nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Several glasses on tap at Churchkey in Washington D.C. Served in a snifter, pours an opaque black with a soft, creamy white head. Aroma is heavy with vanilla, chocolate, whiskey, toasted malts. Flavor was very well balanced, vanilla and chocolate, wood, rum, malts, toasted grains, nuts, coffee. Full bodied without being overwhelming, light carbonation. I wish they would bottle this, but if they did I’m sure it would cost $20.

Leighton (10967) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2010
Tap at Barcade, Brooklyn. Pours black with a creamy, tan head. Dark, roasted malts make up the nose. Flavor is sweet, roasty, with notes of chocolate, brown sugar, caramel and coffee. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet with dark malts and mocha, but not much bourbon. Still, this was easy drinkin’ and really enjoyable.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2011
on tap at The Birch in norfolk. pours a silky, jet black with a thick, khaki head leaving light rings of lace. aroma is damn nice with raw, belgian cocoa, banana esters, vanilla, and wood with light notes of coffee, yeast, and sweetened nuts. flavor is great with big notes of dark, bitter chocolate, wood, vanilla, and oak backed by banana pudding, creme pie filling, and light roasted coffee. palate is medium bodied and creamy almost like this was on nitro (it wasn’t) with light carbonation and a dry, bittersweet finish. overall, a damn nice barrel aged stout.

Draft from fireworks. Pours black with a thin brown head. Big bourbon scented wood on the nose. Lots of oak and vanilla on the tongue. Silly smooth mouthfeel. Finishes clean. Very Nice!

b3shine (5425) - Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Draft to snifter. Looks good; dark with nice head. Smells pretty good too; malty and boozy. Tastes good. The base beer and the barreling wed well together. Good on the palate too. Tasty!

On tap @ Stag’s Head. Deep brown/black with a small frothy tan head and notable lacing. Huge aroma of bourbon, plum, vanilla, and roasted malt. Taste is similar with notes of bakers chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, and slight booziness. Nice creamy mouthfeel and dry slightly bitter finish.

750 ml bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a darker brown with a beige head of foam. Aroma is sweet licorice, bourbon, roast, some wet wood. The taste is a darker sweetness with some roast and alcohol heat coming through in the finish. Pretty good overall.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with orange glints; tan head. Aroma is rather bourbon. Med body, or nearly. Flavor is bourbon, dark malt, a little treacle, some dark fruit, a little coffee or chocolate or something. Tasty stuff.
