Tmoney99 (11694) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2010
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.

douglas88 (6942) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 23, 2010
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.

jeremytoni (3011) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2010
From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a small amount of head. Strong sweet toasted malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

kbutler1 (1377) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2010
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.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2010
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.

Tampa Weekly Gathering @BT WesleyChapel-12oz bottle-pours a thin brown head and dark brown color. Aroma is bourbon/wood, dark malt-molasses. Taste is bourbon/wood, dark malt-molasses/vanilla. Easy.

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2010
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.

crusianbeer (116) - Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2010
bottle from some place in KY near Cincinnati, pours like mentos in a bottle of coke. Takes 5 pours to get a glass. smells like watered down cheap bourbon... and nothing else. Tastes pretty much the same, watered down bourbon... the bourbon is supposed to accentuate the stout, not be the primary, nor is it supposed to cover a crappy stout. There are tiny hints of a stout trying desperately to creep out of it, but Hey, lets hop on the bourbon train and try to sell a lot of crappy mistakes. mouthfeel, not much there, kinda like soda water... no thickness, large carbonation tastes like it was artificially carbonated. not good.
