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.

Everything a stout should be but less. Or something like that. Has a nice bitterness built into the flavor, but tastes a little thin. Maybe Iíd try it again.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Thanks to bleeng for this beer. Pours a dark brown, with thin brown head. Nose of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa and coffee. Fizzy mouthfeel. Flavor is weak coffee, a bit thin. Not bad, not great.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2011
12oz bottle from a random trade at Dark Lord Day. Pours a black body with a big, two finger-width, dense and foamy, dark brown head that collapses slowly and leaves a solid lacing throughout. Aroma is big on the grainy coffees with a good amount of wood, some chocolate, dark fruits, roasts with a light char, and vanilla-bourbon. Flavor is similar. Lots of grainy coffees, roasts, dark chocolate, and dry wood up front. Some vanilla-bourbon, dark fruits, burnt wood, and a milky chocolate sweetness as well. Finishes dry and oaky with a good amount of roasts, vanilla-bourbon, and a light chocolate sweetness that leaves a medium-light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and higher, lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid barrel-aged stout. Has a nice, roasty and dry, woody bourbon flavor that remains well balanced with a pleasant chocolate sweetness. Not the most complex, but enjoyable.

bhensonb (11921) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours pretty dark brown/black with a bubbly/foamy tan head. Aromas of oak char, chocolate and bourbon/vanilla. Near med body. The flavor is very oak and smoke - and burnt wood. Thereís some vanilla and chocolate. A less than sturdy stout aged in oak. Still pretty good.

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Some roast, a little oak slight vanilla. Appearance- Opaque black with some creamy tan head. Flavor- Pretty dry perception due to roasthints of bittersweet chocolate and some oak. Canít seem to detect much bourbon. Bitter finish with a slight papery after taste.

magsinva (923) - Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2011
bottle - aroma is a nutty chocolate. I pickup a little of the bourbon when it is closer to room temperature, but not when itís cold. pours a deep dark brown with a thin tan head. It feels a little disjointed, sometimes its bitter other sweet. Overall itís drinkable.
