A great dark brown appearance with mocha colored head poured from the tap. Had a great chocolate/vanilla aroma with hints of caramel and mocha. Very slight bourbon taste which takes a backseat to the dominant vanilla/chocolate flavors. Very smooth and palatable. Incedibly drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

4.91/5  rDev +18%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours black, not Ten Fidy black but close, half finger of Mocha head.

Smell is big mocha, cocoa, vanilla, roasted malt, oak, bourbon, roasted coffee.

Taste is vanilla, cocoa, oak, bourbon, bitter espresso, dark chocolates, light earthy bitterness and a wee bit of roasted notes. WOW, was not expecting such a huge flavor for 7.5!

Mouthfeel medium full, silky and mouth coating. Light carbonation, just the way a stout should be.

Wow I do not know what people are complaining about in the mouthfeel... I thought it was crazy full for 7.5%, sometimes you have to remember every beer is not going to have the mouthfeel of BCBS.

Amazing beer here. Better or equal to the likes of Blacknote, BCBS, KBS and CW Barrel Stouts.

I am very Impressed.

Been eagerly awaiting this release. High hopes for this one. Poured from a room temp bottle into an imperial pint.

A: Dark chocolate brown nearing black. Nice two fingers of tan head. Thick coating of lace. Great retention and a hefty cap.

S: Pure dark chocolate is the dominant character. Smooth black coffee and a touch of smoke. The bourbon is subtle but I can pick it out. Not much vanilla though.

T: Holy crap! The flavor is spectacular. Rich chocolate fudge cake with coffee icing. There's the bourbon and vanilla. So smooth and rich. The bourbon adds just another layer without feeling boozy at all. No heat at all. Curious what the ABV is. It feels on the low side.

M: Maybe a touch thinner than most Double Stouts but sometimes it's nice to not feel like I'm downing a glass of syrup. Low carbonation but it's present.

D: Overall possibly the easiest drinking Double Stout I've ever had. I'm down to my last sip and I'm going to have to go crack another one. Tyranena didn't quite top their Imperial Chocolate Porter but this one comes close. Seek this out.

4.65/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Deep dark cocoa brown, close to black. Khaki colored head with moderate carbonation. Nice lacing.

Smells of coffee and earthy cocoa. Whiffs of burnt toast, dark baking chocolate and roasted malt.

The taste is fantastio with no bitterness at all. Sweet dark chocolates, toffee, vanilla and coconut. Warming sensation with the bourbon barrel aging but no abv sting. Subtle hints of coffee as it warms.

Creamy oatmeal-like mouthfeel. Very, very drinkable. I quite enjoyed this. Hope to acquire more.

Much thanks to Hendrick24!

Appearance: Pours dark and viscous looking with no head to speak of, minus a collar of off-white head.

Smell: Richest of the rich coffee roast, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, dark fruit...it smells like a fancy Starbucks(thought please understand, I loathe to mention the place) iced coffee, made with expensive, rich coffee.

Taste: Rich chocolate, vanilla and coffee roast say "whaazuuupp???" Middle shows a Bourbon emergence with bitter roast and some caramel. The end is a nice fade of rich coffee, distant caramel and bitter chocolate. The vanilla beans add a nice, noticeable extra vanilla dimension that sets this beer a bit above the rest.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied for sure, though not in the realm of Huna or BCBS...but there's no shame in that. For this abv and the style, this feel is just right. This beer is quite crushable.

Overall: I'm thinking crazy things about this beer, like it's better than FBS or even KBS...I wouldn't concretely come to that conclusion without a side by side, but I must drop this simple fact...this beer is nothing short of AWESOME!

12 oz bottle poured into my arcadia tulip.

Picked this beauty up at binny's the other day. 10 bucks for a 4 pack. :D

Pours a deep black with hints of maroon on the edges. Very thin head, deep tan/cocoa color. Decent head retention.

The smell is out of this world. Loaded with chocolate and vanilla. Easily one of the best smelling beers I have personally ever had.

Taste. Wow. Bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and oak all make their presence known. The bourbon is not hot or very up front, but is noticeable in a good way. Tons of chocolate fills my mouth with every sip. The vanilla overpowers the chocolate, but I am a fan of that, so hooray! Drinking it now, when it gets towards room temp the vanilla character in the aroma and taste come through more.

Very thin for a double stout. Wish this one was a bit thicker.

Easy drinker. I am a big stout fan, and this one does not dissapoint. Going back to pick up another 4 pack soon.

4.51/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Released 2013. Poured into snifter glass.

Appearance: Black as motor oil. Looked like sludge while pouring. Small film of brown head built up but dissipated quickly.

Smell: picked up hazelnuts, vanilla, chocolate, and oak.

Taste: It is sweet and with plenty of heat the entire sip. Not overwhelming but the heat is not shy. Tasted plenty of hazelnuts, oak, and some vanilla. Bourbon becomes more prominent and it gets sweeter as it warms up.

Mouthfeel: a medium bodied mouthfeel. Smooth and silky.

Overall: it's a fantastic stout coming from Wisconsin! Glad to have this.

Pours into my glass a deep dark black with a solid half inch of creamy tan head on top. Sticky lacing around the top of the glass. Aromas are a bold mix of rich cocoa, vanilla and deep roasted malts. The chocolate is just great here. Woody oak with just the perfect touch of bourbon. Really lovely aroma.

First sip brings smooth dark roasted malts upfront swimming in rich cocoa flavors. Vanilla makes itself known along with a touch of coffee. The oak notes hit on the way down along with a well integrated bourbon flavor. Well balanced and very tasty.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth and creamy. Goes down easy and extremely tasty. This is one of my favorite Brewers Gone Wild beers and I'm hoping to see it brewed again someday! Cheers to Tyranena!

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance-Jet black in color, totally opaque. Thin brown head with some lacing and fair retention.

Aroma-Wow, kick ass. Complex aroma of roasted malt (coffee, chocolate, and slightly burnt) play in the background of the huge chocolate aroma from the cocoa nibs. Also prominent is a sour-oaky aroma and a light vanilla note. Hops are absent. This smells delicious.

Flavor-This beer is pure dessert. Smooth and complex flavor profile of dark chocolate, vanilla bean, oak, and bourbon is supported by undertones of coffee and roast. Some alcohol shows through in the finish, but is pleasant, and not hot. Sour tang present in the nose is much lighter in the flavor.

Mouthfeel-Full body, though not quite chewy. Moderate carbonation. Moderate alcohol warmth. Silky smooth.

This beer is pretty phenomenal. I don't think I could drink a ton, but its definitely delicious. This would go great with a ton of different desserts, but would also work quite well as a dessert on its own. Fantastic.
