Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small beige head. I was expecting an overly bourbony stout because of the low abv. What I found was some roasted malt, light chocolate and a mild bourbon character. The negative was the unexpected acidic sweaty character to the flavor which I did not enjoy.

As low key a bourbon barrel-influenced stout as I’ve encountered. Nice balance to the coffee and vanilla, but not much punch -- which, to me at least, I expect. And 5.3 alcohol? They’re not even trying.

Draft. Poured black color with an average brown frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt and bourbon wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark chocloate bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration.

On tap at Dutch’s. Dark brown, near black color, not completely opaque. Thin tan head, couple ropes and dots of lace, mostly loose. Very nice coffee, vanilla, bourbon barrel wood flavors. Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Medium body. Soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly sticky finish. Maybe a little sweet, and a little thin for my liking, although it is nice to have the bourbon flavor with none of the bite. Compared with the Lunatic, I liked this one based off my initial sample tastes more, but later with a larger portion I ended up preferring the Lunatic.

VEry light flavors in a bourbon aged stout. Some fruitiness, light bourbon, not a huge amount of coffee.

Good beer, not much aroma. A little bitter, otherwise smooth coffee and caramel flavors.

On tap at Sugar Maple. Pours dark chocolate brown. Aroma has oak, bourbon, and dark chocolate. Mild coffee flavor blended with oak and bourbon. Thin palate with bourbon finish. Not bad.

Dont detect much bourbon in this. Mostly vanilla, like oaky vanilla. Wouldnt guess it was bourbon, more oak chip aged.

Pours ouch black with a full dark tan head. Flavors are coffee, bourbon, a hint of dark fruit and bready oak (if that's a flavor lol). Crisp and dry finish with a reasonable abv make this a very drinkable and excellent stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
