Pours a dark brown chocolate color with very little head. The nose is complex, coffee and very prominent chocolate. The taste is even more complex with some hints of raisin mixed in. Such a yummy beer.

Poured from a 22oz bomber. Dark impenetrable black with a little head. Aromas of coffee. Tastes of coffee with background of dark, unsweetened chocolate. Goes down smooth. You do notice the bourbon on the way down or even more in the aftertaste but not overwhelming. Subtle. Solid stout but I don't think it is anywhere near a 97 rating. Very good though.

Nice stout. Good coffee flavor. Nice beer, but nothing exceptional.

Thick dark black pour with no head. Smells like cocoa and coffee beans. Not much alcohol smell at all. Big thick mouthfeel. Tastes like a chocolate covered espresso bean. Minor hints of whiskey. No alcohol taste. Terrific beer!
