Like most bourbon barrel aged beers, the bourbon is too strong here. The aroma is bourbon, chocolate, some roast. The appearance is a deep balck, almost no head. The flavor is bourbon, chocolate, molasses. The finish has some chocolate sweetness, but is mainly bourbon. Very good beer. Again, the bourbon sort of overwhelms everything else.

The aroma of sweet and biscuit is enveloped by the bourbon barrels. The dark thick stout color sports a big bold head. The stout flavor is slightyly bitter and bites at the end with an ABV of 9.5.

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.
