Tap at Hair of the Dog in Portland. Pours very dark brown/black with no head. Aroma of very dark treact, hint of smoke, hint of vanilla. Full + bodied. Flavor is bourbon/treacle. Lots of sugar. Lots of bourbon. Lots of dark malt. Very, very strong flavors. Finishes amazingly!

JulienHuxley (2947) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle thanks to Tom. Black pour with thick lacy tan foam. Aroma of bourbon (pickles), coffee and burnt toast, smoke is definitely still there but much less so than in the non Ba versions. Taste is a bit smokier, strong bourbon flavors, light coffee roastiness, woody, boozy finish. Palate is full bodied, not too slick, good carbonation. Good.

tom10101 (2663) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled on January 30th 2013. Black with a small ring of beige foam and little to no lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, dills, peat (a lot less than the regular or Wild Turkey version), roasted notes and chocolate. Taste is also dominated by bourbon, but thereís also roasted malt, chocolate and a lingering peated/smoked finish. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Itís quite different than the base beer. It as also unbalanced, but this time itís not because of the heavy peat (even if itís still there), but because of the huge bourbon presence. Itís still a decent/good RIS.

zwart met bruine kraag. Aroma van hout, zoet, volle chocolade, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, bourbon. smaken zijn die van goede bourbon, chocolade, gebrande en geroosterde mouten (niet extreeem) en zwakke koffie, de chocolade en bourbon domineren dit bier eigenlijk behoorlijk maar dat vind ik best wel lekker, tevens redelijk alcoholisch. zeer lekker !

Thanks to blake for the share. Inky black pour, small brown head. Another in a long line of lackluster stouts from these guys. Bourbon shows, so does some plastic, iodine, charcoal, ash...better than most in this series, but that isnít saying a whole lot.
