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.

Pretty pricey at $22 a four pack, but discovered it is worth it. Pours black with off white head. Bread and burbon, complex though. Taste is absolutely fantastic, sweet with the warm alcohol, coupled with a great mouthfeel make this a special beer. I’ll pop for it again.

Strong bourbon notes on the aroma with notes of oak. Appearance is a very dark brown with a good sized tan head. Flavor has notes of chocolate, bourbon, oak and notes of coffee. Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this is a great beer. It definitely lived up to the hype. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrold (2331) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, very dark, chestnut brown. Film, and halo of beige head. It’s leggy, viscous, and in slow motion. There’s vanilla. Rum truffle. Chocolate caramel. A bit woody. Very rich. Taste is light sweet. Fruity dry. Palate is full, smooth, and unctuous. The coffee kicks in stealthily late. Finishes light bitter, and long, chewy, unctuously sweet. Never feels the ABV. Beautiful.

gregwilsonstl (1277) - Missouri, USA - MAY 15, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 Yep this is good. Dark black. Subtle coffee. Vanilla and oak. Chocolate. Incredibly balanced. No idea how to improve this other than copious amounts of vanilla. Tasted at cuginos with Carter.

Hansen (7311) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2015 Great beer, Henrik, top 5.0. Just one bottle...I think. Dark black, light brown head, lasting. Heavy malty, roasted aroma, vanilla, notes of coffee. Notes of whisky and barrels, alcohol. Flavor starts roasted sweet, warming alcohol, faint smoke from the whisky. Creamy, syrupy texture.

Nocturne (1074) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2015
355ml bottle. Dark brown/black with short tan head. Aroma is dark malty, charred wood, rich coffee notes. Dark chocolate and coffee taste. Plenty of coffee bitterness in effect to counter the sweetness. Bold, powerful and flavourful, but drinks pretty easily. Very good.

TheCaptMatey (178) - Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Poured a dark brown to opaque black with a toffee head. Aroma is coffee, toffee, chocolate, and roasted malts with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is coffee upfront followed by chocolate and dark fruits. Somewhat bittersweet. Medium to full bodied with a sweet chewy mouthfeel. Every bit worth the 2 month wait to get this beauty.

.3l bottle @ Harry’s. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is milk coffee, bourbon, dark malts, oak, chocolate and dark fruits. Flavor is bourbon, chocolate, coffee, milk chocolate, dark fruits, dark malts, syrup, bread. Swell and smooth!
