JBPortland (783) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 17, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 750ml bottle release from the brewery. Pours a dark slick murky brown into large oversize red wine glass. Small mocha head fades quick into fine layer. Nose is semi-sweet chocolate, mocha, frappuccino. Mouthfeel is exquisite, creamy, glides across the palate. Super smooth for a 9.3% beer, be careful with this one. Taste is chocolate, roasty, almonds, vanilla, faint coffee, hint of bourbon increases as the glass warms. Finish is pleasant and not clingy. The year in oak does wonders for this beer, blows the regular black out of the water. Very well executed by Allagash. Hoping this becomes a yearly release.

Wonderful beer. Pours black with good mocha head and lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, roast malt, some nut and some subtle bourbon notes. Looks syrupy but consistency feels more thick on the tongue than syrupy. Booze well-disguised. Finishes bittersweet. Tap at brewery.

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.

On tap at Bottle Revolution (Raleigh). Pours black with tan head. Strong bourbon aroma - almost to the point of being just bourbon. Very strong bourbon flavor - as if a shot if good bourbon were dropped into a darn fine black IPA. Tldr... Yummy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle: This one poured a very dark opaque brown color. There was just a bit of a tan head that doesn’t linger long or leave much lacing. The aroma is a little lighter than expected. Not too much bourbon to the nose. Bready, chocolate, roastiness, some pine and citrus hops. The taste is very good. The bourbon flavor is more subdued than some other bourbon barrel aged beers that I’ve had. Chocolate, some roastiness, somewhat bitter. Touch of sweetness in finish. Very Nice!
