COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A portion of our Oatmeal Stout is aged in “Old Grand-Dad” bourbon barrels fresh from the distillery. During six weeks of conditioning, it acquires its unique bourbon overtones and a mellow vanilla flavor from the American white oak barrels. Served cool, not cold, via a traditional English beer engine. Intensely smooth!

Draft to taster at brew pub pour opaque black with minimal to no head. Nose vanilla, Bourbon, molasses. Taste big vanilla, Bourbon, light roast. No carbonation, served via "traditional English beer engine" feels thin for style, but decent flavors.

Majek (678) - Ząbki, POLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Dark brown colour with low head. Medium intensive aroma of bourbon, vanilla, peat and some smoke notes. Very nice at nose. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, light bitter and light sour with short roasty fisnish. Unfortunately, taste is very thin and surprisingly watery. Soft carbonation. Overall, it’s a beer with very nice, full of bourbon note aroma, but taste is very thin. More body could help it.

chinchill (4137) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2015
On cask at the brewpub. Has an essentially black body with a decent head. Lots of bourbon flavor and aroma, suggesting the bourbon barrel was not ruined before brewery use. Smooth but overly light body.

Tayeth (528) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2015
Im Geruch gibt es eine wahnsinnige Vanille-Komponente, die sich auch im Geschmack wiederfindet. Dickflüssig, fast wie ein Cocktail. Kaum karbonisiert.

Pyobon (1268) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2015
(On Tap) Jet black with big white head. Smoky, peaty, oaky. Great palate - smooth but quite light at the same time. Great taste primarily oaky whisky over a sweetish dark roast malt. Very well balanced combination of flavours. This is bourbon, not stout, dominated. I like whisky so this works well for me. I guess if you are looking for a stout with whisky notes you may be disappointed.

solidfunk (7236) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bourbon rules this one. Not much of a stout behind it. Pours black with OK head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Lots of booze and bourbon barrel aroma doesn’t help. Tap at brewpub.

ads135 (4060) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 22, 2014
An average bourbon barrel stout. Pitch black, almost non existent tan head, lots of alcohol and bourbon on the nose with a rich dark fruit flavor.

radagast83 (7090) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2013
On tap at the District ChopHouse in DC. Pint, came to table virtually pitch black with a very small, almost wispy tan head. Aroma was light roasted sweet malts and plenty of vanilla and bourbon. Mouthfeel is a bit thin unfortunately, but with that ABV, it’s drinkable through a meal.

deaconmike (460) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Served around 55 degrees. Nice looking beer - almost jet black with a thick espresso head that persists. Aroma is heavy bourbon, wood and vanilla; a nice sweetness on the nose. Taste follows the aroma. Not too sweet; no real bitterness to speak of. Mouthfeel is flat although creamy and a touch on the thin side. Worth trying.
