pours black with tan head which disappears but with nice lacing. a rich, woody sweetness in the nose. the barrel aging didnít seem to change the overall sweetness of this beer, which was a touch too sweet to me. t does fill the mouth and nose nicely, but overall the sweetness was what turned me away. that having been said, if you enjoy a beer that is a bit sweet, this is worth a try.

Festival of Barrel Aged Beers-Chicago, 2005. Dark brown, nearly black color. Oak aroma, hints of vanilla. Taste is roasty, milk chocolate, some hops at the end. Nice, full mouthfeel.

Spectacular bourbon-barrel aged sweet stout...more like an imperial to my mind. Black-brown and impenetrable. Strong bouron, whiskey, licorice, dried fruits, raisins, prunes, dates, roasted chocolate malt, coffee, espresso, alcohol, molasses, brown sugar, and burnt candy sugar. Special thanks to my generous pourer, who shared the better part of a secret growler with me...thanks Charlie!

This draft brew from the brewery poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized long lasting brown colored bubbles that left behind an excellent lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was opaque and blackish brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of bourbon malty roasted malts dark malt and was very nice. Its mouth feel is initially smooth with a lingering palate and a coffee aftertaste. Its flavor contained coffee, dark beer brown malty notes and was very tasty. An excellent beer that I would love to buy again.

Tap at Flossmoor. Medium tan fizzy head that was mostly lasting, fine-small sized bubbles, poor lacing, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a near black hue. Aroma was chocolate, coffee, roasty, sweet, and some whiskey. Flavor was sweet, chocolate, roasty, light coffee and some vinuousness towards the fnish. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium body. My favorite during this rating session. Nicely done!

Draft at FSRB. Matt poured this oatmeal stout aged in a Jim Beam barrel into a small snifter. I didnít get the abv, but was told itís not quite imperial stout strength. Pours a nice solid black with a dense brown head. Light whiskey and alcohol smell, but not overpowering. Taste is pretty mild, too. Not big stoutie blast here, just some mellower chocolate roast with a hint of orange juice. After going further down the glass, I start to pick up more alcohol, but it remains quite smooth. The whiskey comes across like a B&B. The Flossmoor bartender said sheís a whiskey fan, and she and her whiskey drinking fans find it very enjoyable. Not a "big" beer, but full of nice details.
