Poured from a 12oz bottle into my new belgium glass. A thin head covers the brew made of a dark brown mocha color. It dissipates quickly to a thin ring around the edges. The body is an extremelty dark brown to black color, completely impenetrable by light.
The scent is a perfect combination of dark chocolate, coffee, and bourbon. They mix into a great concoction which drives you into the flavor quite will.
The flavor follows right from the nose, it starts off with a roasted malt coffee flavor in the beginning. That fades into a bittersweet chocolate taste which lingers on the tongue as the bourbon fades into the picture. It finishes with the barrell aged vanilla bourobn combination with stays with you for a while.
The mouthfell is everything I love out of a stout, its thick, silky smooth, and just all around delicious. The bourbon taste starts to come out even more as it heats up, amazing beer if you can get your hands on it it's a must have.

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.
