Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is bourbon forward...not hot...roasty and vanilla notes too. Flavor follows suit...definite bourbon, lt vanilla, roasty and dark fruit notes...just a touch of oak. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bourbon/vanilla/oak and dry and roasty.

Terminus (3482) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Tap at City Beer in downtown SF-June 2012-pours deep brown almost black with a froathy tan head. nose is sweet foregin stout, with sweet vanilla and oak. WOW! crazy roasty chocolate vanilla flavors, like an ice cream cone! fantastic! rich lush body, especially for this style. never becomes viscus. A fairly complex brew however, i wish i had a bigger sample (6 oz). I was not a fan of City beer-over hyped and over priced!

On tap at EBF 3/16/13. Earthy and roasty stout with a slightly ashy almost chalky consistency. Bourbon and oak come through as well as the yeasty Belgian phenols and flavors. I love stouts, I love bourbon, but I think the Belgian yeast detracts rather than enhances this brew.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2013
On tap at jake’s... Pours a deeper cola shaded pour with less intense edge, moreso a deeper brown and topped with a thin film of light beige head... Belgian yeast and chocolate notes with caramel a cents with a touch of barrel going on late. Fairly standard all around and not too distinguishable... Belgian yeast and cocoa chocolate notes, medium sweetness throughout with a mildly bitter prickly finish. Bourbon is fairly subdued but not completely absent. Lighter bodied than expected with your more than expected level of carbonation. Not that great.

WeeHeavySD (3365) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 13, 2009
12oz handbottle from hopdog, thanks so much Steve, I love Allagash and it never hurts to have one of their rarer special brews. Perfect beautifal pour, black with a 2 finger tan head. Nose is sweet, with some nice vanilla and a touch of bourbon. Taste is sweet, bourbony and very bitter, a little strange on the mouth. Interesting and glad i got to try it. Thanks Steve.
