From 02/01/14 notes. Bought a bottle of this at The Jeffrey in NYC. Poured into a tulip-type glass. Love the normal version, been really wanting to try this one.
a - Pours a dark brown, almost black color, with two inches of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks great.
s - Smells of bourbon, sweet chocolate, roasted malts, oak, caramel malts, dark chocolate, toasted malts, and light toffee. Awesome nose; lots of swete bourbon and chocolate up front. Love it.
t - Tastes of bourbon, sweet milk chocolate, roasted malts, toasted malts, coconut, oak, burnt malts, light dark chocolate, cream, light coffee, and caramel malts. A slight step up from the nose; really great.
m - Medium to full body and moderate carbonation; body is somewhat thick. The tiniest bit of heat but not bad at all. Awesome.
o - Overall I thought this was a fantastic beer; I love the normal version and this is probably a little bit better. The bourbon is fantastic with this beer and it doesn't dominate it too much, though it is there up front. Top notch, hope I can pick up bottles of this sometime.

Thick tar like pour, this jet black stout oozed into the snifter. The head was a thick brown pillow of dense foam that left curtains of lacing.
The nose is full and rich with vanilla, coconut, lots of coconut, chocolate, caramel malt, oak, bourbon cream and some dark fruit.
The flavor is luscious creamy chocolate, coconut, vanilla, a mid palate of yet more chocolate and a fudge like finish. Throughout, there's a subtle bourbon creaminess that is never intrusive but simply amplifies the flavors.
The feel is thick, smooth and velvety; masking any and all alcohols yet never being too sweet.
Double Barrel Hunahpu and King Henry are the only two that may beat this out otherwise this is the new Gold Standard.
