ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2016 33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark brown with a very short-lived tan, bubbly head. Aroma is chocolate, raisins, prunes, alcohol, oak. Taste is more of the same - very Christmassy notes with quite a heavy whiskey presence but very little of the typical buttery vanilla notes you expect with a bourbon barrel aged stout. Very little bitterness to detract from the rich flavours on offer here.

Clownoisseur (416) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle, poured into a snifter glass. Near black with a small brown head that fades to some spots of lacing. Aromas of wet oak, bourbon, slight char, roasted barley, vanilla, hints of coffee..hint of green peppers and olives. Taste is loaded with bourbon/oak upfront! Followed closely by notes of char/roasted barley, light chocolate, bitter coffee, molasses and light vanilla. Medium/heavy bodied with low carbonation. Finish is pretty warming with some sticky-sweet molasses, more bourbon/oak and bitter coffee. Solid beer.

MacBoost (1735) - Penfield, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Courtesy toss via Pepe. 33cl. Pours a thin looking almost black color with little to no head. Nose is bourbon and roasted malt. Slight coffee and some burnt cereal. Taste is sweet, sweet, sweet. Some subdued barrel notes and a lighter roast but holy shit is this a sugary bastard. This is one unapologetic beer.

lillunken (61) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
Flaska (2013) på Pipes of Scotland, Uppsala. Svart öl, nästan utan skum. Underbar doft av främst Bourbon och vanilj. Väldigt len munkänsla med smak av Bourbon, vanilj, lite värmande alkohol, beska och svagt rostade toner. Mycket god!

Bulk_Carrier (3539) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Back of the bottle reads 07/01/14. This was poured into a mini snifter. The appearance poured like jet fuel and had a dark brown color close to black color with a slim concave little head. Trickling light lacing roams around the glass. The smell started off with a sharp bourbon sweet/light hot weaving some light cocoa and coffee. The taste was sweet through the bourbon and then the cocoa and coffee combine nicely. A sharp yet sticky bourbon to coffee aftertaste leads into a sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. The carbonation was pretty mild but that didn’t bother me as I look at the date. Smooth roasty coffee tones roll over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a superb bourbon barrel RIS that I would love to have again.
