On tap at Julianís - Providence, RI. Finishing off my four sampler of Allagashís return to Rhode Island, Iím reminded that, oh right, I donít like Allagash beers. I never buy their bottles because I always find the beers undewhelming and overpriced. Able to sample a number at a reasonable price, it seems like a better deal, but still leaves me flat. This bourbon black is a sloppy mess. The underlying stout is weak, compromised, and more like a brown ale. Somehow, the bourbon gets lost and doesnít integrate well. Mediocre.

A nice sweeter, fruitier Belgian stout thatís aged in barrels for apparently just the right amount of time; the bourbon is definitely present but not overpowering to the fairly complex malt flavors. I donít love these kinds of stouts but itís pretty darn good.

NOB. Black pour with a nose of Vanilla and bourbon. Mild wood taste with a chocolate roast taste. Finishishes with a dry earthy bourbon splash. Great!

AirForceHops (2953) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Pours pitch black with a hick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon and faint vanilla. Flavor was chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, dark roasted malts and some notes of coffee. If you drink a few of these, your gunna feel it, you have it remind yourself itís 9.5 ABV. *note to self* The flavor is so nice and smooth, you can get drunk fast. Take it easy...

From tap at Sunset Grill. Pours dark brown to almost black with a small, tan and creamy head. Aroma is dark roasted malty and smooth bourbon. Bitter, dark roasted and fruity bourbon flavoured. Lingering dark roasted malty and slight bourbon flavoured. Slight bitter and dry roasted malt finish.

Reviewed from notes. Pours black, of course. A bit of of a tan head and some lacing. Nose brings roasted malt, wood, vanilla, some barrel characteristics, and hints of dark drugs. Taste adds in some molasses with all he flavors melding well. Feel is nice and slightly boozy. Drinks quite well; one of the better Allagash beers ai have had.

Deep black pour. The aroma is quite herbal with a lot of vanilla/caramel bourbon aroma. Intensely bourbony behind some sweet black licorice, rich sweet malt and more bourbony character as well. All of the yeast contribution to this brew seems to have been beaten out of it. Rich cocoa and bourbon. I like it actually - but itís definitely unsubtle.

Big chocolate and bourbon nose, very boozy. Moderately sweet taste with a light bitterness. Lots of buttery coconut-y bourbon in this one to go along with the usual chocolate, toffee and light roast.

wedgie9 (1824) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Tasted on draft at FoBAB 2010. Pours nearly black amber with a massive off-white head that leaves rocky lace. The nose is super-roasted malt with espresso and bitter dark chocolate. The flavor is vanilla oak, bourbon, roasted malt, espresso, and dark chocolate. The body is full with average carbonation and a long roasted espresso and whiskey finish.

Sampled at FoBAB 2010. Dark brown/blackish pour. Tan head. Aroma is bourbon, chocolate mousse, some wood and vanilla. Flavor is very smooth, nice bourbon notes with a bit of oak. Somewhat salty. Nice mouthfeel. Alcohol not to prevalent. overall, excellent.
