I don't love bourbon barrel aged stouts but I drink them here and there. This one is big and bold for sure and quite good. Almost black but not very thick. The most prominent character is very dark bitter chocolate. The coffee is also very dark and roasty, almost burnt. Basically no carbonation but I guess that's ok. Nice for once a year. yb

Def one of the best out there. Lucky to not have one of the infected ones of 2016. I am truly a Stout fan now.

2017 bottle Got lucky getting this bottle. Probably will never have another chance because of how hard to get. I also don’t chase. Maybe I had good beer karma. It doesn’t matter. I got one and I opened it 12/2/2017 after dinner. See my instagram beerdjk1

OK the review:
Look: jet black, like a stout, like an imperial stout.
Smell: coffee first then bourbon on the “after smell” (it is the coffee variant !)
The coffe aroma is not strong, its balanced.
Feel: as usual ALWAYS PRIVATE on my reviews. We don’t talk about feel in public!

Taste: WELL.... “Hey Now” Smooooth ! The coffee is “off the rails good” bourbon not up front but balanced with the coffee.
At Room temp the bourbon becomes more present but does NOT take over the taste.
Great cold and at room temp.
And being totally Biased, great with the brownies my daughter made tonight.
YES I said this: Pairs great with homemade brownies!

Overall: IMHOpinion wow wow wow. And one more wow.maybe 2.
I personally enjoyed this beer.
One for the books because I don’t know if i will ever get the chance to acquire this variant again.

And that my review.
