Leighton (9839) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. This was a mean beer, man. Oil black pour with a monstrous, dark tan head. Plenty of roasted malts, cocoa and some coffee in the aroma. Hints of booze. Deep flavor, good chocolate and burnt malt character, mostly sweet with some bitter notes creeping in towards the end. Big body, a little chewy, warming, modestly carbonated. Finished relatively sweet with lingering chocolate. Fantastic.

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 16/09/2010 As Bourbon Barrel Stout Oaked aroma. Beige head. Black strong in alcohol hoppy and fruity with a bitter and dry vanilla and coffee roast finish.

JoeMcPhee (8189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
Tap at Hamilton’s. Very dark black beer with a thick creamy tan/brown head. Aroma is really great. Loads of rich dark chocolate and malted milk character. Sweet vanilla and a light bourbony character. Some light caramel and a bit of spicy woody tannins. Very full-bodied and chewy. Sweet milk chocolate, malted milk, and a soft herbal bitterness. Very restrained with excellent integration between the sweet vanilla/caramel bourbony flavour and the deep dark chocolate. Very rich, silken, and unctuous mouthfeel. One of the better barrel-aged impys I’ve had in a long time.

blipp (5679) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Draft. Pours near black with a tan head. Sweet bourbony aroma with some lighter roasty notes. The flavor has a better roast/bourbon balance, with some lighter oaky notes, a hint of coffee grounds, and a light hoppy finish. Nice.

On tap at Hamiltons. Black with a fizzy tan head. Great chocolate and bourbon aroma and taste with a whiskey and coffee, semi-dry, and alcoholic finish. Yum!

(11/2/08) Draught sample at Hamilton’s in San Diego. Black-colored with a big light brown head. Aroma of bourbon, pralines and some dark fruity notes. Sweet flavor with roastiness, dark chocolate, some burnt notes and some fruity hints. Medium to full-bodied with quite a bit of carbonation. A very good Stout.
