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.

Aroma is very rich with lots of coffee, some chocolate and hints of vanilla. Flavour is also rather rich with coffee, semi‐dark chocolate, some vanilla, oaky notes and hints of licorice. Very tasty stuff for a coffee lover like me. A masterpiece.

Bottle from a trade – thanks Jason!
Aroma has strong coffee notes, some licorice and bourbon. Smooth palate. Flavour starts with coffee and goes through strong whisky notes, passes the licorice valley with touch of salt and ends up with woody aftertaste with bourbon. And warms my throat afterwards. Still delicious! At the end of the glass the coffee steps a bit aside and bourbon tones take over.
9+4+9+4+17 = 4.3

What a beer! Despite the hefty amount of alcohol it drinks smooth, dark with gracious amounts of bourbon and coffee and vanilla notes.

355ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow:
Fantastic stuff from Founders & well worth the wait, I’m glad I picked up 2 bottles at the time. Full of flavour & quite complex with dark, ripe fruits & an oak sweetness on top of the excellent roasted flavours & dark malts. I enjoyed the warming alcohol touches that gave the beer a nice kick & despite the strength it still proved an easier than expected beer to drink. A beautiful beer & one of the best I think I’ve tried, I’m definitely looking forward to trying this one again now.

Two words Bur Bon. In the aroma in the flavor Kentucky through and through. Malt undertone mellows it out a bit and adds a slight sweet flavor.

An awesome bourbon barreled stout. Pours a beautiful deep black with a tan head. Smells great, vanilla and bourbon and mint. More of this in the taste, lots of vanilla and coffee and mint, with bourbon in the finish. Had on tap at 0L bottleshop.

From bottle, thanks a lot Orla!!! Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, light licorice, bourbon, dark fruits, this baby has got it all! Taste is an explosion of goodness, vanilla, bourbon, woody finish, light chocolate, roasted malts, so f*cking well balanced!

8oz pour- I wish I could wake up to this every morning. It is the amazing coffee and bourbon smell. The taste is so well blended it is ludicrous. Amazing beer.

Aroma is full on dark chocolates with a lingering sweetness. Brown sugars and wooden vanilla. Excellent smell. Taste delivers on all levels. Roasted malts, sweet sweet molasses, toffee, candy, slight sting of bourbon and a hell of a lot of smooth rich malts with character.

Huge roasted aromas of whiskey and wood. Deep dark beer with creamy brown head. The creamy roasted flavor is thick and carry the vanilla bourbon softly. Really good.
