Bottle from bleeng at May Tasting. Pours a very dark brown almost black with a medium frothy light tan head with good sticky lacing. The aroma is coffee and light roast. Thin mouthfeel with oak and light smokey finish. A decent stout from Bluegrass.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 Grosse note de vanille, d’espresso et de chêne en bouche. Plutôt onctueux avec beaucoup d’effervescence. Arrière goût de carton qui gâche un peu le profil.

Hint of bourbon goes down smooth. Great aroma full bodied thick beer. Very good beer.

Deep black with a thin tan head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is vanilla, bourbon with slight roasted malt. Flavor is vanilla and alcohol, some bourbon mixed with roasted malt. Finish is a bit light and almost watery. Lacking in full body that I would expect in a porter, big flavor up front without anything to round it out. Not bad, but not great.

This was pretty much everything i expected. Dark, thick and sticky with a nice alcohol taste with roast, chocolate, wood and burbon. Good stuff.

Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is very nice and quite complex. I get a lot of bourbon as well as some chocolate, vanilla, maple and dark fruit. The flavor is just as complex. The chocolate and roasted malt come through very strong, but the flavor also has all of the components you expect from a bourbon barrel aged beer. I get some bourbon whiskey notes as well as some maple, oak and vanilla. Medium to thick mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation. A very nice barrel-aged stout. Glad I got to try this one.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours black with a thick, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, a little oak and bourbon, hints of coffee, and some light hops. A pretty good beer, but I wish it was thicker.

Crushed with CaryTheDude. Aroma . . . Meh. Chocolate and mild funky earthy barrel. Flavor is chocolate, oak, onions, earth, shallots. Lots of earthy undertones, but pretty one dimensional in the same vein. Mouthfeel is thin, I guess this is only a barrel aged stout and not an imperial stout but it’s still startlingly thin. I’m glad I didn’t have to drink a whole bottle of this by myself.

Slightly clear dark brown pour. Fluffy light tan head. Sweet stout with some roasted malt and a touch of smoke. Bitter finish. Nothing special.
