Bottle thanks to John. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is dark chocolate roast, oak, booze. Medium mouthfeel with strong roast, sweet roasted malt and light bitterness. Very good.

nimbleprop (6355) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Several glasses on tap at Churchkey in Washington D.C. Served in a snifter, pours an opaque black with a soft, creamy white head. Aroma is heavy with vanilla, chocolate, whiskey, toasted malts. Flavor was very well balanced, vanilla and chocolate, wood, rum, malts, toasted grains, nuts, coffee. Full bodied without being overwhelming, light carbonation. I wish they would bottle this, but if they did I’m sure it would cost $20.

onceblind (6172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2012
At Avery’s 2012 Strong Ale Fest. Clear dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma is kinda oak-y toffee, with a bit of spicy "blackness". Odd. Flavor is creamy chocolate with a slightly bitter oak tone with a bourbon/vanilla shade. But the texture tastes a little watered down.

radagast83 (6119) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark, nearly pitch black color with a nice brown, quickly dissipating head. Aroma was lots and lots of wood, plenty of mellowed vanilla notes. Lots of bourbon, some mellowed roasted malts, lingering chocolate. Very smooth and drinkable for 9.5%.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2009 In short: A chocolaty stout/Belgian crossover. Nice beer but no improvement over the regular Allagash Black
How: Tap at Boston Extreme Beer Fest 2009
The look: Black body topped by a large tan head
In long: Light-medium roastiness (regular Black feels more roasted). Body is fluffy and a with a lively carbonation just like the regular Black. Alcohol a little apparent (no the case with the regular Black). Sweet dark fruits just like with the regular Black but a little less chocolaty than the regular Black. Some vanilla here that is not in the regular Black. All in all this is a decent stout/belgian crossover but the bourbon barrels aging does not add anything worthwhile over the regular Black. If anything I prefer the regular Black. There was nothing wrong the original beer so why did they lock it in a barrel for 10 months? I know. It’s because it’s a Black. They wouldn’t do that to the Allagash White, would they? Scandalous.

Very dark brown to black pour with a tan head. The aroma has some nice oak and bourbon notes as well as some roasted malt. There is also a hint of licorice in the aroma. The flavor has some big oak and chocolate notes as well as some bourbon, maple and vanilla. As the beer warms I start to get a little bit of nut character. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.
