2016 Vintage. Love the coffee roaster Hardywood uses. Always comes off quite beautifully. Cocoa, hints of vanilla, dark berry from the coffee beans, don't get much from the barrel. Body detracts from this beer. Has a creaminess but is very light, with not much heft. Still a wonderful coffee stout.

2016 edition.Pours into a goblet a deep garnet hued dark chocolate with a creamy deep beige head atop.Dark roast coffee over top of mild bourbon/vanilla notes,not in your face by any means wich is a good thing for me.A smooth and sticky feel is spot on for a beer of this style and strength.A mix of mellow bourbon barrel and deep coffee roast makes for an appetizing palate,throw in some bitter chocolate and alcohol dipped dark fruit and you have a top notch beer.To me this beer is underrated and by a good measure....this beer is fantastic!

On tap at the brewery. Looks luscious and enticing, but it goes down from there. Very faint aroma, some cold-brew coffee in the taste, along with roasted malts... but no bourbon. Drinkable, but disappointing.

Fresh bottle from 2016 release

Look is mahogany with creamy tan head. Couple fingers on the pour that settle down to a thick tight-bubbled ring. Eventually disappears, no lacing.

Smell of bourbon booze up front with light notes of coffee and vanilla.

Taste is coffee forward, slightly bitter, dark chocolate flavors come in and then the bourbon finishes it off. Well balanced barrel aged stout, nothing too overwhelming and there's time to pick up and enjoy all of the layers.

Feel is excellent, full body, slightly oily. Not much carbonation.

Overall, I'm very impressed with this. Its my first beer from Hardywood and its really good. Its not Goose Island good, but it offers something different and more subtle.

750ml cork and cage. 2015 vintage. Served in a snifter glass.

Pours dark black body, half finger offwhite head, dies down quickly, thin collar, no lacing. Smells of cocoa and chocolate with a decent dose of coffee, milk chocolate, oak, smoky bourbon. Flavour is similar; smoky bourbon, dark coffee, not very acidic or roasty, but more of a generic coffee flavour profile, dark chocolate, cocoa, oak. Mouthfeel is fuller bodied, appropriate carbonation, a bit of smoky coffee on the finish. It's a solid bourbon coffee stout, certainly with a nice body, but overall not the most complex as I'd expect based on others.
