look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Big and rich, completely black but in some very dark brown at the thick edges, there's a certain oily texture to this big stout. The head is a brown-colored one about a finger tall. Retention is good, and it manages some good lacing despite the oils.
Coffee! Lots of fresh coffee, just-roasted grounds all in the nose and mouth. It's the forefront, but it lets the stout express itself all the same. There's lots of dark cocoa, and the bourbon barrel makes its way in softly but firmly with notes of vanilla and wood while offering just a little heat. The wood is dry and oaky, not a soft wood by any means. The coffee is just so rich and full, especially in the nose. It's like drinking a shot of espresso while sniffing a cup of fresh grounds right next to it after putting a little of very rich chocolate sauce, fresh made from cocoa beans, while having a snifter of bourbon right next to it.
The body is full, rich and thick, but it evens and lightens out in a surprising way, certainly more than I expect. I also can feel a certain oiliness to the grounds on the tongue. It's a good stout, and plenty rich, but it could be cleaner.

2013 bottle poured into Hoppin' Frog snifter.

Opaque, black elixir, thin mocha rim, swirls of lacing, and legs all day.

Coffee, toffee/caramel, char, earth tones, dark fruits, bourbon.

Bourbon first, coffee all throughout, thick, dark fruits and chocolate. Yum!

Heavy, thick, tasty, coats the mouth.

Wonderful coffee stout, complex, keeps bringing forth enticing, blended flavors that are unique to the style and keep this brew in a class by itself.
