COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Silva Stout took a lot of patience. We aged our Double Stout in oak bourbon barrels for seventeen months. Flavors are very complex. It starts off with dark chocolate truffles rolled in cocoa powder. Next is the vanilla and wood notes, with rich cherry-like fruitiness. After racking and filtering the ale, we blended in just the right amount of freshly brewed Double Stout to provide the perfect balance of bourbon barrel aging and freshness. Enjoy the culmination of years of flavor development now – no further aging required!

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 12, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark reddish/brown/black with a small, dense, creamy tan head. Big aroma of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, wood and alcohol. The flavor is loads of semi-sweet chocolate, vanilla and roasted malt with some tanic wood and bourbon heat. Full body with a soft carbonation and a long, warming finish. I really like this beer, it has a big bourbon presence but still drinkable and smooth.

Backlogged rating from 2010, OBriens Barrel Night. I had been looking forward to trying this for some time. Oily black with a killer bourbon and chocolate malt aroma. Awesome barrel character throughout with a robust flavor. Everything maintains balance. Saucy!

hopscotch (8539) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. Terrific retention. The bouquet is a whirlpool of dark chocolate, coconut, vanilla, bourbon, pouch tobacco and blackstrap molasses. Full-bodied with a motor oil mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet tobacco, blackstrap, deeply roasted malt and Cuban mocha. Lengthy, scorched, bittersweet finish. World class beer provided by giarcsr!

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2011 My beer of the year 2010. Bottle. Black with a thin soft brown head. Aroma of thick chocolate mud soaked in bourbon. Only need one sip and then can pull more and more from the teeth and gums. Thick delicious chocolate fudge, licorice and bourbon. WOW!

jonno (2130) - JAPAN - DEC 28, 2010
Maltesers! Sweet Creamy beer with a good layer of Bourbon. Rich. A little too much bourbon and sweetness at times for me, but otherwise truly top drawer. Like the vanilla and slight woody notes too. Very much like drinking an alcoholic double malt chocolate milkshake with a measure of bourbon thrown in! Thanks to PeteinSD for this one!
