Bottled 3/26/10, first bottle release for this beer, never had one yet and I'm super stoked to finally try this!

A: The only way you could tell this beer apart from motor oil by looking at it is because of the espresso colored head that is slightly left around the glass. This beer looks menacing in a glass!

S: My favorite part about the smell is how strong it is! A lot of stouts don't have a strong lingering smell, but this one constantly smells like it does when your first poured it. Initial smell you get this strong, but perfectly balanced blend of espresso and bourbon. Then chocolate comes in along with some booze, vanilla, and caramel. This beer smells fantastic!

T: This is an espresso bomb! Loads of espresso blended with milk and dark chocolates, some vanilla, booze, bourbon, and slight hints of caramel and toasted coconut. The espresso is superbly balanced with all the other sweet flavors that it doesn't make this beer overly sweet. All the flavors compliment each other superbly, this beer is the real deal and I can see why it gets all this hype!

M: This is probably one of the craziest mouth feels for a stout I've ever had. It is thick and sticky like syrup, but the espresso quickly dries your mouth leaving more of a dry finish than a cloyingly sweet and sticky mouthfeel. The best part about it though is you get a wonderful espresso, chocolate, coconut taste that lingers for awhile and it is awesome!

O: I can see why this beer is rated at number 2, absolutely amazing beer, you have to try this one!

2013 12oz bottle

A - pours a nice thick, black as night, liquid into a snifter with a very thin head. Dark, luscious, opaque and no lacing.

S - dark chocolate, figs, raisins and rich caramel. Some glimpses of bourbon and faint coffee as well. All great scents for this stout.

T - smooth as silk as it goes down with heavy dark chocolate, toffee, caramel and hints of malts. Not much coffee taste which was a bit disappointing. But the other favors make up for that just a bit.

M - silky smooth with light carbonation.

O - a great stout. I miss the coffee notes however. Still damn good!
