COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Beer number 500! Pours solid black with a very thin brown head that recedes quickly. Aroma is vanilla, smooth bourbon, milk chocolate, and hop spice. Taste is smooth vanilla, darker chocolate, and cocoa. Very good texture, nice and thick cocoa and marshmallow feel on the finish.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2009
On tap at Founders brewpub. Pours thick viscous black with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma has a ton of coffee, espresso, very pungent. Lots of roasted choc malt and some alcohol. Also getting some molasses, burnt marshmallows and licorice. Flavor starts very sweet with the molasses, lots of oak, and bourbon, very nice woody character behind all of the sweet toasty malts. Big alcohol kick in the finish that trails for some time through the swallow. Full bodied and rich. Very nice beer, especially at the brewery.

alobar (3123) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Black color with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, wood, chocolate, and roasted malts. Needs to warm. Flavor of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and a fine bourbon finish. Easily one of the best ever.

sarahmarie (265) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2009 Love it. Smells like a Hershey chocolate bar with a strong alcohol presence. The taste is bold and complex. Dark chocolate and coffee smack you in the face followed by a strong bourbon aftertaste. Its warming, delicious, and everything I want in a stout.

Bottle thanks to Arbitrator on BA. This beer owns something fierce, almost but not quite equall to the legendary Canadian Breakfast Stout. Pours a viscous, oily jet black with a small, creamy tan head that leaves a ring around the glass. This has legs like a Swedish bikini model, i.e. they’re very good. Aroma is coffee, roast, chocolate, and high-quality Kentucky bourbon. Flavor is coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt that adds a little sweetness, vanilla, oak, and of course loads of bourbon. Not too much though. Almost but not quite as good as Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. A little boozy, but certainly not unpleasantly so...or maybe I was just too drunk to notice (and you can’t blame me since we had all three Breakfast Stout incarnations at this tasting + other awesome stuff). Palate is smooth, creamy, and oily with low carbonation. Overall this is a top-notch imperial stout.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2009 Bottle, Thanks Beachbum1975! Pours a jetblack color with a small bubbly beighe head. Aroma is dominated by coffee but still filled with roasted malt,liquorice, rich dark chocolat and some suprsingly subtle bourbon notes. A bit of an sharp ashy tone can be felt aswell. Taste is pretty sweet with some big notes of boubon,liquorice, dark chocolat,coffee and some oaky notes. Small doses of vanilla and smoke/tar is detected. Some hot alcohol can be felt but it’s not overpowering. Would love to try an aged bottle of this.
