look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pitch black beer with a very thin khaki colored head. Head is mainly just an outer ring along the glass.
Nose is boozy with notes of vanilla, bourbon and some oak.
Taste is great. Notes of bourbon, vanilla and oak with some coffee/espresso notes as well all bouncing off each other.
Has a nice warm feeling without being too boozy or having a whiskey burn.
Overall, I think this is a great beer with many dimensions to it and great balance.

Full disclosure it was a 2014 drank recently. It has turned for the worse in my case.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter
2014

This beer pours black and is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves very little lacing.

The smell is pretty nice. I get light bourbon and coffee notes with a lot of milk chocolate.

I get a lot of chocolate in the flavor with some hints of bourbon. There is a little black coffee in the finish.

Full mouthfeel with low carbonation

This beer is not as good as it is fresh. I thought it was a 2015 and was avoiding it, so I left it in the cellar too long. The smell is fantastic still, but the flavor is a little oxidized.

Super smooth coffee bourbon stout. Fresh Rich coffee grounds and vanilla, spicy bourbon oak on the aroma. Taste is very smooth- the coffee and roasty malts stand up to the barrel treatment for a well balanced palate. Feel is very smooth and helps the flavors linger. A great winter beer, and one of the better Bourbon aged coffee stouts around. One of Odd Side's best for sure.

I hate rating infected beers but this is going south. 2015 consumed in March 2016. Tart cherry and pomegranate. I can sense the potential but the body is thinning and this is only going to get worse.
