Delicious! Rich brown color, great aroma, vanilla, with wood and Bourbon. Even a little creamy. Expensive, but worth it.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Roasted malt aroma with the lightest hint of the barrel. Roasted coffee and chocolate at the start with a sweet chocolate and cream middle. Finishes sweet and roasty with the vanilla and bourbon wood hints at the finish.

On tap @ Tap25. Pours a dark ebony with a mahogany head. Aged for 3 months in Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels. Smells of sweet honey, vanilla, and whiskey. Tastes of vanilla, bread, toffee and espresso with chocolate and roasted barley with a bourbon aftertaste. Not my kind of beer, but this is a very good one. Not sure how many I could have gone through but enjoyed!

Draught. Opaque black liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of wood, chocolate, biscuit, coffee, bourbon, licorice, pumpernickel and light vanilla. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of chocolate, wood, bourbon, raw sugar and bread. Light booze. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Not a bad bourbon stout. Nicely balanced and the bourbon-ness of it isn’t too overwhelming. RIch and roasty to boot.

Draft to taster
Bourbon, oak, toasted malt. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. A sweet alcohol taste, not quite bourbon for me, toasted malt and apple.

I brought this to my beer club of five others for our porters and sours tasting. No one finished their sample. Must be a bad bottle? It was agreed that it poured well, had a great consistency but the smell, taste, and finish of this beer was overly heavy with alcohol to the point that it felt more like a "boilermaker in a a bottle" than a stout. ( a boilermaker being a shot of alcohol In a glass of beer). Some thought it was a porter. Very disappointed.
