This one came jet black with no head whatsoever. Nice coffee and chocolate notes on the nose, as well as a nice hint of bourbon.
The taste of this beer is much aligned with imperial stouts like Stone's and Rogue's. There isn't a ton of "java"ness to the beer, it is just a big black huge stout.
The mouthfeel on this is amazingly thick, chewy, and tasty. I also noticed the way that the flavor sunk down into the pits of the mouth.
Overall, a great big stout - but lacking in the java department for me. I'd have this again, however, its ABV and flavor mesh perfectly for a winter beer.
