Appearance is black with short tan head that fades pretty quick.

Smells of bourbon, chocolate, cherry, coffee, and molasses.

Taste is coffee first and not just coffee but really good coffee, the way they infused the coffee in this is amongst the best coffee beers I have tasted. after the coffee comes the bourbon followed by dark chocolate and molasses with a hint of cherry and dark fruits.

mouthfeel is full and coating the tongue with good carbonation for the style.

overall this beer was fantastic. my father-in-law brought this over and I decided to pull out a KBS and put this side by side. This beer was hands down the winner, this beer is under rated in my opinion. I hope I can get some more of this in the future.

Pours a dark solid black with about a finger of light brown head. Dissipates almost away, just a tiny amount of lacing about the side of the glass. Smells of coffee, vanilla, and mildly of bourbon. Taste is coffee up front, smooth and not bitter coffee, fades into chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon flavors. No strong alcohol flavor to it. Nice feel to it, a little thicker than regular Dark Hollow, smooth. Leaves a pleasant, slightly sweet, chocolate and bourbon flavor behind on the tongue. Overall it's a good, solid stout.
