On draft at the tap room. Black with dark tan head. Bourbon, roast, with coffee, caramel, cocoa, raisin. Pretty boozy. Thick, smooth, dusty mouthfeel.

Bottled 3/20/2017 consumed 7/26/2018. Coffee flavor is waning a bit with over a year on it. Very smooth with a blend of bourbon, caramel and chocolate.

Tastes like praire bomb ( which I just had a couple hours ago) but not as sweet. A little bit of coffee taste without coffee bitterness instead there is a chocolate taste.

Bottled 2/20/18; drank 7/18/18 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice dark tan head; almost no lace.

Dark roast coffee bean, milk chocolate & dill pickle notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Dark roast coffee bean & dill pickle flavors up front; milk chocolate & mild bourbon notes on the finish.

A bit thin & the dill pickle notes don't thrill me; not terrible, but I won't buy another.

Taste: rich french roasted coffee, woody, semi sweet dark roasted malts, some boozy kick. Same with the nose. Black, opaque, tan head, some lattice of lace. Full but not heavy body.

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a snifter.

Pours a medium brown body with an off white fizzy head that reduces to a ring, no lacing.

Aromas are Vanilla, butterscotch cream, coffee, bourbon. Taste is vanilla beans, bourbon caramel coffee, chocolate and French vanilla on the finish . Medium mouthfeel medium carbonation.

This beer was awesome. Crushed it in the flavor category, the label didn’t call out vanilla but I got a ton, presumably from the bourbon barrels

Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of a tan color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong coffee, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, alcohol, hint of citrus hops, and a hint of wood. Fits the style of an American Double/Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong coffee, sweet malt, strong roasted malt, alcohol, hint of citrus hops, and a hint of wood. Overall, great feel, good body, blend, and aroma.
