UPDATED: OCT 20, 2005 Tap at brewery. Whew! This one smells and tastes as advertised-- bourbon, oak, and hints of smoke. Fantastic beer; one of the best I’ve had.

onceblind (4660) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 Clear black with a thin light white head. Smell is glorious with bourbon and vanilla-oak with chocolate chip cookie. Flavor is bourboned with a sweet boozy oaked flavor followed by some vanilla and chocolate, with a boozy sharpness in the middle. Finished up with an oaked sweetness.

On tap, Wild Turkey barrel, cask conditioned: This is the best whiskey barrel stout that I've ever had. Brown/black color with a nice head. Light malts and whiskey in the aroma. Full bodied, light bourbon taste at the end that is sweet and well balanced. This tastes like beer with bourbon flavoring, not like a shot was added to the beer like some examples of this style that I've had. Deep rich ending. Well done.

I had this off the tap last night at the Chophouse in Boulder, Colorado. It was quite nice; black as night, with a soft, smooth, but not very large tan head. It is not as intensely flavored as many stouts, but it isn't bland either. I'm sure I will drink it again.

The bartender told me this was conditioned in Wild Turkey barrels. This was a fantastic beer, albeit a little green, I would love to have some of this to lay down and try again after a year or so. Strong alcohol aroma, immediately follwed by vanilla and oak when your nose calms down from the sting it just took. Lots of vanilla, with some nice whisky notes, licorice and a bit of molasses. This is tasty and creamy!

Whiskey/vanilla/oaky notes on the aroma. Pitch black in color. A sweet stout with nice tones of wood and vanilla and some light funk. Notes: GABF ’09 visit

Dark brownish-black in color with a long lasting brown head. Aroma is mostly bourbon with some roasted malt. It has acreamy mouthfeel. Like the nose the flavor is mostly bourbon with a little roastiness.
