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 beautiful brown, almost black with a thin creamy head. I forgot to catch the aroma after first pouring because I was so excited to drink it. Tastes like liquid chocolate with slight hint of coffee. This is not a bad thing. Heavy on the bourbon up front but mellows as it warms. Mouthfeel is about the best I’ve had in a stout, not too thin and not too heavy. I know I’m going all fanboy but this is honestly one of the top three beers I’ve had. It lives up to the hype IMO. P.S. I know what it smells like...perfection.

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.

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 (2485) - 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 (1527) - 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.

Bottle @ Zeebra 2015, small sample. Dark color, short frothy brown head. Aroma of dark roast, dark chocolate, bit coffee, molasses. Slight sweet in taste, roasty bitterness. Just a touch of vanilla. Smooth, slight creamy texture. Good stuff.
