3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is nearly pitch black with a fluffy khaki head. Nice bourbony nose, definitely not overpowering, there’s some oak and vanilla, milk chocolate, roasted coffee, and nice bready notes too. Very light taste to it, kind of disappointing, some nice vanilla and oak up front, light coffee notes, toffee, toasted malt, and a trace bourbon character there. Very thin almost watery taste, and I’ve had multiple bottles of it. Finishes very quickly. Disappointed here, I would have thought the barrel aging would add MORE to it, not take away from the beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: roasted, sweet malt; bread; coffee; a bit of chocolate; bourbon is pretty mild. Pretty mild general bitterness.
Color: Dark brown, almost black; small tan head.
Taste: fairly sweet, mildly bitter.
Texture: oily/slightly slick. Carbonation slightly mild. Finish is long with roasted malt, Coffee, Chocolate;also sweet. Body is on the light side for a BB Stout.
Overall a mellow BB Stout; I like the combination of sweetness with roasted malt and coffee. The base stout is not a great one (a bit thin), but all in all there are enough different aromas here to add up to a fairly interesting beer.

Pours a dark black color with a woodsy, vanilla, alcohol aroma. Taste is roasted barley, espresso chocolate, and bourbon. Initially, the bourbon was fully discernable at first drink, then it melded into some smooth complex flavors. A nice bourbon aged beer.

Kindly shared by Jaghana. Couleur noire, très légère mousse. Nez de chêne, malt grillé, chocolat, vanille. Gout malt grillé, chocolat, note café crême et note reglisse. Fin amère grillée avec note de chêne, un peu trop en retrait pour le style. Mais pas mal!

Bottle 65cl, a dark beer with medium copper head. Nose is roasted malt, barrel and wood. Aroma is on roasted malt, dark coffee, medium creamy, light sour touch, vinous, some barrel notes, bit disappointed about the complexity. Correct beer, sour finish, old barrel notes, ok but not outstanding.

Good flavor from the start. Rich and delicious but not too thick. A good ABV for sipping moderately and enjoying a few.
