Pours a pitch black color with a small brown foamy head. Head retention is non-existent. Lacing is good. Has that bourbon aroma with vanilla and a small amount of smoky java. Alcohol content evident. Very smooth. There is a big bourbon taste. Very mild java bitterness. A little smokey malts. Good amount of vanilla. Alcohol is definitely there. Medium to heavy bodied with mild carbonation. Good beer just wish it had a little less bourbon and a little more java.

I love this beer! The rich vanilla base with the bourbon touches are fantastic. It is smooth to drink with a creamy feel. I have had it as a draft and out of the bottle and prefer the draft. It pours very dark with a tan colored head. It feels a bit thin for a stout, but that doesn't hurt it at all. If you haven't had a barrel aged stout and want to try one, this is a good way to go.
