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

A - Pours pitch black with a thin dark tan head. Body seemed thick but not much lacing.

S - Bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar and expresso.

T - Bitter dark chocolate mixed in with black expresso. Some licorice then vanilla. Bourbon barreling seems a bit overwhelming but calms down.

M - Full bodied, viscous and low carbonation. Can seem a bit cloying on the flavor.

O - It's a mess, but a good mess. Maybe time will do it good but until then it's still enjoyable now.

Alcohol, bourbon, and hints of chocolate and coffee greet the nose. It pours brilliant dark brown under a 1” very finely bubbled tan head that dissipates to a thick film. The palate mirrors the nose with bittersweet chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and alcohol. Its surprisingly dry for such a big beer and finishes with some bitter chocolate astringency. Very rich and creamy, full bodied to chewy with a pleasing alcohol warmth. This is a good beer but the chocolate and the coffee are almost too dry and intense. It might be more drinkable if it were dialed back just a hair but on the other hand, I do like it.

Apparently this is a bourbon barrel aged coffee stout.

Little head. Jet black. Little carbonation. Anise nose. Thin mouthfeel for the style. It's a coffee stout but all you can taste is the bourbon barrel treatment. Very very hot. Could probably use some time in the cellar.

Good beer. Not a great beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance: Very dark and nearly opaque. Some slight ruby highlights around the edges when held to light. For an 11.5%'er, impressive mocha head and messy lacing.
smell: Wow, rich fudge and espresso. Not particularly complex, but deeply rich and pleasing.
taste: A bit thinner than the nose. Much of the same flavors of the nose initially, a little watered down, then a bitter-sweet finish.
mouthfeel: A little thin for an imp stout.
overall: Nicely done. Alcohol is well hidden. Tasty dessert or aperitif.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Bottleneck says Bottled on 03/13/13.

A- Pours an ominously opaque black color with an 1/8 inch light brown head that barely retains before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and some light, wispy surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Heavy dark roast aroma with some solid coffee and oak aromas. Slightly sweet, chocolaty and has a slight nutty quality.

T- More dark roast with some more subtle oak flavors plus chocolate, coffee and vanilla in the aftertaste. Very smooth with the high ABV being hardly noticeable. Ends up being a bit on the sweet side which is fine.

M- Thick and slightly syrupy. Medium-low carbonation with an extremely full body.

O- I gotta hand it to Brash, their extreme beers are pretty impressive with the exception of their Cold Ass Honky Saison.

Poured form a 650 ml bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Black. Pours about a half finger, ruby brown, foamy head. Dissipates quickly leaving only a small collection of bubbles and a beer ring. Substantial lacing.

S: Roasted espresso, dark chocolate, black licorice, vodka, almond, and molasses.

T: Bitter unsweetened chocolate with charred espresso. Heavy presence of licorice and pecan shells. A little harsh.

M: Heavy and hearty. High alcohol character, and a bit of an overly bitter finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is strong. Dark hue, cool-looking ruby brown foamy head. Plenty of lacing. Nose is a great combination of coffee, chocolate, licorice, sweet components with something of a pure alcohol thing. Bitter chocolate and coffee. High alcohol feel, I have to assume from the bourbon barrels. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
