I have been told about this beer for a while now. So i picked one up the otehr day.
At first look: I like the over feel (look) of the bottle. Really trys to sell you on the things that make KY popular in the sprits/brew world.
At first smell: the bourbon is the first thing that jumps out at you; in fact you get a hint of roasted malt...then wham...bourbon. and that stays on the nose mixing with the other notes....but not letting them all breathe and have there own space.
At first taste:
The pour was midnight. No a drop of light made it thru this brew. The head appeared and just as fast run away. From the first sip you start to believe the labeling. bourbon...light coffee...roasted malty notes...quick hit of more bourbon. The feel was a little watery (more then I exp'd)....but the flavor is round with all the notes playing at the same time leaving you to pick them apart....all with a light coating of bourbon....NICE....I can see what the fuss is about...would spoil you if it was your main brew; but a beautiful treat (even if its not one on your wallet..lol). Top ten list worthy for sure....

A - Pours more of a mahogany/reddish color than i expected. Although very dark brown in my glass. So so lacing, meh retention and pretty weak lacing. Looks slightly thin
S - Sweet chocolate and roasted coffee. Actually smells fantastic but something about it is again telling me its too thin. Quite minerally smelling as well.
T - Lots of sweet chocolate and vanilla followed by nice bourbony flavors. Minerally, slight sweet alcoholy dark fruit flavor
M - Lighter bodied for the style, really my only knock on this - still smooth
O - Quite, tasty. I'd call this a very good gateway bourbon barrel aged stout
