A: Deep brown to black in the glass, a nice caramel colored head on the top.

S: Bitter chocolate, coffee and oaky bourbon hit right away. Notes of Vanilla, and espresso finish out the smell. Very nice.

T: A little sharpness as the coffee hits your tongue, followed by chocolate and vanilla. The bourbon fades in for a gentle caress of charred oak, spirit, and toasted goodness. A lovely balance of beer and bourbon.

M: Medium to medium thick, carbonation is low but active, slightly drying on the tongue.

O: Overall a very good beer. Wonderful balance with a tendency for sweetness. The bourbon is certainly there, although it is far less present than previous releases by this brewery. And while I appreciate a good bourbon bomb, this kiss of spirit is certainly a welcome experience.

3.08/5  rDev -21.8%

A - Dark chocolate brown with really thin looking body. Medium, milky head comprised of many small bubbles

S - Smells like coffee bender with light coffee, cream, chocolate and light brown ale malt

T - Light coffee and chocolate. Really bitter near the finish from coffee and light oak

M - Really thin body for the style with a slightly astringent finish from the coffee

O - On the downside of the coffee stouts I've had as it tastes like weak coffee mixed with more of a brown ale than a stout. I'd pass on having this one again.

3.3/5  rDev -16.2%

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Small khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Milk chocolate. Coffee. A little bit of bourbon. Vanilla.

Taste - Bourbon up front. A little coffee. Milk chocolate throughout. A little nutty in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. A little creamy.

Overall - Strange that it tastes nothing like the base beer. Weird.

S: Rich breadiness, medium oak, some vanilla. Slight chocolate. More coffee as it warms.

L: Brown-black with a light tan head that dissipates.

T: Medium high bourbon barrel presense right off the bat with medium light coffee-like malt. Low bitterness with a thin bourbon character mixing with a pleasant coffee roastiness in the taste. Finishes semi-sweet with additional coffee roastiness.

M: Medium low bodied, medium low carbonation. Alcohol very well hidden.

I think a lot of people were expecting this to be similar to BCBCS. Its not. The body is definitely on the thin side, but the flavors are pretty solid. Definitely serve this a little warmer to allow the body come up as well as the coffee.
