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.

355ml bottle from Vino, shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours opaque dark brown with a persistent tan head. Lovely tight, tiny-bubbling head. Aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, hazelnuts, premium coffee. Taste is all of the preceding m’lud. Great structure to the palate. Long roasted, caramel biscuit and boozy finish. Yeah.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn crema head. Nose - syrup and toasted sweet pancakes with chocolate. Hazelnuts. Taste - maple syrup and chocolate with an alcohol finish. Loads of wood. Palate - full bodied with a big creamy but slightly tannic middle section and a long dry finish, which keeps coming back with richness. Overall - loads going on,

Velvety black pour with thin mocha colored head. Bitter coffee, vanilla, oak, and TONS of bourbon. Warmth of alcohol is alluring. Definitely a sipper. Good stuff.

Bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Full bodied velvety mocha, vanilla and bourbon, silky smooth, dark chocolate and roastiness into the light bitter and smooth finish. Carbonation is soft. Lovely.

nihtila (2091) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2015
Bottle from Beerhive a while ago. Pours black with creamy brown head, slightly oily. Nose is complex and rich - vanilla, bourbon, deep roast, dark chocolate, coffee. Very promising. Palate is rich and strong. Roasted malts, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla. Warming boozy finish with dryish roast and coffee. Yes, it is delicious. Small minus from quite strong booziness at the end.

Dégustée sur la terrasse en compagnie de Ju-Lo. Merci pour le partage mon vieux! À peine décapsulée, la bouteille laisse échapper des arômes qui en un instant ont entièrement envahie la terrasse! Le bouquet olfactif de cette bière est absolument fabuleux: chocolat noir, pain grillé, un bourbon chaud et caramélisé, du bois... Suis-je en train de devenir fou? Oui et tant mieux! Plus je m’attarde à ces arômes parfaites, plus j’y perçois de la pâtisserie. En me fermant les yeux, je respire les effluves d’un magnifique gâteau aux framboises à la crème pâtissière et aux marshmallows. C’est absolument fabuleux! La magnifique complexité de ce nectar diminue de quelques crans en bouche. En effet, les saveurs sont moins élaborées que les arômes. Sur mon palais coule un magnifique liquide chocolaté aux subtiles saveurs de bourbon chaud du Kentucky, de mélasse et de réglisse rouge. La délicieuse amertume laissée en fin de bouche est celle d’un grand chocolat belge! Irréprochable texture soyeuse et souple, moins riche toutefois que l’impériale stout de la même brasserie; le vieillissement en barriques de bois ayant aminci la texture de ce magnifique breuvage. Je suis émerveillé et sans voix.

Pours black with an average, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffe, chocolate, anilla and bourbon. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and slightly bitter. Full to medium bodied, oily to creamy texture and soft carbonation.
