Pour is nearly pitch black with a fluffy khaki head. Nice bourbony nose, definitely not overpowering, thereís 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 Iíve 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.

Pours a very dark brown with a perfectly formed taupe head. Mildly smoky coffee nose. Pretty usual stout aromas. Mildly creamy and lightly scrubby texture. A soft bourbon flavor and coffee, with a short-lived, sweet vanilla that gives way to light sourwood.

Poured black with aromas of bourbon and coffee. Taste follows nose but with a subtle sweetness. Flavor of bourbon and coffee really comes through but not overpowering. Reminds me of a mellowed out version of bourbon county stout. Really good barrel aged stout. Will drink again.

This is definitely a unique stout. Aromas of chocolate and sweet cream. Sweet flavors come through first, milk chocolate, caramelized sugar, and toffee. Then breads, roasted nuts, raisins, brown sugar and whiskey. Vanilla aftertaste. Smooth, though lighter bodied than Iíd like.

Aroma Is alcohol, bourbon. Beautiful looking beer. Taste is mostly Smokey bourbon. Also some barley, coffee, pecans, . Maybe too much whiskey flavor.....not enough stout. Good beer nevertheless.

Tap. Dark pour with thick tan head. Smells of chocolate, dark malts and slight bourbon. Taste is a little light on the bourbon. Also seems a little thin for a stout

Poured a very dark brown, almost black, but not quite...with a moderate cardboard head. Aroma is seductive - bourbon, malts, coffee. The taste is likewise full and complex - roasted barley, coffee, just the right hint of bourbon, and a surprisingly refreshing, cola-esque finish. This is very, very good.

Dark cola pour with tan head. Nose is light coconut and oak barrel with gentle bourbon and roasted malt. Flavor is bitter chocolate and roast malt with subtle oak and coconut. Average mothfeel. Easy drinking barrel beer.

Light mouthfeel, big taste.
Coffee, chocolate, and quite sweet and spicy.
Like Dutch peperkoek.
I thought their oatmeal stout was just a little more complex, but a very good one from America again
