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!

Super-heavy overall in the hourbon department, but I don’t mind that so much! Aroma = Bourbon. Taste is chocolate cake soaked in bourbon with vanilla, toasted coconut and wood tones. Black in color of course with tan head. Could the boubon be dialed back a little to taste more of the underlying beer? Yes, but I still love it just how it is. Notes: Bottle from my friend Joe who was visiting San Diego and picked it up at the brewery upon release. Also sampled some with Shaun Hill, who happened to have a bottle arrive in the mail when we were visiting the brewery.

Catch up rating from Saturday’s RS bottle share. The rumors of infection were swirling, and indeed something seemed a little off here. At that price point, I would feel ripped off....

Had the Cellar 3 version. A very nice interesting bourbon barreled stout. Pours a velvety black with a tan head. Smells of vanilla, bourbon, macadamia nuts and cherries. Taste is light, not super thick, with vanilla and cherries and a finish of boozy bourbon. Had in the bottle.

Big bourbon character. Much coconut character.Still pretty drinkable. Fuller mouthfeel, thicker black appearance. Interesting and worth a try.

Sdaniel90 (746) - Mexico City, MEXICO - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle 75cl. Opaque dark brown with a frothy to minimal brown head. Sharp aromas of bourbon, dark chocolate, vanilla, spices. Robust bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Sweet and heavily bitter, with tremendous dark fruit and malt character, and a punishing bourbon finish. Blunt and heavy, very pleasant.

Bomber... Aroma is booze and dark fruit. Appearance is black with a tan head. Taste is sweet, dark malt, and booze with hints of toffee and caramel. Palate is a medium mouthfeel. Overall, a really well done beer. Very nice barreled beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

_angst_ (4261) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2015
Draught @ CBC 2015. Pours viscous black with a small creamy dark mocha head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate, coconut milk, green chili and bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel is round, tiny viscous, slightly astringent, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, butterscotch, vanilla fudge, charred buttery wood, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate, green chili and bourbon alcohol. A good stout with less than optimal barrel treatment. Tons of green chili and buttery woody vanillin.
