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!

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.

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.

Im Geruch gibt es eine wahnsinnige Vanille-Komponente, die sich auch im Geschmack wiederfindet. Dickflüssig, fast wie ein Cocktail. Kaum karbonisiert.

(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.

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.

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.

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.

Ron (3102) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2013
On tap at District ChopHouse in DC. Pitch black. Nose is definitely bourbon and wood. Sweetmalts, roasted malts, vanilla, faint molasses and choco-notes. Taste is lots of bourbon and wood with big roasted malts and fruit. Little vanilla coming through here as well as light chocolate. Body is smooth and creamy. Light alcohol warmth on this as well. Finishes with wood and bourbon notes, sweet malts, vanilla and roasty notes.

On tap 5 oz. sample at the District Chophouse & Brewer in downtown Washington, DC. Hazy and opaque, bright mahogany with an off-white head and fair lacing. Aroma of bourbon, whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, toffee and oak. Taste begins and ends intensely of whiskey. I've had some whiskeys that did not taste this strongly of whiskey. Other flavors include bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, alcohol, roasted malt and molasses. Very full body but no carbonation. An intense, solid stout, which, to my mind, would benefit from less whiskey and more carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 Draft->shaker. Pours a deep brown with small tan head. Aroma is faint, has some chocolate, roasted malt, bourbon. Taste is watered down chocolate with notes of bourbon. Thin and watery, disappointing.
