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

dnstone (2360) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Beam bourbon booze aroma. Coffee brown color. Light bodied roast stout with a definitive booze bourbon edge. Just ok, likable if you're not into heavy bourbon stouts. Notes: on tap at Novare Res, Portland ME ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pushkinwow (2227) - 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.

Bacterial (2164) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Draft at ChurchKey in DC. Dark pour with a tan head, big lacing. Nose is oaky, smokey and a hint of bourbon. Mouthfeel is nice, smokiness continues with some fun Belgian spice and just a hint of bourbon. Quite good!

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 31, 2012
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.
