MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
A Sim rate (Extreme Beer Festival): Such a subtle bourbon in the aroma which is rare for a barrel-aged beer of this kind. Smooth coconut, nuts and rich chocolate in the flavour. So incredibly subtle again for a barrel-aged beer. Wood and caramel in the finish. Damn. Absolute win!

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Draft at Craft. Pours dark brownish black with 1-finger tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose is a complex and luscious medley of huge oaky bourbon, dark patent malt, molasses, prunes. Medium palate heft, lightly carbonated in the flavor, with dark malt, big oaky bourbon, vanilla, fig, prune, molasses, and dark choc. The palate is a tad light, not unexpected for this style. Delicious.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2010
The aroma of sweet and biscuit is enveloped by the bourbon barrels. The dark thick stout color sports a big bold head. The stout flavor is slightyly bitter and bites at the end with an ABV of 9.5.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2010
EBF 2010 Session One: Deep brown with a tan film of head. The aroma has mocha, wood, peat, toasted dry oak and some marshmallow character. The flavor is oaky with notes of cocoa, mild coffee, and dry bourbon meshes with a chocolaty presence. Very cohesive flavors and picked up nice dry woody tannins from the barrel. Subtle, complex and tasty.

Jblauvs (1339) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Black pour with tan head. Aroma is heavy bourbon and some chocolate, vanilla bean. Palate is relatively thick, thinning out a bit on the finish. Flavor is dominated by barrel notes and bourbon. Chocolate, and some nuttiness come through but the delicate spiciness of the belgian stout does not translate well in the bourbon barreled version, still pretty nice.

GT2 (8176) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 6, 2010
On tap at Paradiso. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Little lace. Aroma is whiskey, chocolate ganache, Godiva liquor, light cayenne pepper. Very oily palate. Lots of rich vanilla and some cognac showing through in the taste as well as some light flemish sour notes, vinegar, sherry. Some sticky sweetness in the finish. Yum.
