   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
KajII (782) - 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.

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 (2954) - 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 (4223) - 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

jbruner (2328) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours an inky black from the bottle with minimal tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma is vanilla, sweet barreled goodness, hint of soy. Taste is lighter, kind of dry stout with hints of vanilla and wood. Alcohol is well hidden, but otherwise falls a little short of good.

cmiller54hr (45) - Manitou, Kentucky, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Pours jet black with minimal head. Definite smell of bourbon. Chocolate and toffee with hint of bourbon on the taste. Overall, a very good stout

12 ounce bottle. Rich thick stout with nice overall chocolate notes. Decent overall.
