Appearance: Black body with a tan head, lots of foam and lacing.

Smell: Bourbon, vanilla, cigar boxes, chocolate and coffee.

Taste: Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, bourbon, dark fruits.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and smooooth.

The Verdict: Awesome. It’s not in the league of Firestone’s Sucaba, but it’s right up there in the same neighborhood. Smooth, complex, and delicious.

Big bourbon barrel nose, chocolate, vanilla, coffee
Pours brilliant coffee black under a 2" tan head that dissipates at a moderate rate to a thick film, lacy.
Palate: Wild Turkey, coffee, bourbon, chocolate, vanilla. Long lingering aftertastes.
Very creamy body, medium full, very fine soft carbonation, above average.

Poured from the 22 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip pint.

a: Opaque black with a tro inch tall tan head which receded slowly to thick even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Bourbon.and dark chocolate.

t: Bourbon with chocolate notes, followed by a smoky dark malt finish which lingers at first. Becomes more bourbon dominated later.

m: Rather light for a stout and considering its dense black visual.

o At first not quite as bourbon dominated as the aroma and initial taste suggested. Easy drinking. The light mouthfeel at first distracts a bit from the drinking experience, but the persistent bourbon flavor grows more enjoyable to the point you don't mind iof the mouthfeel is light.
