Thanks to Hammy78 for this one! Pours a dark brown with almost no head except for a small ring and some lacing. Nose is of big old bourbon, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. It feels really rich. Taste is sweet, boozy and again features coconut bourbon, caramel and chocolate. Body is medium, mouthfeel surprisingly thinner than I think it should be and carbonation moderate. I really enjoyed this one, makes me curious to try other CW "Brewer’s Reserve" offerings.

Fresh this is big and bold, lots of cocoa, bourbon, and vanilla. After a year, the alcohol mellows out and it becomes nice and smooth.

Good BA stout. Black pour pour thin tan head. Vanilla and chocolate cake batter aroma hint of barrel. Lots of chocolate with vanilla then nice volume of Bourbon and oak. Dry finish. Medium body light carbonation. Not bad.

Vanilla extract, candy bar cake aroma. Dessert wine boozy aroma, sweet but not fruity. Boozy taste doesn't disappoint. Sweet beer, almost a dessert beer. Creme brûlée taste. Really taste the bourbon on the finish. Delicious reserve, could age for a few years.

Bottle pour. Black. Thin beige head. Aroma is cake batter, vanilla extract and booze. Taste is sweet, but not cloying, vanilla of course, some berries, and sherry. Viscous.

bottle pour, black stout, thin beige head, aromas of coffee, cocoa, and bourbon-- really great stuff here, flavors of all of the above, a smooth well balanced brew. Not overly complex but better than many at twice the price!

Must try if you like this style. Everything that you look for in this style is there. Without any negatives like to much alcohol burn or to much woody oak flavor. It’s good get some.

Camons (5987) - Hasselager, DENMARK - APR 14, 2014
Bottle @ Maxi. Pours brown with a small offwhite head. Aroma of malt, light coffee, loads of bourbon, oak, coconut, vanilla, dark chocolate. Flavor of malts, coffee, caramel, heavy bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark chocolate, coconut. Thin to mdium body, lively carbonation. Somehow over the top on the bourbon, but not to bad for someone like me who likes bourbon. 110414
