Leighton (13979) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2010
Tap at Barcade, Brooklyn. Pours black with a creamy, tan head. Dark, roasted malts make up the nose. Flavor is sweet, roasty, with notes of chocolate, brown sugar, caramel and coffee. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet with dark malts and mocha, but not much bourbon. Still, this was easy drinkin’ and really enjoyable.

italianjohn (2489) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Black pour tan head creamy with light lacing .... aroma of bourbon and roasted malts and coffee ..... very smooth and silky with a light fruity and roasted malt and coffee taste ... a bitter warming alcohol bourbon finish .... not a heavy brew kind of thin and easy drinking as it warms more of the bourbon flavor comes in ... not bad but i wasn’t blown away

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Bourbon and alcohol. That, unfortunately sums it up. Easily my biggest disappointment for the night at Barcade. The bourbon aging effectively killed everything else of note.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Draft at the Three Penny Taproom - Pours a very dark black/brown in color with a small tan head. Aroma is strong of bourbon and vanilla with some dark roasted malts. Flavor is slightly sweet and heavy with the bourbon/vanilla. The dark roasted malts come in at the end. Dry finish. I like this much better than their regular "Black"...

Draft at St. Stephen’s with James. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a thick, creamy tan head aroma of toffee, caramel, chocolate, bourbon, rum, toasted malts and slight whiskey notes. Full bodied with a modest, smooth palate. Finishes with a nice heavy burn. Good stout.
