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

A - Pours black with tints of red. Tan foamy white head that disipates quickly.

S - Bourbon, chocolate, and vanilla. Very pleasant.

T - Sweet vanilla to start followed by bitter chocolate. Nice flavor of bourbon in he finish. Nice amount of heat from the alcohol.

M - Thick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Very smooth and creamy.

O - Very nice easy to find bourbon stout. Good sipper for the older months.

12oz 2012 vintage bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Dark brown with a two-finger tan head
S: Loads of milk chocolate, a bit of caramel, coffee and bread
T: Chocolate, some cream, again a bit of caramel/coffee- intense up front but lacks a significant finish
M: Medium-bodied, creamy, a touch hot
O: Solid but I don't get how obsessed I've heard some are over this

My review will be misleading perhaps, because I don't like bourbon. And this is a Bourbon Barrel Stout! But in spite of that, I'm going to do my very first review here after a year or so of reading all of everyone else. Mouthfeel is nice and thick but to me, which I love. But that 10% ABV is right up front - as is a bit of that bourbon barrel flavor. Everything about the rest of this beer stands behind that. Not that I don't like my hefty ABV - just I think you have to like bourbon, or at least be warm to it, to really enjoy this one. Still glad I bought it. (Probably the 10% ABV that caused me to write my first review! LOL!)
