Appearance: Great leopard spotted lacing with a pitch black color. Head is caramel colored with very nice retention.

Nose: Straight bourbon right away, which fades to coconut, vanilla, toast, and chocolate.

Taste: Some bitterness up front. Light mouthfeel for a stout. Carbonation is well balanced but watered down. Light vanilla, and toffee with a very faint hint of alcohol hotness at the end.

Poured a darker black. This beer smells absolutely delicious. Smells of bourbon and vanilla. You can smell it as soon as you crack the bottle open. I was expecting more in the taste department. It is a smooth beer. Bourbon and vanilla dominate the taste. It almost tastes watered down though. Most Bourbon barrel stouts are over the top and a bomber will knock you off your feet. At first I didn't like this one because it wasn't that. By the end of the bomber though it won me over.
