dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2011
(12oz bottle). Pousr near black with khaki head and small carbonation bubbles. Aroma has oak, chocolate, coffee, but Iím not getting much in the way of bourbon. Hmmm, brewed in Kentucky, but not much bourbon. Now, it smells fine, but it just doesnít smell like a bourbon barreled stout. Taste is roasty bitterness that is balanced by some sweetness. Medium to full bodied with a slick texture. Dry finish. This is actually a very nice beer, but I just donít get any bourbon. That its from Kentucky is what makes me shake my head.

LearninBeer (373) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2011
The aroma is licorice, coffee. Pours dark brown with a big light brown head, slowly diminishing, excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture a little creamy the carbonation fizzy and the finish bitter and a touch astringent. Iím hoping some aging will improve this beer.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2011
Appearance: blacks with a brown bubbly spritely head which pops and dissipates quickly. Thin bubbly collar which, when swirled, lingers with creamy crema hues.
Nose: bourbon hits in the front, middle and back Ė bourbon everywhere with spice, vanillin, and charred oak barrels. Maple and molasses. Dark fruits are hidden in the back and soaked in bourbon, of course. Prunes and dates along the edges. Carries a rustic air of old farmhouses and barns worn with age, time, and weather. Quick hit of red apple must in the middle.
Palate: medium-light and bourbon centric. Vanillin, maple, and dry spice comingling with oak planks, oak barrels, and generic woods. Apples and grapes in the middle. Bourbon soaks dark fruits underneath Ė dates, prunes, raisins. Dry spice and oak lingers atop tongue with vanillin.
Final Thoughts: obviously unbalanced thanks to the assertive bourbon but being a bourbonholic myself, I donít quite mind. If youíre looking for subtle than she may not be your dram but for those bourbon freaks like me, have your dram and enjoy it too.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - APR 6, 2011
Pours black, aroma is woody, smoky, with some roasted malt. Taste is chocolate and caramel with light smoke and a bit of booze. Pretty solid but not outstanding.

Nothing like picking up a bottle tick then checking the review to see a c+, this will be yummy! 12oz bottle in August 2010, poured into my Darkness glass...The lightest shade of black with dark brown fringes. A really light tan head rises a full finger then disappears to a thin ring, no lacing...Light and boring aroma that is very malty at first, chocolate syrup mostly. The syrup has really generic qualities that are not appealing at all. I canít tell this was barrel aged, no typical indicators...The taste is horrendous, light chocolate syrup poured into a glass of water that then was used as an ashtray. The feel is super light, very water like. There are no redeeming qualities to this beer, it should be avoided.

BelgianBeerGal (3137) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Bottle picked up in Nashville over Christmas. Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a nice dark brown head. Very active carbonation. Aroma is sweet malt and a hint of bitter chocolate with vanilla. Decent flavor until the finish where it closes with some disjointed, cold coffee bitterness. Yeah it was okay but the bourbon notes were muted at best.

Decent beer that doesnít do anything fantastic in particular, but does a few things well. Nice aroma, can detect vanilla and chocolate with hints of bourbon and coffee. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head, little lace left behind. Minimal carbonation, slides across the tongue with ease. Dry, slightly burnt coffee finish.
