3.1/5  rDev -24.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: dark mahogany almost black but shows brown by the edges. almost no head but a small tannish lacing on the sides

Smell: lots of super sweet chocolate, some bourbon. not to complex

Taste: opens with a strong chocolate that transitions into a bourbon. as it warms lots of astringent alcohol comes through

Mouthfeel: pretty light, not much heat or strength

Overall: not too impressed with this one. not too much character in it and doesn't develop as you drink as I look for in these types of beers.

Serving type: on-tap

Drank a corked bottle that was labeled best by June 2014

Smell: very sweet. Slight oak barrel in the nose. No coffee or chocolate

Taste: very sweet also. Can get some hints of chocolate then the dreaded green apple. Tart aftertaste. No bourbon, No coffee (expected as long as this has been cellared), no vanilla or any barrel taste. Goes sweet mild chocolate straight to tart green apple

Mouth feel. Meh. Not very thick, but not thin. Just ok

Overall: If I didn't know this was supposed to be a chocolate, coffee, bourbon barrel stout, I'd drink it again. The green apple tartness wasn't horrible. Added a little comexity....BUT, it's supposed to be Bourbon chocolate coffee stout. Honestly, I was drinking to get drunk. The Blackhawks lost and I needed a higher abv beer and this was in the fridge. It did it's job, but fell short on expectations

Very solid Bourbon aged stout. Bourbon presence not too overpowering as I have encountered in many BB aged brews. Alcohol present on the back end of this one but appreciated in this style. Blue Mountain very impressive VA brewery; try some if you get the opportunity.

Serving type: on-tap
