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.

pushkinwow (2150) - 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.

Extreme dark brown pour with a thin white head. Vanilla bourbon, toffee, caramel, and milk chocolate with hints of cocoa nib and mocha. Medium to full body with great effervescence and a sweet roasty finish. Delicious!

Draft Gingerman pour is black in color with a thin coating of brown head. Aroma has sweet bourbon, vanilla, oak, and bitter chocolate. Mouth feel is medium and there is average carbonation. Flavor continues on with the juicy bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark chocolate, and some hops. So much better than the base beer.

Draught. This is a case where more is not necessarily better. I like the original version better.
