look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

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.
