Poured into a tulip from a 750ml bottle.

Pours an amazing thick viscous black liquid with a nice quarter inch tan head. The head is nice and dense but recedes pretty quickly down to a nice thick ring around the glass.
awesome

The aroma is delicious. Starts off with notes of coconut amazing coconut that is balanced by some oily/buttery notes of bakers chocolate and then amazing notes of bourbon. The bourbon notes are amazing.

The taste is also amazing. Sweet coconut notes mixed with chocolate, slight coffee roast and an amazing blend of bourbon barrels. The caramel and molasses sweetness from the barrels are amazing. Notes of heat and grain with slight vanilla as well. The coconut notes are extremely complimentary with the barrels. THe mouthfeel is a bit light but its still good.

Review #800 -- 348 bottles produced courtesy of TW&CP and perennial
The beer pours an inky black with a razor thin tan halo of head that leaves a sheen of oily tan bubbles on the inside of the glass while drinking. The nose is a gust of potent caramel sweetness, reminiscent of freshly baked cookies, with a subtle coconut and booze. The taste is rich and chocolatey with a slow transition into an astringent, coconut-bourbon bite. The body is medium-heavy with a rounded, bourbon-caramel sweetness, subtle coconut, not much lactose, but is astringent/boozy with tannic bitterness and a semi-dry finish. I'd hoped this beer would have a bigger body and be a bit smoother, but it's more spicy and biting by comparison to the other perennial stouts. This beer is definitely big and flavorful with great bourbon characteristics and less coconut than expected.

Taste: Rich coconut begins the drink, followed by luscious chocolate. A whiskey punch asserts itself in the middle. After, you're left with sweet roast and caramel over the remnants of coconut that overpowered the beginning of the beer. After the latter three elements of the end fade out, you're left with a finish that is quite dry. This drinks a bit hot, but is saved by the fact that it's so damned delicious

Served side by side out of snifters with Proprietors.

This beer is fantastic as the name states.. put up side by side with a Proprietors and i believe the taste trumps the Prop. Taste of coconut and chocolate with an amazing barrel flavor. I did not find the FV to be hot at all. The mix of the two barrels (blantons and knob creek) do something amazing with this beer. The mouth feel is not as good as prop but that was expected.

Overall i think this beer is better in the Taste category than prop. The barrel flavors are still stuck in my mind! This beer is going to age awesome!
