On tap (!) at the Beer Hall/Lava Lounge in Waterloo, Iowa. They also claimed, inexplicably, to have a keg of Prairie's Bomb! in the back, but I wasn't able to use my massive beer sway to get them to tap it.
Pours dark. Yep.
Smells dark and boozy. Lots of chocolate, coffee, bourbon and cologne. More burny than anything, and while it packs a mighty and enjoyable wallop there's no real defining trait that sets it apart from the approximately 35,000 other high ABV barrel-aged stouts that have recently flooded the market.
Tastes, very near the same. A nicely intense rush of several degrees of blackness. But, again, nothing you can really hang your hat on. It's still very enjoyable and very competently brewed, though.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
