Draft sample at The Denver Rare Beer Tasting event during GABF week on 9/25/09. this was one of my favorite beers I had in Denver... Big black pour with an average tan head... huge bourbon nose with some vanilla... Medium body... extremely smooth... the barrel aging really takes force here with the chocolate malts falling back a bit... The bourbon is in your face from front to back... personally I enjoy strong barrel aging and this one delivered... cream like finish... so smooth... Awesome beer.

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

Sample at Denver Rare Beer Tasting aged in 23 Year Old Pappy Van Winkle Barrel. Nose was big bourbon, big vanilla, soft oak, cocoa and roasted malts. Flavor was warming booze, big bourbon backbone, apparent wood, vanilla, some molasses, chocolate and heavy dark roast. I am convinced anything that goes into a Pappy Van Winkle Barrel is a winner!

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 isnít too overpowering. Some light wood aspects noted. Thereís a slight hop presence as well. Very nice. Lots of chocolate, bread, and vanilla. This is one of the best BBA beers Iíve ever had. Well done, Foothills. Though this is only at 7.0%, I feel it. Sip this one.

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

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Yet another crazy growler shared by Johnathan at LCBS 10. One word, two syllables bourbon. The beer had a great bourbon nose, and a mellow bourbon, vanilla, and roasted malt flavor. Well done...
