SlackerMads (1707) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Bottle, 2012. Close to black with a medium sized diminishing tan head. Wooden, brown sugar, molasses, light alcohol presence, bourbon, light dark chocolate. Medium/full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Not overly dominated by bourbon and overall feels quite light and mellow.

Theis (13804) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2014
Bottle at home - Easter Tasting. Black - offwhite head. Sweetness, coconut, bourbon, ok light malty, light bitterness, light boozy nose, dried fruits, rather high raisins, a bit thin finish.

budznsudz (581) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2014
UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Black pour with traditional everything. Mellow whiskey, booze, and a nice mellow feel make up the taste profile. Delicious. I was clearly hammered while reviewing this.

pushkinwow (2101) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
22oz bottle from Capones. With Paul looking over my shoulder I will say only that this is quite the obtuse beer. Although there is some isosceles on the finish. Mellow, slight hint of gold, surprizingly sober...tasty.

BR2/2012. Krämig och fyllig. Lite spritig men ingen fara när man är lite avtrubbad. Riktigt fin och balanserad i övrigt

AirForceHops (3531) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 3, 2014
22 oz. bottle shared by Eric S. at Phatdog1’s house. BR 1 written on the front label. Pitch black with light head retention. When the stout is swirled around it leaves an oily film around the edges. Nice mellow whiskey notes of oak and vanilla. Flavor starts off sweet with toffee, with vanilla and marshmallow through the middle. After the sip I did get a slightly different aftertaste I haven’t experienced in a stout. I have never had Mellow Corn Whiskey but… I have to say that must be the influence. The texture on my tongue was oily with the body in the medium range. I didn’t pick up any of the 9% ABV level. For me I really liked it and can’t wait to try some of the other barrels.

olr1984 (1141) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 27, 2014
22oz bottle pours a oily black with a small tan head. Bourbon vanilla and malt aroma. Taste is the same with a bit of a dark fruit finish.

Bottle. Split with Tom and Chris. Pours pitch black. Beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate fudge, cherries, honey, and whiskey. Mouth is full and creamy. Taste is chocolate and cherries with some booze in the finish. Pretty damn delicious.

2012 gold wax bootle. i’ll be damned if i didn’t enjoy this. pleasant dark roasty chocolate. coffe offered (accpeted). bourbon chill compliment. molasses also offered. chocolately sweetness balanced nicely by roasty dark chocolate bitterness, and some soft bourbon barrel notes. pretty good.
