Smells like wet bourbon barrel with softer dark malts, pretty boozy. Dark brown pour, no head or lace. Looks still. Tons ofu bourbon. Chocolate, vanilla, burnt sugars, bourbon. Super damn hot like sitting in a wet ass bourbon barrel forever. Burns my mouth almost. Carb is low, body is thin. Beer is hot! Wow.

Capped nip with a flying buffalo label and the a neck band that says bourbon barrel aged...based on previous ratings I’m going to guess this is the correct beer. Thanks Alex. Boozey tobacco, chared malt, some apple, vanilla...hot smelling and dirty danky. Prune cola, light body, lively carb, leather, tobacco, vanilla, hot wet bourbon...it burns.

GT2 (9241) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 29, 2010
355mL courtesy of FlandersNed. Pours a deep brown, pitch black looking in the glass with a lively, super thin, deep brown head that sticks around and leaves spotty lace. Aroma is very nice: toasted coconut, vanilla, warming alcohol, campfire wood, brown sugar/caramel, black cherries. Taste is sweet, roasty, some hot alcohol. Soft, creamy palate that disintegrates a little bit into cardboardy dryness.

I can see how some would say this beer has way too much bourbon and isn’t balanced at all. That person would call this a hot mess. Well, I guess that’s just what I like. An in your face Bourbon stout that doesn’t pull any punches. wow!!!!!!!!

2009 edition. Small nip bottle (it says 355 ml, but the bottle is tiny, more like 7-8 ounces no way 12). Bottle thanks to FlandersNed. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. A great nose; sweet cocoa, bourbon, sweet vanilla, more bourbon. The flavor is great; initial cocoa and milky chocolates, rich vanilla and sweet bourbon, light sweeter malts. Rich and big. A great imperial stout. Tastes old somehow. Light mouthfeel .

TheEpeeist (3488) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2010
12 oz bottle, brewed 2005. Dark brown with some creamy tan edging. Nose is bourbon, dark chocolate and vanilla with a touch of tar. Coating with a bracing tang. Prominent alcohol but not objectionable. Taste starts with a slap of bourbon; woody, prunes, dates and chocolate but not so sweet. Finishes with citrus peel, tobacco and burnt sugar. Great barrel aging.
