750 ml bottle, batch 1 bottle 1132/1344. Pours dark brown black with a small brown head that quickly goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is rich bakers chocolate, grains, vanilla and some bourbon. More alcohol comes out as it warms.

The flavor is sweet rich chocolate and vanilla with a lot of pretty harsh bitter alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, good and flavorful especially for Coors but too sweet and alcoholic.

Bottle #1128/1344. Thanks to appetiteforparis for the share.

This pours out luscious and thick with a fudge-colored head that dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, Whiskey, brown sugar, molasses. Served cold the predominant flavor is coffee with some chocolate and then a big whiskey barrel finish. The personality of this beer emerges as it warms: the coffee is joined by flavors of vanilla, coconut (as the label promised), raisins, liquorice and the oakiness of the barrel. The mouthfeel is right on for the style; bracing yet completely drinkable. Overall an impossibly good beer from the people who brought you Coors Light.

Poured from odd sized bottle into new Belgium globe.
A- Pours a dark brown, almost black, dark brown head with a touch of red hue and ruby highlights held to the light.
S- Sweet chocolate, bitter chocolate, some oak and cedar, earthy and musty.
T- Follows the nose. Somehow I expected more. Roasty malts, bourbon, wood, earth with a lingering bittersweet aftertaste. This sounds weird but it reminds me of eating chocolate bars in a damp wooden casket in a shallow grave. Yeah.
M- Thin, doesn't feel like a stout at all.
O- not impressed. For the price and being from a giant brewery I expected something along the lines of Bourbon county...
