Aged 5 years. Black pour with a thin light tan head. Big aromas of maple, oak barrel, char, tobacco, coffee. Amazing flavor wth chocolate, maple, oaked bourbon, coffee, more maple and barrel, some bourbon, more chocolate, a wee touch of licorice, and a little touch of tobacco. Amazing as heck.

Canadian breakfast stout is another excellent example of how maple, coffee and bourbon barrel mixed together contributes to a fabulous barrel aged example. The notes of maple are strong but not over powering and the hint of chocolate, coffee and tobacco round out the balance. Hits your palate not too hot and not over powering as the 10.6% is well hidden. Another example of great bourbon based stouts. A must try, Cheers!

Having wanted this beer since I got into craft beer I was hyped to finally be able to try it. It is a good beer but I guess the hype and anticipation outweighed how good the beer is. Im glad I got to try it but wouldn’t give up my cellar for a bottle.

Bottle @ Deans Bomb Shelter Tasting, thnx to the crew for sharing! Pours a pitch black beer with a thin tanned head on top. Aroma of soy sauces, molasses, slight chocolate and some faint ground coffee in the back. Flavor is sweet, big influence of the syrup in there, Has a faint herbal note in the very back. Soft carbonation, long bittersweet aftertaste. Nice, but I’ve expected way more to be honest.

Bottle shared at Kermis’ b-day bottleshare, thanks to Jeroen. First batch. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma is minty, chocolate, coffee, mocha, caramel. Taste is rather sweet. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Great, but the mint was a bit weird.

Tap at Aurora Brew Works Founders takeover. Poured a jet black color with small sudsy off white head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and bourbon hit the nose. Flavor was coffee, chocolate, woody, bourbon, slight sweet maple. Little more mellow and smooth than KBS, which was also on tap. Full body, oily texture, average carbonation, a slight bitter and bourbon burn finish to it. Nice beer that I’m glad to finally tick off.
