It is the same base as our Bourbon County Stout, but instead of aging in Bourbon barrels, we dry hop it like madmen. ABV – 11.7% IBU’s – 60 Color – 100 Aroma Hops –Mt.

MiP (13725) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle, 11.7%. Weak roasted aroma, a little vinous with teaish hops. Black colour. Small dark brown head. The flavour is powerful, nice roasted note, good teaish hop flavour with a little bite to it. Quite sweet, but balanced nicely by the alcohol.

Travlr (13029) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle. Black. Small but very dark brown head that settles quickly to three bubbles. Aroma of brandy, dilute coffee, dark Hershey bar, prune. Thick and chewy, almost solid. Taste starts with dark cocoa and progresses to port, smoke, peat, raisins. As it warms, the hops really come through in the finish, without overwhelming the complexities of the stout itself. Rich stuff.

TBone (12966) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Draught@RNH. Dark opaque black color, tiny brownish head. Aroma has coffee, wood and alcohol. Medium bodied. Lots of dark malts, rye bread, wood, and punch of alcohol. Sticky. It feels like aged in oak. Quite simple although somewhat tasty.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2010
(22oz bottle) Pours a black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of licorice, roasted malt, fennel, chocolate, herbs, and pine. Flavor of roasted malt, grapefruit, chocolate, licorice, toffee, pine, florals, and coffee with a dry, moderately bitter finish. Excellent!

Rasmus40 (11689) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2011
Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, sugar and hoppy. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Finishes bitter and with warming alcohol. Full bodied and oily. Just like the Bourbon County Stout this i too sweet and too alcoholic, though not as rough. Still a great beer though. 050311

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London - another big one from Seth! Pours black-brown with a creamy, tan head. Dark malt nose with burnt marshmallow and milk chocolate. Big sweet flavor, some dark malts, moderate roast, big alcohol, burnt sugars, some dark fruits, raisins and licorice. Full bodied with average to high, creamy carbonation. A bit of heat on the finish, more dark sugars, decent roast, robust earthy bitterness. It’s fairly hot. Very good, but not outstanding.
