3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle shared by MadBeerBaron. 2012 vintage, with a little over a year on it. Brown-black body, Soapy head. Big bourbon chocolate aroma. Deep barrel tones. Pretty nice, some red fruit, coffee. Gets boozier as it warms. Pretty solid, but the booze and age steal a little of the malt tones, I’d guess.

11 oct 2013, bottle 02058. Aged in Breckinridge bourbon barrels. Black. Nose is faintly sour, like been too long in bourbon barrels. Med full body, slightly fizzy. Serious dark chocolate stout, big alcohol. Awesome

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin beige ring. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, cocoa, smooth vanilla, bourbon and a splash of coffee. The finish of this was strange and I would have to say it was like green peppers which took away from the beer.
