1/31/13. Can. Pours dark brown-black with a small brown head. Aroma is roasty, vanilla, chocolate, creamy, bourbon, a touch of soy sauce. Taste is malty; roast, some bread, chocolate, bourbon, creamy, sweet. Very drinkable. ABV well hidden. Medium-low carbonation. Light-bodied and watery. My main criticism is that it feels light-bodied for the style. Though I did enjoy it and would certainly drink more of these.

jcos (1522) - Maryland, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Location/Date:Can on January 25th, 2013 during day 1 of Nerd Beer Epic Weekend.

Appearance: Pours dark opaque with brown/red head.
  Aroma: Aroma mostly bourbon.
  Taste: Heavy on the bourbon making it sweet, some faint roast.
    Palate:Medium light body, a little thin.

Summary: I think sometimes when a bourbon barrel aged beer goes overboard on the bourbon it just doesn’t work for me..that along with some thinness and the unfortunate situation(for the beer) of being had after Dark Lord made this one just okay.

ben4321 (3800) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Location: Can at Nerd Beer Epic Weekend, 1/25/13

Aroma: The nose is roasty and a little burnt, with some oak, vanilla, and bourbon
Appearance: This one pours a dark brown color with a small, light brown head and minimal lace
Flavor: The flavor has roasted and burnt malts, minimal sweetness, and a good amount of bourbon
Palate: Feels a touch light for the style, a little watery, pretty dry, and it has a fairly short duration
Overall Impression:  This one is pretty decent, but it just feels a little lacking (specifically in the palate). Good, but not a favorite for me in this style.

Itzjerm (1157) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 17, 2012
From a can purchased at brewery, drank 4 months later. Aroma is a thick woody barrel age note. Very appealing. Very dark head which last for a long long time. Pretty amazing actually a very nice looking beer. Taste is a oak barrel bourbon flavor, if this is truly 8% pretty amazing. Very full body, which is top notch. Pretty much the best bourbon barrel out there. They use makers mark which is top notch like the beer.

fauxpunker (76) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Tap. Near black. No real head to speak of it fades away so fast. Very sweet for a stout. Not much hoppiness, but not much roast either. More of a desert drink to me. Heavy, thick, and clean mouth feel.

Can thanks to wnoble. Pour is black with a small fizzy tan head. Very roasty, light chocolate, light sweetness, mild background of bourbon, and even slight tartness. It’s decently drinkable, glad to try it.
