look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Pretty typical for a BA stout - black with a thin mocha head.

Aroma: Bourbon comes through here nicely. Also chocolate.

Flavor: Dark chocolate and bourbon are prominent, and they're balanced well. Raisins and dark fruits, tobacco.

Palate/Finish: I wish it were a bit thicker... it's not thin though which is good. I'd say oily and medium-bodied, fairly sticky. Finishes with bourbon and chocolate.

Overall: This is really a great brew, but I'm not sure its score of 97 reflects my experience. I'd call it a 93 or something like that. No negativity there though - just didn't quite live up to the hype. Anyway, this is a wonderful BA stout with rich flavors. I do wish it was a little more complex. Worth seeking out still in my opinion.

22oz bottle from 2017 RIS tasting. Black pour with beige head...yada yada yada. Another big sweet ice cream sundae of a beer, with a boozy twist. Vanilla and chocolate. molasses and roast grains, barrels and bourbon. Pretty tasty.

I LOVE the bitterness and strong bourbon forwardness. Given the flavors now, I bet it would be super hot when fresh. I’m so happy to have scored a bottle now. Their anniversary blends have never disappointed.

Hard to believe this has had two years to mellow - still really Woody and hot. Great base beer here with lots of nice dark malt complexity of semisweet chocolate and slightly acrid from black malts. Nose is dominated by wood and booze and the linger is pretty heavy.

650 mL bottle. Black body. Smells of bourbon, oak, nutty and chocolate malts. Tastes of strong barrel. Really strong bourbon and oak. Roasted malt and strong oak. Booze. Very big stout without being all that sweet. It's pretty slow to drink, though, because of the strong alcohol presence.

After a couple years in the bottle this is still right at the edge if being too woody. Still a great stout, glad I got a bottle, But will let the other one sit,

Dark brown to nearly black appearance with a fast breaking tan head. Smells boozy with vanilla, roasted coffee, macerated cherries and chocolate. Complex nose but not overly appealing. Taste is similar with barrel influences of oak with some vanilla, fudge and booze to round things out. Nice creamy feel for a CW stout. Good beer but one that gets tiring quickly.

Super dark, decent head, nice rung of bubbles. Roasty fudge smell followed by alcohol. Tastes very roasty, boozy, pretty good. Not a ton of bourbon barrel but a tasty beer.

Poured 22oz bottle into snifter. It's a dark black body, opaque with a one finger tan head, good retention and spotty lacing. Smell is distinct bourbon richness, roasted malt and coffee, milk chocolate, hints of oak and vanilla. Nice bourbon presence from the start with rich chocolate, caramel, vanilla and roasted malt, hints of coffee bean and oak. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, good carbonation, creamy with a richness to it. Just another outstanding anv beer from CW.
