4.61/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Gorgeous pour with jet black color and not a tone of light seeping on the edge. Stiff thick head was brown in color and did I mention stiff and thick.

The scent was vivid and telling with thick chocolate, fruity coconut, maple syrup, caramel malt, Graham cracker and roast coffee.

The taste followed suit but with bigger and thicker notes. Strong milk chocolate was followed by maple syrup, caramel, toffee, Graham cracker and finally coffee. The bourbon was more an essence as it permeated the feel but enlivened the taste. Oakey tastes held the backdrop and coconut finished it through.

Overall, this is Kentucky's finest beer! Bottle this and ship it nation wide because it's fantastic.

On tap at Pin's.

5.5oz. pour into a Pin's mini-snifter. Solid black pour, with a small dark brown head that settled to a ringlet and head there, leaving dots of lacing and a few oily legs on the glass. Nice aroma of dark roasty malts and sweet fudge, some boozy fumes. The taste was a bit of a let-down after what the nose promised, but it was still good. Dark malts, a fair amount of roast, toasted oak, semi-sweet chocolate, coconut, and a booziness ever present in the background, coming out more as it warmed. Unfortunately the bourbon wasn't too pronounced, and it came off more solvent-like than anything. The body was medium, maybe edging on medium-full, but it felt like the booze thinned it out a bit, keeping it from being a smooth sipper, though it definitely improved after sitting a few minutes at room temp. Overall a solid BA stout, though needing some work. I'd still like to try it again.

On tap at smoke and barrel.

Has a great first impression - dark upon dark with slight lacing. Aroma is very boozy/bourbon with some vanilla oak mixed with roastiness. Smell absolutely delicious/intoxicating. Taste is an explosion of vanilla bourbon milk chocolate sweetness. This is certainly close to BCBS and needs to be bottled in high quantities immediately.
