Sampled at Stone’s Oakquinox 2010. Pours black with practically no head at all. Aroma of earthy roasted malts with light booze in the nose. Flavor has dark semi-burnt malt tones, barrel, and some syrupy sweetness. Surprisingly light mouthfeel but quite smooth. (11, 290)

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2010
Guest tap at DLD 2010. Pours pitch black with small tan head. Aromas of bourbon, sweet chocolate, dark fruits, light coffee and some booze. Flavors of bourbon, chocolate, booze, some dark fruits, and just a smidge of coffee. Mouthfeel was thick and oily. Can really taste the bourbon barrel in this one. Big flavorful stout.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 20, 2010
On draft at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens for Oakquinox (Escondido, CA): Pours blackest black and topped with an extremely thin, bubbly tan head. Nose of bourbon, charred oak, caramel malts, vanilla, light black coffee, and milk chocolate. Flavors are similar. Silky mouthfeel, a bit thin at times, and a smooth drying finish coupled with light heat. Drinkability: Fairly out of the ordinary. Pairing: Flat iron steak marinated in aged Irish whiskey. Rebuy: Yes. #415 on 20042010, DG.

Draught. Black with nonexistent head. Aroma of bourbon, very sweet chocolate, leather, light coffee and some notes of fruit (pear). Taste is sweet chocolate, boozy bourbon, very rich almost creamy. Palate is oily and has medium carbonation. Exceptional, and in my mind better than plain black tot.

BeerandBlues2 (9601) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Draught at Avery. Pours opaque with a low, fizzy light tan head, some lacing with low retention. Aroma is heavy dark malt (cookie, toast) with vanilla, oak, prune, dates, and chocolate. Flavor is malty with dark fruity esters, vanilla, cocoa, and dates. Full bodied, medium carbonation, and dry finish with a light alcohol warmth.
