A barrel aged stout brewed with chocolate and roasted malts, black strap molasses and dark Belgian candy sugar, then aged for 8 months in Heaven Hills Bourbon barrels and Pinot Noir barrels. Now over 13 months old, the layers of flavors are just starting to unfold. Dark sweet chocolate, coffee, Bourbon and molasses with hints of vanilla greet you in the nose. Dark coffee and bitter-sweet chocolate intermingle with the roasted malts and dark molasses to finish with a noticeable Bourbon heat and a lingering sweet, dark vanilla finish. Look for notes of milk chocolate, coconut and cherry as it warms up.

Tap at the barrel house as Vintage Diesel #2. Pours really dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is very chocolate, and maybe a little coffee. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate, touch/hint of coffee, dark treacle, burnt malt. Pretty smooth. Finishes slightly earthy, slightly sweet, dark chocolate. Very nice.

On tap at Cascade, pours black with a medium creamy brown head. Aroma brings out rich molasses, vanilla and bourbon barrels - very decadent. Flavour is similarly decadent, with big notes of roasted malt, molasses, bourbon, vanilla and candied sugar. Extraordinarily complex, with a finish of chocolate and vanilla beans. Awesome bourbon impie.

On tap at Baileys Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour...basically black but dark brown at the edges. Nose...very figgy with dark raisins, currants, cassis and baked molasses. Palate...generous CO2 with a whole mess o’ Bourbon up front. More molasses come forward and mingles with sailor jack, kirsch and marzipan infused dark chocolate. The booze makes its presence known all around the palate and a tangy, burnt sugar bitterness lingers on the finish.

Holiday Ale festival 2012 - Big dark black impy stout. Huge dark malt flavors lots of chocolate and coffee and lingering bourbon. This was a super tasty beer. Great Job.

On tap at HAF. Consumed on a fresh palate (and in a glass I brought with me because screw plastic mugs.) A: Thick sludgy motor oil from a broken down Chevy. heavy mocha cream head, and some slowly drifting legs. Yeah, this is a perfect look. N: Caramel, vanilla, fudge, dark chocolate, oak, and bourbon that goes on for days. Some grassy elements in the background along with some dark fruit. T: Brown sugar, bourbon, fudge, chocolate, and vanilla. This is very well balanced bedtween stout and barrel. A little roasted malt, some faint coffee whisps, and ample licorice. Has a pleasant grainy quality. M: Could be a touch heavier here, but the alcohol is very well hidden. O: Incredible balance and depth from a sour producer. I have to say I’m impressed and would definitely buy this if it were released in bottles.

Tap @ Holiday Ale Fest 2012... Poured pitch black with a light brown head. Aroma had lots of barrel notes consisting of whiskey alcohol and brandy. Thick mouthfeel. Characters of roast, cocoa and some of that booziness from the nose coming through. Also notes of vanilla, oaked whiskey. Quite smooth. Nice to see these guys doing a barrel aged, un-infected beer.
