[5260-20130426] Tap. Bourbon barrel roasted wood malt aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown red-hued body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. Sweetened coffee malt and roasted wooden bourbon barrel flavour. Full body. Interesting to try. (7/3+/7-/3/15) 3.5

Mora2000 (5727) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2013
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.

(draught) cloudy deep brown, creamy fine tan head. Nose of raisin, cream, light bourbon and vanilla. Taste of banana, light whiskey, vanilla, nutty, alcohol. Medium carbonation, tasting some alcohol on the palate. Decent but wish it was richer or smoother.

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On tap. Black with a fizzy off white head. Floral bourbon, chocolate, citrus, caramel, and vanilla aroma. Medium bodied oily palate. Tastes of chocolate, citrus, vanilla, caramel, and light bourbon with a roasted grain sweet malty finish. I would have liked a little more bourbon forward, but still very good.

Draft at EBF. Pours a black body with a tan head. Nice chocolate, vanilla, oak and some moderate bourbon with a big etoh bite. Some light roasted notes and fruity esters or etoh latent fruits. On a more interesting note Dany’s reviews crack me up. I have to send this guy some beer! What a character.
Earlier Rating: 3/1/2009 Total Score: 3.6
Draft at EBF. Pours a black body with a creamy tan head. Nice vinous bourbon body, actually its quite powerful in terms of etoh. Still i found it to be a bit thin and watery bourbon body. Malt bill was grainy and dry with some light oak in the finish. It was okay.

Draft to snifter. Looks good; dark with nice head. Smells pretty good too; malty and boozy. Tastes good. The base beer and the barreling wed well together. Good on the palate too. Tasty!

egajdzis (5341) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2009
[Draft @ Capones] Poured an opaque black color with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, light bourbon, dark fruits, and chocolate. Taste of cocoa, vanilla, smoke, roasted malts, some caramel malts, oaky bourbon, and some alcohol in the finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2009
On tap at EBF, labeled as Bourbon Black (Allagash Black aged in Jim Beam Barrles). Pours a nice deep dark woody black with a thin head. Aroma is smooth with moderate amounts of wood, oak, sweet vanilla- and bourbon, good roasty and nutty chocolate notes- toned down earth and spicy Belgian character in the original batch. A bit more bourbon int eh flavor still not overwhelming, good toasty malts, light chocolate sweetness, some roast, light spice, smooth sweetness, and some oak to dry it out in the end. I think I liked this one quite a bit better than the regular Black.
