COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
**NOTE** This entry is for the bourbon barrel aged version only. The Jack Daniels whiskey barrel aged version is under separate entry in the database.

Batch 1 (June 2010): 7-months in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels
2012 Release - Aged 11 months in Blanton’s Barrels.

As dark as the legend of Blackbeerd himself, behold the Imperial Stout. Sweet malts battle roasted grain on the decks of yer tongue. Like a blast from a cannon, hop are followed by smoked malt.

Keg @ Brewvival 2014. As ’Blanton’s Blackbeerd’. Brown pour with no head whatsoever. Mellow smoky nose. Vanilla and bourbon-soaked wood. Chocolate and dark roasted coffee. Earthy mineral and ashy notes. Dark chocolate, smoked tea. Cream and coffee ice cream. Supple and oily. Quite solid.

2012 barrel aged bottle. Pours a deep black with a mocha cream like head that hugs my glass. The aroma is of sweet bourbon, wood, vanilla, toasted malts, soft chocolate scents, and a mild coconut aroma. In tasting I noticed a pleasant bitter cocoa flavor, soft to moderate intensity of sweet bourbon, with sweet carmelized malts, and a light roasted malt character. The finish has a balance between alcohol and a sugary sweetness with a soft bitterness. Overall I am very impressed with this beverage. It was very flavorful with defined tasting notes. The Blackbeerd was also very drinkable and was kind to my palate. I would kindly welcome this beverage again.

Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #72. Draft at Brewvival. Pours an inky dark brown color with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, wood, vanilla, bourbon. The taste is big bourbon notes, vanilla, wood, chocolate, roasted malts, herbal hops. Quite nice.

Pour is jet black with a bubbly brown head. Notes of brown sugar and caramel on the nose, dark chocolate, a little coffee, oak, and subtle vanilla. Very sweet taste, lots of oak, light bourbon notes, caramel and molasses, brown sugar, dark roasted coffee, and dark fruits. Not bad, though I feel like there isn’t much barrel character coming through.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 19, 2014
2013 release. Bottle thanks to icehawk ! Pours a deep black color with a solid finger of thick khaki foam that sticks nicely. The nose is big cocoa puff, deep bakers chocolate laced bourbon, underlying burnt brownie and smokey salted caramel. The palate follows with nice balance between sweetness and booze. Lots of layers of sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, cola, licorice and bitter coffee roast. Nice traces of bourbon on the finish.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Rating 600. 2013 release. Pitch black pour with brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, alcohol. Big slightly chewy mouthfeel. Black licorice and vanilla. Alcohol burn on the tonque, and warms the whole body. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with an alcohol bite. Great drinkability.

2012, black waxed, Blanton’s barrels. on draft at Brewvival but rated from the bottle purchased at the release. pours a rich, dense black that sits oily in the glass capped by a razor thin, dark khaki, head. aroma is excellent with rich chocolate brownies, gingersnap cookies, dark roasted malts, and toasted coconut backed by smoked wood, ash, dark fruits, and just a hint of bourbon. flavor is wonderful as well with more barrel notes of vanilla, coconut, toasted wood, and spiced bourbon coming forward ahead of chocolate malts, graham crackers, maple, and coffee with dense, smokey roast on the back end. palate is rich and full bodied with minimal carbonation and a lingering, dry finish of spirits and cocoa. overall, probably the best version of BA Blackbeerd to date. well done.

It has a good roasted malt base but it also has an overbearing sweetness that lingers.
