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.

2010 & 2011 bottles. Good dark brown color and tan head not much head but as expected due to the barrel aging. Great rich sweet aroma that definitely smells like molasses and caramel, slight hint of bourbon. Flavor is amazing, great balance, sweet, complex. Chocolate mixed with caramel and coffee, ever slight oak/smoke to it that just makes the balance perfect. Not much hop to this one :) Fantastic bourbon and malt pairing, one of the best.

FatPhil (10635) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 27, 2015
3550ml bottle (Kitty’s, Helsinki) (7+:4:7+:4:14+=3.6+++)
Initially a chocolate and vanilla aroma, later lots of espresso. Sweet palate, but pleasant carbonation, not too sticky. Full rich coffee, chocolate, and bourbon taste - has warming heat. What’s thre is nice, bit it’s not beer, it’s just a bottle of adjuncts. After only a few minutes in the glass, it’s warmed up enough to start smelling boozy. And those vapours go up the back of the nose too. Are you sure this isn’t just a decent beer with bourbon added? Whatever, the mixture’s tasty.

Such a great stout. Similar to Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout, but superior in my opinion as th bourbon isn’t as overpowering

Colour: blackest black. Decent head that stays for a while. Aroma: booze/bourbon, vanilla, oak, caramel, sweet fruit (melon/watermelon?), honey -- very pleasant, and not over the top. Silky smooth body, almost syrupy. Taste: sweet, mellow, dark chocolate, gentle alcohol bite; barrel influence is very much present, but not overpowering. Aftertaste is warming, quite bitter (coffee really shines here), and nicely balances the sweetness. So glad I have one more bottle of this.

maximet (134) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
Black as black can be, tiny brown lace. Bourbon, wood, coffee, hint of chocolate and vanilla. Nice bitterness, well balanced. Full body, thick with soft carbonation, long bourbon touch finish

Vignale (2489) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2015
Flaska från SB. En riktigt kraftig IS. Ganska söt och inte så besk, men kroppen är så stor att den inte känns särskilt söt, bara kraftig. Kaffe, choklad, lite vanilj och bourbon men fatlagringen dominerar inte alls smakbilden utan lägger till ytterligare en dimension till ett i grunden riktigt bra öl. Hypen kanske inte riktigt håller fullt ut men riktigt gott.

martin00sr (1530) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2015
Black with small light tan head. Aroma has barrel, bourbon and raw licorice. Solid, balanced and boozy. Flavour is similar with lots of barrel flavour and coffee bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth and sticky with a strong bitter kick. Quite boozy but well balanced by the lasting bitterness. My rating #1500.

Flaska från SB. Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Kraftig doft av kaffe. Söt och kraftig med smak av kaffe, vanilj och bourbon.
