#1500 !! On draft at R & H. Pours a pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of bourbon, dark silky chocolate, malt and peppers. Taste of bourbon, silky dark chocolate, baking cocoa, malt and hot spicy peppers. Interesting stuff.

Tap at Rattle n Hum: Opaque pour with a deep dark brown head. Big aroma- some bourbon presence but it’s soft and oaky rather than boozy and abrasive. Creamy chocolate, thick caramel and a touch of peat. Quite toasted in it’s oaky character. Creamy dense body. Soft vanilla from the oak with notes of fudge followed by tons of peppery notes on the back. The pepper presence is resiny and not too hot. Residual dry oak and roast resonate in the finish. An awesome barrel-aged stout.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 Clark’d this shit from Woodshop like a pro. Actually, not as bad as the high ratings lead me to believe. Yeah, lots of bourbon that cover up any trace of the peppers, cinnamon and chocolate nibs. Still though, nicely barreled and lacking the chalkiness that I get from most CCB stouts.

On tap at RnH. Black with dark brown ring. Cocoa coffee dark fruit licorice and wood aroma. Rich chocolate cocoa syrup coffee dark fruit vanilla cinnamon and wood with creeping pepper burn in the finish. Rich complex and burning. Overwhelmingly complex, like a pizza with everything on it, when your favorite pizza is just pepperoni.

32oz "growler" from Chris Q’s awesomeness. Huge thanks! Black color. A bit of booziness. Strong bite in the taste. A spicy bite that lingers in the back of the throat. Oh that’s right, doesn’t this have some kind of pepper in it? The body leans heavy. Barrel aging is subdued but good. No oxidation. Very good.

Tap at Rattle and Hum. big bourbon nose. Nicely carbed. a bit rough on the throat, reminds you that you are alive.  a touch  of sweetness  weird but delicious peppery bite. Sweet peppery full bodied outrageous.

Growler. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malty and light chocolate note, solid bourbon accents coming through. Fruity and spiced flavoured. Dark roasted malty and light herbal. Mild vanilla note. All swept in bourbon notes. Smooth and dark malty into a lingering and lasting finish.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2010 Draft, well i wondered a lot why put this beer in a bourbon barrel with the base beer with such dramatic complexity i figured it would ruin a lot of the good but strangely this seemed to work. Pours a black body with a yellow white head. Peppers, bourbon, cinnamon, and vanilla notes. Just mouth watering. Chocolate peppers, with a mild malty sweetness some light roasted body hints of vanilla sweetness quickly dried up the mild heat of the peppers. Its astounding what can i say. 4.6 per the notes

Im going to have to knock this down significantly based on my second time having it, there was a serious apple (acetyladehyde) tone to this beer that just destroyed it for me. 3.5 Ave 4.0

Tap @ Rattle n’ Hum. Poured black with a little bit of legs. Big vanilla and bourbon aroma. Sweet roasted malt and some brown sugar base and balance it. The flavor starts with vanilla followed by big roasted malt and then a bourbon finish. Roasty and very warming but no alcohol taste. My only issue is I personally like a full sticky body on my IS and this ones dries out, which is more of a plus for many people. I liked it so much I ordered it 3 times.

Growler at Woodshop 5.0, courtesy of cquiroga. Thanks, Chris! Pours a dense, dark black color at the core; oily brown edges; thin, medium-brown head with patchy, fine-bubbled lacing. Gorgeous notes of cinnamon, roasted / charred malts, and softly bitter chocolate in the aroma; excellent, tempered nose. Medium-to-full body: loads of coffee, roasted and charred malts, and bitter chocolate; again, the cinnamon note is persistent and lovely, but the barrel character actually slightly muddle the overall character of the (phenomenal) original beer; lovely still, hugely drinkable and pleasant, with that characteristic peppery spiciness; awesome beer. Love the peppers and cinnamon; light barrel notes. Lasting finish of dark chocolate, roasted malts; great cinnamon spicing. My final new beer of Woodshop 5.0. Thanks so much, Chris.
