Iím not a huge barrel fan, but then again I canít really see what the barrel adds to this beer. Especially using the Pappy - youíve gotta figure if you use these barrels it should be well-employed. Finishes lightly sour. Some dark chocolate - not a huge beer. Tap at Churchkey.

Huhzubendah (3543) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 11, 2014
On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer has a near black appearance with a wispy head. Aromas of sweet malt, char, roast, booze. Too sweet and lacking bourbon character. I got excited when I read this was partially aged in Pappy van Winkle barrels, but this didnít translate to the flavor. Thin body and a bit cloying. This one missed the mark for me.

RussianDragon (574) - - MAY 9, 2014
On tap at Church key. Pours a translucent black with brown lacing and soapy head. Aroma is overly sweet, bourbon, and a certain medicinal quality. Flavor is charred oak, roasted malts and sweet vanilla. Sweet finish.

GenDV138 (6102) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2014
4 ounces on draft at ChurchKey during the SAVOR Surly event, probably left over from the previous nightís event. Pours black with tan head, good lacing. Aromas of mint, herbs, vanilla, light chocolate. Tasting notes of bourbon, mint, herbs, floral notes, chocolate. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.

DiarmaidBHK (4241) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Draft at Appalachian vintner. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Nice roasted malt and oak notes on the nose. Fairly big Bourbon note on the tongue that gets more prominent and bold as it warms. Finish lingers a bit. Listed at 7% but feels bigger. Nice!

bubbleflubber (2167) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2013
On tap at the ISIS in Asheville. Pours oily black with a retentive frothy tan head that leaves thick lacing. The nose has roasts and chocolates. A big wallop of bourbon accompanies choco-roasted notes, a hint of smoke and dark malts. The finish comes back to a bourbon close. Full bodied and silky to the palate, it's rich and yummy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Multiple draft samples. Dark brown almost black color with a tan head. Smells like roasted malts and bourbon. Little bit of chocolate too. Smooth, coffee bourbon flavor. Refreshing, if that is possible. Really good stout

Cybercat (5171) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Comes out of the tap a luscious opaque sable with a good tan head. Aroma has an overtone of bourbon - no surprise there - but this does not drown out the roast malt, coffee and molasses notes. Flavor has bourbon, roast malt, nutty, coffee and chocolate notes. Texture is a it thin for a stout, but has good fizz and leaves a smoky malt and molasses finish. Definitely worthy.

OldGrowth (3271) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2013
Pint at Tylerís Apex. Good aroma, sweet. Barrel and chocolate. Dark orange brown color. Ok head and lace. Sweet bitter flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy, bittersweet finish. Good ba beer. Not overpowering. Real good balance in flavor of barrel and chocolate. Very drinkable.

Draft at Mellow- mild malty aroma and black, thin pour with a muted taste of bourbon and mild aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
