Bottle@home.Pours clear, dark brown with a thin brown head. Aroma is lightly roasted malt, a hint of chocolate - but also this note of mass produced beer-aroma? Flavour is sweet, dark and some roasted notes too. Ends with a mild alcohol, wiskey note. Body is light to medium, thin texture and a average carbonation. Goes well with a homebaked bananacake, with a thick dark chocolate cover.

This bourbon stout is not barrel aged in bourbon casks, such as I might think. It is very fashionable to beer to be stored in all sorts of different types of oak barrels, ranging from the white wine barrels to cognac, whiskey and sherry etc. HB Brew has chosen the easy solution by simply adding a splash of bourbon in their stout, and it does not give the same character. It has otherwise good notes of little vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate, but rather quickly appears it with a remarkable acidity and high alcohol tang which probably caused by added bourbon. I think it’s a shame to ruin an otherwise good stout in this way.

On tap at DØE BeerFest 2012 [Backlog]. Perhaps I’d already had too much when I had this one, because I thought it was a bit boring. Noted that I’d expected more bourbon in the taste. Slightly disappointing.

Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a big head. The aroma is malt, roasted, chocolate, vanilla and some wood. The flavor follows the nose with additional notes of smoke. The palate is sweetness and roasted with a high level of carbonation. Overall a good beer.
