TheGB (500) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2012
On tap at Timberwood grill. Black with a quarter inch head. Light aroma of malt. Medium to full bodied. Not a lot of bourbon barrel taste. Maybe less interesting than the regular black. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pilgrimoutlaw (764) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2012
On tap at TnD and served way too cold. Pours opaque black with moderate black head. Smell is all bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Flavor is the same with a little roast/toast. Taste is moderately bitter. Body is relatively light and creamy. Much less intense than say, Kentucky Breakfast Stout. A decent beer, but I think I prefer the plain Allagash better.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Poured from a tap at flying saucer. Pours a nice dark color with a smooth tan head leaving good lacing. Aroma is bourbon forward with notes of vanilla, toasted malt and maybe even some chocolate. Flavor is very smooth bitterness with not as much bourbon as is on the nose. I can pick up the beginning ester flavors and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is full overall with good carbonation. Not amazing but would drink again.

NikkTwist (1538) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2013 Draft at Eulogy. Start of a barrel. Opaque brown pour in a tulip glass. Nice foamy tan head that left some lace. Slightly medicinal chocolate liquor. Definite bourbon barrel notes. Tootsie Rolls. Not much aroma once the head dies down. Silky palate. Smooth finish. High ABV is well hidden. Nice, but lacks complexity. Update: Having it on draft again during an Allagash event at Moriartys. Similar looking, though much less lace. Started too cold but warmed up to some deeper complex flavors.

Draught. This is a case where more is not necessarily better. I like the original version better.
