A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

Aroma is dark coffee. Appears black with a small brown head. Tastes a lot of coffee with a real sweet bourbon body. Very enjoyable and not overbearing. I could drink this all night if I had the tolerance.

I can’t believe I never rated this. Just picked up 2 four packs. Pours a dark black with tan head that leaves nice lacing which lingers. The nose is tobacco, chickory, whisky & roasted coffee. First sip is unblievably smooth. Beautiful dark roasted flavors transition to a warming sweet bourbon flavor. Dark chocolate lingers with a touch of tobacco. Truely a great beer.

Poured black with a very small head, just some carbonation on top, no lacing. Overpowering aroma of bourbon, and some coffee and vanilla on the backend. You can really smell the bourbon from 5 feet away. Flavor is more bourbon, some wood oaking, and coffee, with a hint of chocolate. Drinkable but this stuff gives you a head rush after only 10oz. Feels stronger than 11% ABV for some reason, though does not affect rating at all.

Amazing brew! Poured black with a very thin tan head, very little lacing. Aromas of bourbon and vanilla with some coffee on the nose. Smooth drinking beer with a slight coffee aftertaste. Very nice brew, flavors blended perfectly.

Black color with a average creamy good lacing mostly lasting brown head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, burnt, dark chocolate, vanilla, light hoppy, cask wood, bourbon. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a long duration, nice balance and very harmonious. Body is full, texture is creamy and smooth, carbonation is soft. Very very nice

Good Stuff. Theres alot going on here but I think I can sum it up quick. Theres two distict parts: The up front whisky scent in the nose that goes along with the heat to feel as though you’ve just taken a shot, and the very smooth chocolate stout that smooths it out afterwards. Kinda smells like Jameson Irish whiskey.

on tap at Buster’s on 28th. They had two choice 5oz or 10oz. NO BRAINER, I got the bigger one. This beer was jet black with no head. Smell was sweet and coffee. Taste was bourbon and roasty with a lot fo coffee. This is a must have.

Aroma of maple syrup and jack daniels. Pours pitch black with a dark tan head. The taste starts very sweet and immediately goes to the burbon flavor and when mixed with the high alcohol it actually tastes like you’ve mixed a shot in with your stout.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Appearance is a dark dense black with a one finger head of tan foam that dissipates a bit quicker than I would prefer. Not a whole lot of lacing. Good carbonation. Aroma is of dark bitter chocolates, vanilla from the barrels, sweet latte notes, and with a litter deeper digging I find a black coffee presence. The first sip is an enormous assault on the palate as waves of roasted coffee beans, vanilla, wood, and chocolate attack with no remorse. As the beer slides toward the back of the throat, a distinct woody note lingers and dries the mouth out and fades to a subtle alcohol presence. Quite a complex beer, I can see where its reputation has come from and glad I was able to snag a four-pack of these before they flew out the door.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2011 Poured into a snifter. A good balance between chocolate and bourbon. Bourbon is on the lighter side compared to say a Goose Island or Angels Share Bourbon Barrel. Has a really sweet aftertaste of molasses. Very Good!
