This beer is just loaded with all sorts of scents and flavours such as bourbon, molasses, and maple syrup. Unfortunately, coffee is nowhere to be found. This beer, like the barley wine and bourbon brown ale seems to me to be aged too long in bourbon barrels. Everything about the beer that was is gone and all that remains is booze and thick black super sweet tar. At least this looks and feels like an imp stout unlike the Brown and Barley (which looked virtually identical to this one and tasted pretty much the same too). My disappointment with three of Rock Bottom’s four bourbon beers is beyond words. The fourth brew, the redline Imp. Stout, was great. I’d loose the rest..
