Nice deep chocolate brown color. Good cappuccino head tht leaves pretty nice lacing as it dissipates. Aroma is light, with faint oak and sweet malts. Taste is interesting for a stout. Lots of carbonation, kind of mild for a stout. Flavors of roasted brown sugar and faint bourbon. Alcohol comes through ever so slightly. Feels slick on the palate and has a bitter sugar finish that stays for awhile

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter

Pours a dark opaque brown with a slight mahogony glow around the edges. One finger of creamy head recedes to a nice firm collar. Aroma is comprised mostly of roasted coffee with notes of cocoa and bourbon in the background. Underwhelming.

The taste is pretty much what is expected from the smell. Dark roast coffee with faint toffee, chocolate and barely-noticeable bourbon. Nothing offensive or out of place, but just like the nose, underwhelming. The bigger issue for me is the texture. Way too thin and light for a stout trying to carry this flavor profile. A bit watery even. Carbonation is slightly overdone.

Overall, I would hesitate to call this a "bad" beer, but don't get your hopes up. Not worth the price in my book, and this will be a one and done for me.
