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.

HonkeyBra (3798) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2011
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.

That1Guy (2061) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Crushed with Honkeybra. No head. Thin black pour with a reddish tint when you hold it to the light. Aroma of tart cherries. A possible infection? Very thin-bodied, Decent flavor and goes down smoothly. Not incredible, but easy to drink.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle. Poured a deep rich black with a large light brown frothy head that lasted about 3/4 of the way though the glass and produced some really excellent lacing. The aroma was strong of burnt dark chocolate malts, a medium leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee, molasses, some chared oak and a mild dose of bourbon with a hint of vanilla. It tasted, (WOW) pretty awesome with a nice bitter coffee flavor from the onset and then slowly maturing into a nice chocolate, molasses, coffee medley with an ever so slight whiskey finish. Mouthfeel was kind of bold but not as full as I would have thought, more medium than full in body. The texture was absolutly smooth and creamy with a flat carbonation. Overall an outstanding stout, although I would have like a little more body and a tad more of the bourbon flavor.

GT2 (9410) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 13, 2011
355mL. Pours a clear deep ruby with a large, tan head. Spotty lace. Nose is malty, roast coffee. Ashy and roasty. Taste is coffee and tobacco. Richer than expected with ash and red fruitiness. Watery, tart mouthfeel. Not super great.

flatmatt (1289) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a light tan head. Aroma has lots of creamy, roasty coffee and cocoa. Flavor is quite roasty, strong coffee, a little vanilla, with some bourbon and oak hints. Definitely a very nice stout.

Slightly plastic-y bourbon nose with chocolate and milanese. The rate is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, slightly lactic, lots of milk chocolate.
