Draft. Nothing special. Very bland. My money is on used three time barrels or too short of a time span. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft @ Busy Bee (Raleigh) Deep rich brown color with minimal head. Strong coffee flavor without quit being excessively overpowering. Great stout worth getting a 2nd of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (3450) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2013
Draught. Pours a near black color with a fairly small off-white head. Nose has a smack of bourbon in it that masks a lot of other notes in the smell. Taste has a bit of roasting in there, but is dominated by the bourbon. I like the normal version better, personally.

Originally reviewed: 5/20/10. In celebration of "craft beer week," Foothills decided to pull out this big boy again. The bartender told me that this was aged in barrels that had previously aged another beer. This came out a muddy brown/black. Not as dark as I expected. No head at all. No lace. Big vanilla scents in this one. Some oak, bourbon, and a bit of toasted brown sugar. The body is slightly crisp, maybe a bit too much. Could be a little creamier IMO. The bourbon notes are toned down a bit as these barrels had been previously used. I like that. The bourbon isn’t too overpowering. Some light wood aspects noted. There’s a slight hop presence as well. Very nice. Lots of chocolate, bread, and vanilla. This is one of the best BBA beers I’ve ever had. Well done, Foothills. Though this is only at 7.0%, I feel it. Sip this one.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA on 5/26/11. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Huge whisky notes in the aroma. Almost too much. Also some chocolate, maple, and a faint bitter hop finish. The taste is roasted malts, nutty notes, whisky, chocolate and a leafy hop finish. Medium bodied.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Draught at Carrboro Beverage Company. Thanks Evan. Black with a small tan head. Nose of sweet bourbon, roast, cocoa, vanilla, booze. Flavor is similar. Mouthfeel felt a little light for a bigger beer. Solid.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at the Sexual Chocolate release in February 2010. Poured into my mini snifter. Color is black with a tan head and a touch of lacing. The nose brings some really nice notes from the bourbon-barrel aging, with bourbon, oak, and vanilla coming through along with some chocolate and roast. Taste is mostly bourbon and chocolate in a really nice combination. Good heavy feel. I preferred this to Sexual Chocolate and was really glad to have tried it.

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth musky chocolate, light soy sauce, a bit salty, not bad. In mouth, a nice smooth and bitter chocolate, with toasted coffee beans, not very bourbon barrel-like but good nonetheless. On tap at Brewvival, Feb. 26 2011.
