Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of coffee, smoke. Taste is of black coffee, some smokiness, no bourbon or alcohol are detected. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall a good beer for coffee lovers.

Didnt look like a stout when i poured it and doesnt feel like one either.this is lazy beer making, comparing this to a good, full bodied barrel aged stout is like comparing caitlyn jenner to j-lo.....piss poor effort.i tried this and a bells cherry stout back to back....need a narwhal now to give my mouth some proper stout flavour.

12oz bottle into a solo cup. (I know...)

A: Pours a pretty darn opaque black with 3/4" khaki head that sits down in the blink of an eye. Retention is poor. Lacing is actually OK.

S: Muted vanilla-coffee notes. Almost a simple syrup thing going on. It's not quite awful, but it's far from special.

T: More coffee & vanilla. Where's the bourbon? It's so buried here that it only shows up as an unpleasant sharp note in the finish. For what they are, the coffee & vanilla kind of work for me.

M: Drinks more like a cream ale than a stout. Completely wrong for both the flavors & style.

O: I'd wanted to like this brew, but jeez, it's like they just didn't want me to.
