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.

Damico (2693) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2010
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.

Growler from The Growler Store. Pours black with a thick creamy head that hangs around for forever. Dry roasted grain aroma with a nicely balanced bourbon barrel compliment. Smooth roasted grain, bourbon, vanilla and oak in the taste with a dark roasted grain bite on the end. Well balanced and tasty brew.

Tap at Capone’s. Pours out black with a small brown head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts and some dark fruits. Taste is complex and very well balanced, smooth velvety mouthfeel with bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits and some earthy notes on the finish. Very solid.

johnnnniee (2462) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2013
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.
