3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour from the Federal in Durham. The bartender was kind enough to split a pint in two for my wife and I after dinner. Poured dark brown, nearly black with a thin tan head. Nose is sweet and bourbon-y: vanilla, oak, and light fruit. Chocolate malts. Not the darkest, maltiest stout by any means, and the whiskey barrels dominate. Good if thatís your thing. I found it a bit sweet and less complex than I desired.

Aromas of chocolate, cherries, smoky tar, and coffee. Black with a quickly diminishing, tan head. Some sweetness with perceptible strength, and well balanced bitterness. Full bodied, creamy, and sticky, carbonation is low, and finishes showcasing a strong and well balanced character.

Bottle. Pours black with dissipating khaki head. Aroma is bourbon and chocolate. Flavor is dominated by the same. Coffee note does make an appearance though. Not bad but nothing special.

Smooth, this beer has echoes of a heavier, maltier beer than what it really is. Itís addictive in the fact that itís so easy drinking and unoffensive to the point that you just canít stop drinking it. Itís grainy, bleeding with bourbon flavors, and I honestly think that the feel of this beer is made up more of its barrel aging effects that it seems like a heavier beer than it is. Not so heavy on roasted malts, itís very easy to drink and still complex enough to impress your socks off. Modest, but awesome.

Bottle thanks to Andy! Pours black with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong roasted malt note with some bitter chocolate a hint of coffee and a bourbon backing. Flavor starts with dark grains that grow in roasted malts and has a boozy bourbon finish.

Bottle from Wegmans Sterling - cork says best buy mar 2013í which is weird for a style that ages well - pours pitch with several fingers of head. Aroma has nice whiskey notes which donít become overwhelming when it warms, has vanilla from the oak, and has a nice subtle malted chocolate base. Taste is sweet with the alcohol present, but acts as a nice understated warm mouth feel, which is surprising for a 10% ABV brew. Overall, very nice! Iím excited to see what else they produce.
