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 a three finger dark brown head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Sweet roasted coffee nose. Flavor is sweet roasted coffee, don’t detect the bourbon barrel, high ABV is hidden, almost burnt coffee finish. Nice stout. Pricey at $6.95 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours an oily black with no head, just a little lacing, little apparent carbonation. Aroma and flavor are dominated by bourbon from beginning to end. The bourbon overpowers any other vague flavors that might be present. Not a bad flavor ultimately, but really like drinking a weak whiskey, in flavor, that is. Palate is somewhat creamy, but also a little watery for the style. Not bad, but unmemorable for a Top 50 beer. Overall, very good.

halfonit (1313) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 6, 2009
WOW! Pitch black color. Smells mostly of chocolate and coffee with a hint of bourbon. Taste is medium bodied and quite complex. Tastes mostly of chocolate with some very rich undertones of coffee and bourbon. Has a little bite in the end like most bourbons do, I feel privileged to have had this one.

Bourbon Barrrels do it better! A great stout to begin with and now even better. A great, strong wood flavor and smoth texture. Definately give this one a try!

Bottle at The Rake, HogTownHarry visit May 2009. Good subtle bourbon on aroma. Black lasting tan head. Quite sharp on the aroma. Lots of bouron on end. Very choccy. Just a bit too intense to be enjoyable if truth be told.

cexshun (99) - Portage, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2009
2009 bottle. Pours jet black. Very aggressive pour has very small amount of brown head. Head quickly disapates with no lace. Aroma STRONG of coffee. Also pick up oak, bourbon, roasted malt, alcohol, yeast. Slight hint of chocolate. Flavor instantly strong with coffee. Much more bourbon taste then aroma. Oak flavor is toned down in the back ground. Flavor gets MUCH better as it rests and warms. Full mouth feel. Lightly coats, but nowhere near what other imps do. Lighty carbonated to perfection.
