UNCCTF (477) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Definite bourbon palate, especially if you let it warm up a little. Great balanced finish.

tectactoe (2055) - Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Tap @ Bluegrass: Almost black with dark brown trim, a thin khaki collar outlines the top of the brew. Aroma with some mild roasted malts, toasted nuttiness, faint wood & a definitive, albeit not overpowering tannic presence. A touch of vanilla (maybe from the barrel) with a touch of ash. Flavor is sweeter than expected; some lightly syrupy molasses notes, dark cocoa, a bit of vanilla, overly roasted coffee beans, & some slight boozy oak towards the finish for a touch of robustness. Aftertaste mouth coating of dry coffee grounds & mild wood. A tad thin but pretty nice.

Nose is woody, slight mints. black with a light brown head. taste is more stout than barrel, a dark chocolate almost dark roast coffee flavor, but with a touch of booze, but very faint. meh.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter deep auburn brown with a thin white head. Aroma is roasted coffee bourbon. Flavor is initially fantastic. Caramel, brown sugar, bourbon, roasted malts but fades quickly. Maybe its an older bottle (?) Absolutely no booziness here for a 8.9%. Moderate carbonation thin to the mouth. Would like to try again with a fresh brew-not a bad brew at all.

Palidor19 (2973) - Brandon, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Nice and dark with a small, decent amount of nutty, and dark malts. No hop bitterness and only a mild carbonated fizz, still good and still strong to drink careful ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"via Thomassova. Christened the new house with this brew. Looks good on the pour. The aroma and flavor is significantly different than most barreled stouts i’ve had. Not a good thing really, but not bad either. Less booze, vanilla, and bourbon. More chocolatey, smoke, and a hint of tang which I though took away from an otherwise excellent brew. The luscious, smooth feel was the beers strong point."

nick76 (4238) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
The aroma is weak for a beer of this kind with toasted malt, coffee, and a small hint of bourbon barrel aging. The appearance is brown with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall not much here to impress or disappoint.

Good mixture of the level of flavors. Strong chocolate with coffee and Carmel after taste. Just a hint of bourbon. Not as dry as some other syouts
