Notes from the first release - cork and cage. Aroma is very light with some smoky malts. Pours dark mahogany with a tan head. The flavors bring malty chocolate notes; roasted and bitter notes round it out as well.

On tap at Uno’s Hamilton. Everything I like about a bourbon barrel stout except just ever so thin on the mouthfeel - and a little sour, a little boring. Put it into context though, a boring bourbon barrel stout is not really that boring, is it.

Pours a thick, opaque, very dark brown with a quickly fading mochacino colored head. Oaky vanilla and coconut spills out of the glass into the olfactory. Smooth and viscous. Alcohol warmth is evident. Coconut, vanilla, oak, and rich caramel.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is big bourbon barrel notes. Coconut, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, and alcohol. The flavor is chocolate, vanilla, caramel. Much bigger body then I would have thought, based off of the aroma. Rich and warming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours opaque ink-black with a small, thin dark tan head. Aromas of charred wood, coffee, and maybe a touch of caramel. Full body, with a mild thickness. Flavor of bourbon and vanilla up front, giving way to coffee. There is a woody note at the back, along with some bourbon and a touch of citrusy hop bitterness to lighten it a touch.
