2014 into a Stone IRS glass.
A - Pitch black with some head and a little foam and lacing. I honestly have no clue how to judge the appearance of a good RIS. They're black, they all have a little bit of foam. I'll give it the obligatory and completely arbitrary 4.5.
S - Coffee, chocolate, and a little vanilla. Don't get the barrel's bourbon in the nose.
T - Taste follows the nose with a little oak and woodiness from the barrel. This tastes really good, but it has Kentucky in the name and I'm not getting any bourbon taste or alcohol.
M - Terrific silky smooth feel on the tongue with a super pleasant chocolate milk finish. No thin or tingly alcohol here.
O - This is a great beer, but I think a little bourbon flavor would make it even better. I remember more bourbon from the times I've had it before, but who knows if my beer memory is reliable. Honestly if "kentucky" wasn't in the name I'd probably be blown away by how good of a coffee stout this is, but since "kentucky" is in the name I think it's missing a little something.
