Bottle thanks to John. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is dark chocolate roast, oak, booze. Medium mouthfeel with strong roast, sweet roasted malt and light bitterness. Very good.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Vanilla, bourbon and oak aromas. Sharp and thin with dark caramel, chocolate and bourbon upfront turning to warm espresso and vanilla in the lasting finish.

[5260-20130426] Tap. Bourbon barrel roasted wood malt aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown red-hued body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. Sweetened coffee malt and roasted wooden bourbon barrel flavour. Full body. Interesting to try. (7/3+/7-/3/15) 3.5

Bottle shared at the Foothills Sexual Chocolate pre-release party. Black pour. Nice belgian yeasty notes to go with slight woody notes, vanilla, and dark chocolate that’s more in the background than expected. Fairly good.

dnstone (2134) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Beam bourbon booze aroma. Coffee brown color. Light bodied roast stout with a definitive booze bourbon edge. Just ok, likable if you're not into heavy bourbon stouts. Notes: on tap at Novare Res, Portland ME ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pushkinwow (1966) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at the 2013 Capones Black Friday event. Dark brown with a faint dark tan head. Bourbon, vanilla, oak, buttery, yeast, some bittersweet chocolate, bit of fruitiness. Moderate body and carbonation, palate is sweet and somewhat dry, overall felt the combination of the belgian stout with the barrel treatment was just a little too much and didn’t work for me. O well.

Very dark brown to black pour with a tan head. The aroma has some nice oak and bourbon notes as well as some roasted malt. There is also a hint of licorice in the aroma. The flavor has some big oak and chocolate notes as well as some bourbon, maple and vanilla. As the beer warms I start to get a little bit of nut character. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.
