Bottled 2/8/10

Pours a thin pitch black with a quickly receding small beige head. Smells of bourbon and booze dominate as much of the coffee has long faded. First taste is heaven – with bourbon and dark chocolate and a big splash of strong coffee all blending to make one of the finest beers ever. Thin bodied but well carbonated. The excellent carbonation makes up for the thin body to combine for an overall great mouthfeel. The 11.3% ABV is well hidden. What a great beer!

Pours just like the rest of the Breakfast stout family. pitch black with a caramel head and minimal head.

Smells of bourbon and coffee. Oak and more oak. The past 9 months have left the oak and wood smells nicely.

Tastes like a BA Stout, plus coffee. The coffee is more muted than in FBS and CBS, but is replaced wholly by bourbon. Notes of vanilla are a welcome addition.

Full body, but not as thick as CBS. Leaves a chewy feeling that I really like.
