This stout was brewed with coffee and aged in a bourbon barrel. It was available in bottles in limited quantity at the brewpub. The pour produced a substantial head midway between foamy and creamy that remained for the duration of the drink. Lacing proliferated above the lovely brown liquid.
The nose was notably woody with some pleasing roast and chocolate notes. Bourbon fumes rose up to meet the olfactory bulbs during the process of sipping. A very nice treat for the senses.
The taste had just the right amount of woodiness without overpowering the delicious stout nuances. The coffee flavor was mild and utterly delightful. Roasty chocolate notes made a robust bed for the wood and coffee to float upon. This brew was very enjoyable to view and drink.
The mouthfeel was fluffy and supported the taste profile marvelously. It carried a medium body bordering on thick, but just a pinch lighter which made quaffing dangerously easy. Superb.
Overall this was a great bottle. I count myself lucky to have been able to procure a vessel of this. Cheers to Odd Side Ales. This was a nice treat. I am happy to see this brewer having success and making delicious ales for us to enjoy. Another great piece of the great beer state!

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. No freshness date. Bottle courtesy of mjshearer1.
A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of sheer surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.
S- Incredibly chocolaty aroma with a bunch of caramel as well. Smells like chocolate cake. Also some vanilla and burnt sugar.
T- Flavor isn't quite as sweet as the aroma would have you expect. More notes of milk chocolate, caramel and vanilla. The dark roast and light bourbon notes provide a nice balance to the decadent sweetness. Dark chocolate and mild coffee in the aftertaste.
M- Soft and thick with medium-low carbonation and a full body.
O- A wonderful dessert beer. Way more chocolate than coffee but that's all right. So smooth, rich and luscious. Would love to have access to this on a regular basis.
