Underrated beer here! On draft at Armsby abbey and it was probably my second favorite beer of stoutfest behind the CBS. Really rich and spicy with great bourbon character and creamy mouthfeel. Taste was pleasent and the barrel aging was lightly done to perfection. Awesome work.

Bottle thanks to bman1113vr. Pours a deep, dark brown with tan head. Aroma of some dark roast, hops, some light citrus. Flavor is pretty good, some dark roast, hops, very faint bitter. Mouth feel is med-full body with low carbonation. Overall, pretty good stuff!

dchmela (2848) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Growler from The Growler Store. Pours black with a thick creamy head that hangs around for forever. Dry roasted grain aroma with a nicely balanced bourbon barrel compliment. Smooth roasted grain, bourbon, vanilla and oak in the taste with a dark roasted grain bite on the end. Well balanced and tasty brew.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Pours black with thin head. Nose of chocolate and bourbon. Mouthfeel is oily and creamy. tastes of chocolate, bourbon, plums, figs, earth, vanilla, and cedar. the bourbon adds sweetness but is not overwhelmingly sweet or boozy mess. quite drinkable for the abv

Tap at Capone’s. Pours out black with a small brown head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts and some dark fruits. Taste is complex and very well balanced, smooth velvety mouthfeel with bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits and some earthy notes on the finish. Very solid.

Lukaduke (2724) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours a rich burnt umber color with a two finger light khaki foam. The nose is soft with sweet chocolate and bourbon soaked tootsie roll, spicy vanilla bean and licorice. The palate follows... wow Im digging this lots of cola nut, round full soft mouthfeel, bourbon bite is apparent but dialed in with the roasted chocolate malt and traces of licorice, herbal spice and vanilla. Really loving this !

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
