Appearance is black with short tan head that fades pretty quick.

Smells of bourbon, chocolate, cherry, coffee, and molasses.

Taste is coffee first and not just coffee but really good coffee, the way they infused the coffee in this is amongst the best coffee beers I have tasted. after the coffee comes the bourbon followed by dark chocolate and molasses with a hint of cherry and dark fruits.

mouthfeel is full and coating the tongue with good carbonation for the style.

overall this beer was fantastic. my father-in-law brought this over and I decided to pull out a KBS and put this side by side. This beer was hands down the winner, this beer is under rated in my opinion. I hope I can get some more of this in the future.

Bomber poured into Stone snifter.

Great look upon first poor. Jet black with some caramel head and lacing that sticks around for a little while. Aroma is coffee/chocolate dominant with some roastiness, a little vanilla as well but i cannot pick up any bourbon. Taste is quite delicious - there is some dark chocolate bitterness and 70 IBU that is quite well masked but present towards the aftertaste. Great beer but I think the regular bourbon barrel aged version might be better. This release leans more towards the dessert beer and the chocolate and coffee seem to overpower the quality of the original brew.
