Bottle pour; super dark with a thin head (but not low on the carb), Nose is big rich coffee notes that are neither bitter nor green. Feel is literally sticky. Flavors are brown sugar notes with coffee and bourbon, however it never has any sweetness. I had pours of D8, BBT and this in the last day, and this was my favorite. I'm not trashing the others, this is like picking between your three favorite children.

Black color with a tan head.

This is better than BA sump. Great coffee flavors all around. No roast. Thick. Balanced. Chocolate. Perfect amount of coffee. Very impressed with this one. Full bodied. Fudgy.

Really high end coffee. Fruit. Acidity. Chocolate. Roast. Coffee is the star as the bourbon is so well integrated. Thick and rich stout. The base beer shines and is taken to the next level by the barrel.
