Thanks to mrbubbler/GRG1313 for sharing this one at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.

Batch 1. Bottle # 476/1344.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, cookie dough, and whiskey. Taste is much the same with a cocoa flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty and woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a nice barrel aged presence in the aromas and flavors.

Poured from odd sized bottle into new Belgium globe.
A- Pours a dark brown, almost black, dark brown head with a touch of red hue and ruby highlights held to the light.
S- Sweet chocolate, bitter chocolate, some oak and cedar, earthy and musty.
T- Follows the nose. Somehow I expected more. Roasty malts, bourbon, wood, earth with a lingering bittersweet aftertaste. This sounds weird but it reminds me of eating chocolate bars in a damp wooden casket in a shallow grave. Yeah.
M- Thin, doesn't feel like a stout at all.
O- not impressed. For the price and being from a giant brewery I expected something along the lines of Bourbon county...

750 ml bottle, batch 1 bottle 1132/1344. Pours dark brown black with a small brown head that quickly goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is rich bakers chocolate, grains, vanilla and some bourbon. More alcohol comes out as it warms.

The flavor is sweet rich chocolate and vanilla with a lot of pretty harsh bitter alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, good and flavorful especially for Coors but too sweet and alcoholic.

Bottle #1128/1344. Thanks to appetiteforparis for the share.

This pours out luscious and thick with a fudge-colored head that dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, Whiskey, brown sugar, molasses. Served cold the predominant flavor is coffee with some chocolate and then a big whiskey barrel finish. The personality of this beer emerges as it warms: the coffee is joined by flavors of vanilla, coconut (as the label promised), raisins, liquorice and the oakiness of the barrel. The mouthfeel is right on for the style; bracing yet completely drinkable. Overall an impossibly good beer from the people who brought you Coors Light.
