This is the Jill's Extra Stout that was on tap back in March of this year. We took a portion of that batch and aged it 100 days in both Pappy VanWinkle 15 year and 23 year old Bourbon Barrels. The residual bourbon in the barrels and oaky and vanilla tones from the wood itself contribute to this beer's rich and roasty flavor.

On tap in Louisville, I forget the name of the pub. Nice, creamy thick body with rich sweet flavors of molasses, caramel and vanilla. Oaky, boozy aroma and finish. Nice thick head, a lot of fun and a nice change.

tap at the brewpub. Pours black with red on the edges & a fat gray head that had a large clear bubble sticking out of it like a big fish eye that I watched for a few minutes until it popped. Smells of chocolate syrup, licorice, raisins, a bit of alcohol. Taste is strong raisin, with chocolate, and some fudge notes. Very sweet. Sticky finish with a cocoa & raisin finish with a lot of licorice. This is too cloying for me. Ap-3 ar-6 tas-5 pal-2 ov-11

Draught at the brewpub. Opaque black with foamy tan head. Complex, attractive nose with vanilla, brown sugar, chocolate, and bourbon. Kind of like chocolate chip cookie dough with a bit of bourboun mixed in. Flavor is equally alluring, again with the chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla, but also an assertive, but not cloying, oak note. Roasty and slightly sweet finish. Good to the last drop.
