatey. Mouthfeel is medium in body with an even carbonation and a mild ethanol burn. Overall, I don't know how this beer was fresh, but it's tasting great. Probably one of my all-time favorites to date.

Appearance - Rich motor oil with a very thin dark caramel head. little to no lacing
Smell - BOURBON, lots of vanilla, cocoa, roasted malts, but no coconut
Taste - WOW is all I can say. This one is amazing. HUGE bourbon up front quickly followed by vanilla, chocolate, and sweetness. Then an amazing coconut finish. Simply perfect
Mouthfeel - how is a beer this big this smooth?!?
Overall - I am so happy I got to try this on tap. One of the best beers I have ever had hands down. Just amazing.

Here's a brew that has lived up to the hype surrounding it.
A - Pitch black and looks very thick. Thin head that doesn't hang around and lots of boozy legs on the glass. Really decadent looking beer.
S - Smells like dessert. Lots of coffee, big chocolate, oak, vanilla, and then the coconut. I know some people said they didn't get a lot of the coconut flavor, but our bottle was really nice.
T - Starts off like regular bourbon county. Lots of smooth oak, vanilla, and chocolate. Once the aftertaste kicks in and the beer warms up a little is when the coconut really comes in. Very sweet, but not overly sugary. Really enjoyable and the longer the bottle was open the better it tasted.
M - Very smooth and very heavy body. Slight alcohol burn but that's exactly what I'm looking for in a 14% brew.
O - If you can find it, get it. I split it with a friend to offset the high price. Really good variation to the Bourbon County line-up.
