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.

drastically overpriced for a moderately better than average stout. inky black on the pour, flatish looking, just a tan film is left on top. very bourbony nose, really intense alcohol and charcoal and vanilla notes, really charred and potent. caramel in the flavor, along with the bourbon right up front. there is, as the bottle advises, a touch of toasted coconut in the middle somewhere to pull the flavors together. burning tobacco vibe to the finish. what is the abv of this? god its potent. almost undrinkably alcoholic when it warms. mellow carbonation could use a boost i think, full body and filling, but still runny rather than syrupy, which makes this feel really strange in the mouth. im left breathing fire from the booze. look, im glad these guys exist, im glad they are moving beyond colorado native into more refined stuff, but you cant charge me 20something bucks for a beer that is so forgettable as this one is. maybe a few years in the cellar would dress it up a bit?

Black as the darkest night, good pour.
Smells rich and delicate, not too hot but tons of chocolate, definitely a great nose.
Tastes really nice, tons of great barrel rye characteristics, this is fantastic!
Soy sauce up in my tongue, very good though, super smooth and complex as a mother!
Overall I'm very impressed with this... I swear this would hold its own against some of the big boys out there in the BB RIS league, game on!
