From the moment I poured this into a glass, I was excited waiting to taste it. It poured a deep dark color as I always hope for in a stout. The nose was coffee all the way, but with some good amount of chocolate in there.
I could have put my nose into the glass all night long, since it was so appealing.
The taste was big, very big. The coffee was upfront, and there was a definite amount of carbonation, The taste had a semi-burn feel from the alcohol, but that was not over powering.
The finish was exceptionally balance. In fact, I think I enjoyed the finish on this beer more than actual tasting it from the start

Nice pour, pitch black, small tan head.
Smells mostly of Bourbon and dark malts, some dark fruit, a small veggie note, and the fresh coffee isn't as strong as i expected.
That changes in the taste. Starts quite acidic with strong coffee and boozy raisin. Mellows down a bit after the initial sip, coffee gets roastier, some sweet spices, vanilla and nice barrel notes show up, clearer rich dark chocolate. Very clear Bourbon on the palate, packing a bit too much booze, but that's explainable (14.3 abv). Strong coffee in, strong coffee out in the aftertaste, with a touch of roasted malts and dark fruit.
Perfect for a sipper, especially because the booze doesn't seem to mellow down too fast.
Big on the coffee and barrel notes, it didn't quite live up to its huge hype. A monster RIS anyway, no need to be biased here.
