COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our house stout, Iron Horse, aged in Buffalo Trace barrels for 5 months. We’re really happy with the way it came out! It picked up some nice notes of the oak and vanilla tannins, and the bourbon is more of a background note.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012 Poured in a snifter at the pub. Pours a rich black with a slight ruby haze at the edges. Light tan head that covers a finger and slowly shrinks with nice lacing. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, oak, and dark fruit. Taste is vanilla, bourbon, cream, and bitter pine. Medium sticky mouthfeel. Very good.

Draft at the Pre-Dark Lord Day event, 2012. Pours a slick, oily, opaque dark brown with a small beige ring for a head. Big bourbon barrel notes in the aroma and flavor; rich chocolate, vanilla, coffee, oak, brown sugar, and a hint of dark and dried fruits. Very, very sweet, which probably keeps me from rating it higher. Medium-bodied, and smooth on the palate. I wonder if this wouldn’t mellow out with a little more time.

Snifter on tap at the brewpub (Flossmoor, IL). The newest selection from the barrel house. Pours a pitchblack opaque hue, dark and ominous with a frothy cakey hyrbid head, dak brown, good lacing and stays ok sized. Aromas are a nice blast of Bourbon spirit, wet oak and vanilla tannins, cocoa and coffee, a nice feel for roasty barley, burnt malts. Silky and spirits, a good roast with underlying sweetness. Initial is very palatable. Roasted malts, touches of soda bread, cocoa, and coffee. Touches of wet oak, vanilla tannins, the spirit and big barrel presence from the nose dies down, leaving trace kicks of Bourbon and barrel. Silky smooth, creamy roasted barley, dry roast and soda bread, cocoa, soda bread. Sweet toffee, caramel sweetness mixes into cocoa, a touch of molasses, silky smooth and well integrated with lighter barrel, a touch of warmth grows on the finish. Surprisingly held the barrel well, which I feared woe feel for the base, lingering Buffalo Trace.
