Excellent Stout. Very wine aroma and taste. Feels prunes and oak tones. Partly acidity adds fullness of taste. Very Well.

I have a soft spot for bourbon barrel beers. This is a nice one. Very good flavor, not over the top and heavy so you can sit down and really enjoy it without too much buzz. Nice vanilla notes, touch of bourbon. Good beer.

Sweet roasted aromas. Very dark with a thin head. The flavor starts off roasted then the woody barrel carries it a smooth bourbon finish. The sweetness is kept in control and it finishes perfectly.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bomber. Nose is light vanilla and bourbon. Deep black color with tan head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing. Taste of vanilla, caramel and roasted malt with a hint of bourbon. Semi-dry and thin for a stout. No hop presence or bitterness. Disappointing for a bourbon barrel aged stout.

Black pour into the glass with the deepest of ruby fringes. The initially soap-pocked head leaves soap lacing. The nose is woody, of vanilla and bourbon. Relatively subdued, but well-integrated flavors of oak, lightly roasted malt, vanilla notes, bourbon essence and a kiss of alcohol finish with a definitive oaked bourbon. Again, everything is held in check very well, with a soft palate and silky smooth mouthfeel. Semi-dry with nice aging to it. Very well put together.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 05.09.14.
A: Midnight black with some red at the bottom. Tan 2 finger head. Great lacing.
S: Vanilla, caramel. I could smell it from an armís length away while pouring. Magnificent!
T: Vanilla, caramel, bourbon dominate. Very slight char is there too as well as milk chocolate.
M: Creamy smooth. A bit watery but the ABV is very low for a BBA stout, so whatever.
O: This was my first BBA stout. Iím an addict now because of this one. The vanilla, caramel, and bourbon are strong. It is surprisingly complex. The ABV is low, but there is always Huge Arker for something heavier.

Boozy bourbon nose. Makes me afraid I wonít like it. As i typically prefer my bourbon aged beers with just a hint of bourbon. Luckily itís way less dominant in the flavor. Surprisingly balanced for such a light stout. Pretty dry, actually. A touch of fruit and vanilla from the bourbon. A bit of roasty malt. Pretty thin finish. Tasty, drinkable, but a little simple.
