Thanks to mrbubbler/GRG1313 for sharing this one at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.

Batch 1. Bottle # 476/1344.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, cookie dough, and whiskey. Taste is much the same with a cocoa flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty and woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a nice barrel aged presence in the aromas and flavors.

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?

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.

Awkward shaped bottle went bang upon opening..

Two-finger milk chocolate colored soapy head. Brew is relatively thin and no lacing..

Liquid bourbon comes to mind. Vanilla, milk chocolate, oaky.

Whoa. Unique. Medium-thin viscosity, carbonation is light-medium, tons of bourbon vanilla, flavor is spot on, no heat and I can tell is this one strong brew...

Recommended, but @ $24??? ehh.. Maybe. Thanks Chris for the push across the finish line.

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.
