“Jim” as in “Jim Beam”. I’ve simply taken a used Beam barrel and aged our oatmeal stout in it for about 2 weeks. I then filled it into casks and tapped it on our hand pump (you know what that’s all about right?)

I had this beer on cask at the brewpub in August 2008. It had a roasty, coffee and chocolate malt aroma, with a noticeable bourbon scent, and a slight touch of oak; some hops for balance. The beer had a loose black color with a very faint, creamy, light tan head, that had some cling but little retention. The flavor was sweet and malty and had a good presence of bourbon. A bit too watery, and slightly on the thin side, with a touch of creamyness and lower levels of carbonation. Good character in this beer, but not an exceptional brew.

Cask. Black with red hues. Head is rimming and small, white. Nose is roast, oak and lots of bourbon. Tastes of bourbon with a bit of stout. Thin and alcoholic. Seems that the regular stout didn’t hold up to the barrel aging. Maybe just a bit too small of a beer for such a task. Tasty, though, just not stellar.

First cask beer I’ve tried. Evident aroma of Jim Beam from the Schifferstadt Stout base. Alcohol appears to bite more than it actually does. Not a big fan of the liquor mix in the beer, however, I’m glad I tried it. Served at about 55 degrees fahrenheit in warm glass.

Cask... Black ale with a small, whispy, tan head. The aroma and flavor are both pretty thin and nondeScript with mild notes of cocoa and bourbon. Light to medium-bodied and mostly watery with pillow-soft carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet, then dry. Disappointing.
