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.

Pours pitch black with little head. smell is somewhat boozy somewhat chalky with aroma of whiskey and heavy on coffee grounds. Flavor has a black cofee taste, you can really taste the fact that it was aaged in whiskey barrels.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Bottle from MaltOMeal at the December Houston tasting. Thanks! Pours deep black with a thin body and an aroma of used coffee grounds with a hint of bourbon oak. Flavor is bourbon-infused coffee, oak, and light caramel. Full mouthfeel. Nice, nice beer.

JaBier (5485) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Pours pitch black with a minimal head. Aroma of coffee and some bourbon. Lots of coffee flavor up front, followed by alcohol, malt, chocolate, and a vanilla finish. Tough to improve on the regular Breakfast Stout, but they figured out a way. Amazing stuff.

tilldeath (109) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Smells of bourbon and hints of coffe with a roasty malty aroma. Silky medium carbonation mouthfeel. AWESOME, coffee and toffy caramel flavors upfront, followed by the bourbon finish. Great beer not as drinkable IMO as ther regular breakfast stout, but all in all amazing

BigBang (299) - Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2008
2008 bottle. Pours oily thick with very little caramel head. Good lacing. Aroma is first bourbon, coffee. Flavor is bourbon, coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, a little hot. A little bitter. Mouthfeel is thinner than expected. Mild carbonation. Doesnt coat the mouth as much yet it sits on your tongue for a while and drives home the strong bourbon and coffee flavors and ends bitter.

Bottle. Pours a deep black with a small tan head that fades to a ring. Rich aroma, of sweet burnt toasted malt, wood, bourbon, dark fruits, and coffee. Huge taste, of burnt, toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, caramel, vanilla, and ends with bourbon and wood flavors. Lingering wood, coffee and malt richness. Incredibly rich and amazing taste.

Thanks to Fantomas23 for the bottle!
Black with a rich dark tan head. You can still find some of the breakfast elements here. The bourbon gives the coffee nose a nutty quality, some wood. Flavor has more wood and bourbon, and the roast is largely more of a factor. A little milk chocolate as well. The mouth rather thin. Overall good, the barrel mellows some of the vegetal bite of the normal breakfast, but it’s still not very complex.

Bottled, thanks Marsblursi! Black as a November night in hell. Pale brown head. Strong coffee aroma. Sweet and a bit syrupy. There are lots of coffee - vanilla and oak is there to a lesser extent. The mouthfeel is clean and the sweetness quite severe, which limits my enjoyment. The bourbon is balanced, but I find the the malt structure not really to be up to the very high rating.

HonkeyBra (3728) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Crushed with TheDude. I’ve been looking forward to him bringing me this one. Nice, motor oil pour. Jet black, with no head, just a ring around the glass that clings and laces. Aroma is coffee, then some chocolate, all with a boozy bourbony undertone. Flavor is sweet, chocolatey with lots of coffee. The bourbon is very understated and lovely, lends a nice vanilla and oak character. Absolutely loved this one.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Bottle, received in a trade. Black pour, very inactive with no head. Aroma is ginger root, licorice, strange wood, bourbon w/ light vanilla, and roasted malt. Flavor is somewhat sweet caramel and chocolate malt, roasted malt, woody alcohol and the same ginger / licorice component from the aroma. It’s a pretty good BA beer.
