3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black pour with a small, tan head. The aroma is slightly alcoholic with mild notes of chocolate, roast, oats, smoky bourbon and a vegetal overtone. The flavor is spoiled fruit, bourbon, alcohol, chocolate and day old coffee. The body is oily, medium-thin with moderate carbonation and some alcohol burn.

Draft. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that was that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Solid roasted coffee, wood and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted chocolate flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good and my expectations where met.

Solid black, creamy tan head fades slowly. Aroma of caramel, some fungus and bourbon. Taste is nice, lots of chocolaty malt and light bourbon. Medium body, slick texture. Not as much bourbon coming through as I thought there would be.

Bottle shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours black with a gray brown head that dissipated rapidly to the edges. Aroma strong barrel notes with bourbon and wood coming through with a dark grain backing. Flavor is quite thin with strong bourbon and wood but can’t get over the thinness.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a pure black color with a medium beige head. A sweet heavily roasted nose, some slight sour dark fruits. The flavor is pretty much a simple stout; some ash, roasted malts, very light vanilla from the bourbon. Earthy charcoal in the finish. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown almost black color with a dark tan head that settles down to a thin head that collars around the glass. The aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, and slight bourbon. Medium mouthfeel. Roasty, coffee, dark chocolate, with a slight bourbon note but not really overly strong. Not bad, the body isn’t as heavy as I would like for a beer like this. The bourbon is pretty minimal as well. Pretty easy drinking though. For a stout it is good but as a barrel aged stout it is lackluster.

Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours ruby red chocolate with thin mocha head. The aroma is rich and yummy with toffee, caramel, coconut, chocolate and mildly roasted coffee beans. Very nice. The taste is smooth with roasted malts, some tart malt astingency as well as full firm sweet vanilla, toffee, coconut and smooth bourbon too. Very nice but a bit on the barrel heavy side.

Bouteille partagée avec Jcwattsrugger.
Noire et mousse moka claire.
Bourbon est la ou il faut, avec des notes de café et chocolat, le bourbon ressort un peu trop en intensité gâchant un peu le côté stout de cette bière. Impression de chocolat au lait, sec au palais avec des notes de chêne et de bourbon.
