look: 3 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Date: 25 February 2011
Glass: Sierra Nevada XXX snifter
Type: 12fl oz bottle
Poured at 50 deg F and poured aggressively, 1-finger head, pours like black oil, head is caramel-colored, lacing is runny, carbonation is light.
Aroma is delightful and roasty. Aromas of bittersweet chocolate, iced coffee, black molasses and raisins, all wrapped up in a blanket of heavy dry oak. My gosh, further smelling brings out much more oak... this is a lovely oak beer. Bourbon is ever so light on the nose, but increases and pairs well with the chocolate as the beers descends the glass. Towards the end of the glass, aroma of chocolate-covered strawberries comes out, or at least that part of my brain is triggered.
And onto the taste! Taste is extremely chewy, with molasses, dark chocolate, raisins, sweet bourbon, and light-roasted coffee. Heavy molasses and chocolate linger between tastes, and bitterness is difficult to gauge when surrounded by such heavy flavors. Booze is completely hidden.
I don't want to write anymore. It is time to sit back and sip this with my eyes closed. Cheers!

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.
