Oakes (13594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2006
Near black colour with a big head. Quite fizzy, obscuring some chocolatey accents. Mainly malty with light chocolate but I canít move past the fizz (I never can).

Just another fantastic bottle from Acknud. Or so I expect. Here goes: Poured really black with quit a dark tan head. Itís the aroma of smooth burnt toasted malt. Full bodied with almost chewy carbonation. Flavor is suggestive of those expensive Paradox barrel stouts. Notes of chocolate, wood, bourbon and vanilla. Whoops. I just figured out why barrel is in the name. Finishes smooth and somewhat astringent - or maybe thatís my mouth trying to suck up the last flavor bits from my gums. Seriously, it is very good. Right in there with the Paradox and arguably much above Old Engine Oil Special Reserve. Hoosiers definitely rule.

(12/19/05 22oz bottle, thanks BBB63) Enormous brown head atop a black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, vanilla/bourbon, light wood. Taste is moderately sweet, vanilla/bourbon, beneath which is buried light milk chocolate. Over-carbonated light-medium body. The beer is not strong enough to stand up to the bourbon barrel. (6/3/5/2/10)

Bottle shared at local BA gathering. Poured a clear dark brown color with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roast coffee, chocolate and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Another good smooth brew.
