look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

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.

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...

drastically overpriced for a moderately better than average stout. inky black on the pour, flatish looking, just a tan film is left on top. very bourbony nose, really intense alcohol and charcoal and vanilla notes, really charred and potent. caramel in the flavor, along with the bourbon right up front. there is, as the bottle advises, a touch of toasted coconut in the middle somewhere to pull the flavors together. burning tobacco vibe to the finish. what is the abv of this? god its potent. almost undrinkably alcoholic when it warms. mellow carbonation could use a boost i think, full body and filling, but still runny rather than syrupy, which makes this feel really strange in the mouth. im left breathing fire from the booze. look, im glad these guys exist, im glad they are moving beyond colorado native into more refined stuff, but you cant charge me 20something bucks for a beer that is so forgettable as this one is. maybe a few years in the cellar would dress it up a bit?
