COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One third of the wort used to make this splendid stout came from each of three North Carolina Breweries: Olde Hickory Brewery, The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery, and Foothills Brewing.

These were combined and aged in very rare 23 year old bourbon barrels. Olde Rabbit’s Foot Imperial Stout is rich and complex; as satisfying to drink as it was to make. We three craft brewers hope you will enjoy the very special Stout as much as we have.

Brewed with honey and with cocoa nibs added and aged in 23 year old Pappy Van Winkle barrels.

Cheers! - Jamie, Paul & Steven

2009 version brewed at Olde Hickory, later versions at Foothills.

Bottle at home ... Its always a pleasure to find your self drinking a relatively highly scoring US beer with less than 100 ratings and no hype ... so already the anticipation on opening is there ... black thin tan head ... soft bitter roast ... lots of chocolate ... bourbon coconut showing through ... big roast ... lots of chocolate ... on first showing the bourbon hasnt kicked me so that good ... definite solid roast ... bourbon is slipping in but not overpowering ... but definitely in linger...oh yeah reading description ... i can see the honey... in fact i think thats whats balancing the bourbon ... still a little more bourbon than id like in linger... but ive gone of bourbon beers of late ...still this is a beer im glad to have had... wow the coco nibs really open up as this breaths ... or maybe from the sediment

Bottle courtesy of tarheels86, thank you sir. Black, dark brown head, some very light lacing. Aroma of bitter cocoa. Taste has cocoa, and a sweet, smooth edge. No apparent oak. Kind of plain, but not bad.

brokensail (12367) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 8, 2010
A: The pour is nearly black with some decent viscosity and a really surprising amount of head. S: A noticeable acidity, likely a lactic infection. The roast, chocolate, and coffee are there, but certainly not what they might have been at one point. T: The roast, chocolate, and vanilla are there in the background, but a bit muted. Overall, the infection detracts just way too much from the flavor. M: Medium in body with a high level of carbonation. D: Really disappointing that this one has gone the sour route. Drink this one up as soon as you can: it’s not going to get any better.
