On draught at Roscoe’s, aged in Maker’s barrels. Love this stout even more with the added kick of barrel aging.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mongers. Pours a ruddy black color with a small beige head. A big sweet nose, vanilla and oak. Huge sweet bourbon, vanilla, toffee, burnt toffee, dark fruit, berries, chocolate. Hot bourbon. Light astringent oak and heavy whiskey. Damn good. This is aged in Willett barrels according to the bottle. Awesome beer.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Came to me straight from the Taproom in Astoria. Deep dark body with a nice two finger tan head, notes of light wood, and coffee come to the nose. The body is perfect, not too heavy not too thin. Taste is of sweet vanilla and toffee notes. The light bourbon barrel taste lingers in the end drawing you back for more.
The notes from the bottle were more appealing to me than the tap.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An awesome bourbon barrel stout. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells of coffee, cinnamon and some licorice. Taste is creamy, with some vanilla and cocoa. The bourbon comes in at the finish. The stout and bourbon are a bit separate, not integrated like some other examples. Paired with a lamb burger, the beer is smoothed out, with a bit more bourbon coming out.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours rich black with creamy head which hangs around. It has a pleasing vanilla aroma and flavor. The bourbon punctuates this beers flavor and subtle toffee and coffee flavors come though towards the end. Very well done. I like it a lot.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is the 2014, 9.9% ABV, Willet bourbon barrel edition: smooth, rich vanilla nose with some background heat. Beautiful, classic Cavatica body and flavor. Good bitterness, Fort George thickness to the body and robust malts. The bourbon flavors fucking delicious. A little spice, vanilla, dry oak and cedar herbal qualities.
