Pours a sludgy black with some brown highlights a dark tan head that fades quickly.
Smells of bourbon, wood, sweetness, chocolate, slightly oxidized sherry notes. Big pleasing, boozy nose.
Taste is up front bourbon with malt richness, chocolate that goes into a boozy middle with hints of coffee and alcohol sweetness before finishing on a bourbon, vanilla, and wood note. Some lingering notes of chocolate; the coffee is buried deep under the bourbon and wood.
Full body and low carbonation works well. Alcohol is very present.
A bourbon, booze forward sipper of a stout. The chocolate and coffee come out as the beer warms, and it evolves constantly as you drink it. A nice bourbon barrel-aged stout, though, a bit too bourbon heavy for me...will be happy to age a few and see how they end up.

Enjoyed on tap from a snifter at Plan B in Simsbury, CT. I didn't want to go right out with all 5s for this review, but truthfully could find nothing to critique that wasn't on-par and expected in the style. It poured black as pitch with a cocoa-colored head. The nose is complex with coffee and vanilla notes right up front preparing my palate for deliciousness. And delicious it was, with all the roasted coffee at first, followed by the sweetness from the bourbon-barrel aging and malts. An outstanding stout, worthy of 100 rating.
