Can't say enough about this beer. Had it on tap at Thirsty Moose in Maine. $13 for a 12 ounce pour. I am a huge barrel aged fan and this ranks number one on my list. I have a bottle of the coffee stout by Bourbon County and have yet to try it so I can not speak to that.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

From the 12 fl. oz bottle. 2013 batch. Sampled on July 7, 2014.

Jet black pour and completely opaque. Modest tan head that dissolves.

The Bourbon barrels are pungent in the aroma along with a sweet milk chocolate aroma. There are also some dark fruit notes and a noted yeast character.

Full body that is chewy thick.

The chocolate and modest bitterness really take the lead in the taste with the bourbon warming my entire inside. This beer gets a lot of 5 out of 5's and the only reason I didn't rate it that way is because the boozy nose is just a hit too much for me.But one cannot argue that this is one the best beers on the market that is reasonably accessible to many craft beer lovers like myself.
