12 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with practically no head what-so-ever, except for a thin halo of caramel-colored foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Very aromatic! Lots of roasted malt, imparting notes of coffee, dark chocolate, dark molasses, brown sugar, some oatmeal, vanilla, a touch of licorice and smoke, some aromas of dried fruit, such as raising, prunes and figs, and woody notes of oak. There’s quite a bit of booze in the aroma as well.

Taste: Delicious! Strong flavors of roasted malt, followed by some boozy bourbon flavors of oak, vanilla and molasses. There are also strong flavors of dark chocolate, licorice, brown sugar-like sweetness, toffee, coffee and creamer and caramel.

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smooth as hell, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 12%, there is a very pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Wow! What a beer! Absolutely delicious! Strong flavors of stout blended beautifully with bourbon and oak. Spectacular!

To me, like fresh Bourbon County Stout. Very good, would recommend.

2013 bottle. Very low carbonation but still enough not to ruin the beer. Still very enjoyable.
