UPDATED: MAR 15, 2009 Rating #300. On tap @ Capones. Pours a dark black with a small tan head. Soggy wood cask, whisky aroma, alcohol is definitely present. Well carbonated, some cola, vanila extracts, chocolate, with a sweet, dry bourbon finish. Very good.

Darker brown with a nice chocolate/oak/vanilla aroma. Flavor is much smoother, oaky, and full bodied than the standard version. Not the greatest, but definitely an improvement.

Black pour with tan head. Aroma is heavy bourbon and some chocolate, vanilla bean. Palate is relatively thick, thinning out a bit on the finish. Flavor is dominated by barrel notes and bourbon. Chocolate, and some nuttiness come through but the delicate spiciness of the belgian stout does not translate well in the bourbon barreled version, still pretty nice.

Sampled at American Craft Beer Fest 2010. Pours black with a beige head. Thick texture, sort of oily. Strong flavors of chocolate and coffee with some hoppy undertones. A great beer

patrickfannon (1235) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Draft at St. Stephen’s with James. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a thick, creamy tan head aroma of toffee, caramel, chocolate, bourbon, rum, toasted malts and slight whiskey notes. Full bodied with a modest, smooth palate. Finishes with a nice heavy burn. Good stout.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Draft at the Three Penny Taproom - Pours a very dark black/brown in color with a small tan head. Aroma is strong of bourbon and vanilla with some dark roasted malts. Flavor is slightly sweet and heavy with the bourbon/vanilla. The dark roasted malts come in at the end. Dry finish. I like this much better than their regular "Black"...

From the tap poured a black color with a good amount of head. Sweet toasted malty flavor with a lingering finish.
