wheresyourball (517) - El Cajon, California, USA - JUL 31, 2014
22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small tan head. Nose is caramel, malt, chocolate. Flavor is similar to the non BA version - a big malt bomb. Some oak and vanilla notes, not much bourbon. Dry roast finish. On the watery side. Just ok.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is roast, chocolate, oak, booze. Thin mouthfeel with sweet roast, bitter chocolate, with nice roasty finish. Hides alcohol well, very nice.

chinchill (1877) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap at the brewpub in Alpine. Appearance: used motor oil with a durable beige colored head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma: Mainly BBA affects, including, of course, bourbon, with hints of oak. Flavor: Rich, wood-toned bourbon nearly overpowers the dark roasted grains. Slightly sweet. Feel: Full body with good but low carbonation. O: Very well hidden ABV. Heartily recommended.

alexsdad06 (5418) - Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle shared by b3shine. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head that disappeared quickly to a thin ring. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts, the barrel is more integrated than most, bourbon, vanilla and wood. This is tasty, but the barrel may be too melded with the base beer to add much to the experience. Very good.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours thick and black with a large brown head. The nose is vanilla, chocolate, brown sugar, toffee, cherries, coffee and peaches. The taste is heavy medium sweet and medium. Near perfect balance. The texture is like chocolate cream, the body is heavy and finish is long! Amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (3110) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Cheers to thome for this. Peppery spice and chocolate on the nose. Almost salty. Dark fruits show themselves. Unusual nose but works. Salty vanilla bourbon in the taste with bitter chocolate and dark plummy fruits. Not great balance but it all works well together. Solid beer
