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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Tom L. Black, opaque. Very apparent coffee aroma with some vanilla beans. Mouthful bitter-sweetness and some coffee in the mouth. No carbonation, full body, long, coffee finish. Great.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2014 Taste from a norwegian dude, cheers mate. Pours almost pitch black with a small tanned head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, cherries, slight bourbon, slight booze, coffee. Taste is amazing, boomin vanilla, fudge, sweet dark fruits, nice roast and good burned coffee finish.

Dark brown, almost black pour with small beige head. Aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla and bourbon. Taste of roasted malts, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, coffee, chocolate and faint licorice. Full bodied, medium carbonation, creamy mouth feel, perfectly balanced. Excellent beer!

Pours dark, dark brown into snifter with a very thin light brown head. Wonderful nose - vanilla, bourbon, and cherries. Taste is complex and smooth...bourbon, vanilla, oak, coffee, and a touch of bitterness. I get the hype - this is a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

All I can say is, heaven in a bottle. I was lucky enough to get a few cases of this for my wedding party on wedding day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At a tasting, many thanks Tom, small brown creamy head, thick pour, opaque black colour, flavour of cocoa, dirt, coffee and vanila in the back, feels quite aromatic, flavour of not too roasted coffee, cocoa, bittersweet chocolate, vanila and dark bread. Nicely balanced and really really good.

Noire aux reflets rubis avec une belle mousse moka. Nez: Truffe au chocolat. Anisé. Café corsé. Bourbon. Boisé/vanille. Bouche: nougat. Caramel au beurre salé. Bien chocolaté. Très bien équilibré. Sucré balancé avec une bonne amertume. Fine chaleur d'alcool (bourbon). Jalapeño, sans le piquant. Très bien.
