Bottle thanks to Beechner224. Pours a dark black with a big tan head. Aroma is not much. I don’t get a lot. Maybe a tiny hint of bourbon. Taste is thin, nothing like the Brunch Weasel. This taste a little burnt and thin. One of the few beers where I prefer the non BA version a lot more.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle in my fridge. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is burnt coffee and booze. Maybe a hint of whiskey.... maybe. Taste is astringent, coffee biterness, very thin. I dont get any real barrel. The standard brunch weasel is much better. This version does nothing but detract from a great original. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this is not that good. I had the original just before this.... way better.

Great imp stout that rally brings a bourbon barrel flavor to a deep roast malt.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich dark, DARK brown with a consistent light tan head. Big sweeping coffee, rich breakfast bowl malt and sweet bourbon. Initial taste is herded bitterness, dark and rich with a soft sweetness. Coffee and toffee but fades to a delicious blend; Soft enough bourbon action throughout neat and soaking coconut.

Tap at the Sail. Pours a pitch black with a dark tanned head. Nose has cocoa, molasses, vanilla and hints of coffee. Taste is much the same - hints of whiskey coming through along with butterscotch and chocolate. quite sweet. Its pretty solid. A fraction thin in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Sail. Pours pitch black with a small firm tan head. Nose is sweet molasses, vanilla, sumptuous butterscotch, mild spice and a hint of coffee. Has hints of speyside rather than bourbon but I guess the sweetness gives it away. Sweet and chocolatey in the taste with loads of vanilla and butterscotch. Light spice finishes it off with a whisky like kick. Comes across more whisky forward than bourbon. Quite sweet and finishes a little thin. Was expecting more to this. Solid

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with a creamy, dark khaki head. Looks pretty damn attractive. Immediate aroma of cocoa, espresso, vanilla, wood and butterscotch. Taste is similar - dry cocoa, espresso and vanilla. Lingering taste of brown sugar, oak and coffee bitterness. Fuck yeah.
