Thanks to Tmac220 for sharing this with me! Bottle. Poured a deep, dark brown with minimal brown head. Aroma was bourbon with perhaps a little caramel and coffee. The flavor followed with some good chocolate in there, as well. This was very good. Get in my belly!!

Bottle sample at tasting from backlog notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige film. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, mild bourbon notes, vanilla, pretty basic stuff, not, great but not bad either.

DrewFace (760) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours a deep dark blackish color. Sweet aroma, some barrel and whiskey like notes, vanilla, almost a peanut/nutty character as well. Very sweet in the flavor as well, more of the sweet nutty almost to a point of being tart character. Alcohol is present. Not sure about this one.

Experiment_Ale (988) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2013
12oz bottle at my place with Taylor Thomas and Scott. Pours black with grey lacing that lasts. Aroma of bourbon with a sterol edge. Taste is bourbon and vanilla. Finish is long with bourbon. Good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

7/25/13 bottle given to me by Mike (from Michigan) first bottle drank from the pro/am trade. Not a bad barrel aged stout. Hates the wax bottle cover. Nice bourbon. Lots of chocolate taste in the front then roll in the booze ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a sweet bourbon vanilla aroma. Goes down smooth. Solid barrel ages imperial. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ICEatALAMO (923) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle. The pour is almost black. The aroma is strong of bourbon and sweetness. The taste is milder on the bourbon than the smell. Drinks a little thin, but good, not great. An easy to drink bourbon impy.

jcartamdg (1933) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pours black with no head. Aroma of bourbon, oak and vanilla. Taste is boozy, lots of bourbon and vanilla. A bit medicinal on the finish. Thin body. Not bad but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jhulett (12) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Everything I look for in a bourbon stout, except the body is too thin. Nice heavy bourbon taste. I look forward to more offerings like this from Arcadia. I bought a second bottle to age, but I have a feeling I will drink it before it gets too old.

Bottle. A little underwhelming. I was expecting a bit more given how good Shipwrecked and BA Cereal Killer are. All the usual suspects in the taste and nose. Light on vanilla and fairly thin. Had this a few beers into the day so maybe the palate was a little off but I don't think this one will improve with age. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has sweet caramely/roastiness and bourbon. Flavor is very bourbony and sweet. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the finish is bourbony and very pleasantly warming.
