Bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours brown/black with a creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak. Full bodied. Flavor is lightly sour, vinous, bourbon, dark fruit, coffee and chocolate and oak astringency. Very nice. Very complex.

Appearance: Pours root beer brown with a sparse film of swirls.

Aroma: Cola, chocolate, peppermint patties. Graham cracker.

Taste: Roasted malt, burnt roast, vanilla, whiskey/sweet liquor.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall: Tasty, but a bit all over the place. I would drink this now if you have a bottle or two.

Sample at the brewpub. This blend pours a murky brownish-black color with a thin beige head that diminishes quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of malt and chocolate with bourbon in the background. Full-bodied with flavors of dark chocolate, malt, bourbon and a bit of butterscotch or toffee. The finish is roasty with a dark malty aftertaste. Above average overall.

Thanks to goryshkewych for the hookup. Cheers, George! Pours a medium stout brown with a tan head. Nose is whiskey, chocolate, spice, burn, and some vanilla as it warms with subtle brandy notes trying to emerge but being forced back by the whiskey heat. Flavor is chocolate and fudge up front, light booze with some subtle brandy in the mid, and some boozy whiskey in the finish. Light to medium in body considering the beers involved here. Somewhat boozy, but I am curious how it will age.

I donít know how excited I should be to try this. This is made of a 50/50 mix of Brandy Barrel Superfly and Bourbon Barrel Middle of Nowhere Stout. I had the BBMoNS yesterday and though it was good enough, so that Iím not worried about. Rather, the BBS has been polarizing. On-tap when it was released, I thought it was wonderful. From a bottle a month ago, I thought it sucked. Thus Iím not sure how mixing these beers will result. I guess thereís only one way to find out. Poured into a snifter. Bottle #20 of 336. 3.5 A: This looks more like the stout for obvious reasons. Dark brown, nearly black color. Two fingers of creamy tan head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Interesting. The stout seems to be driving the nose, with the amber adding subtle complexity. All of the components of the BBMoNS are apparent - the maple syrup, the honey, the roastiness, and even the oats. The bourbon is a bit diluted from the original, which is to be expected, but still adds leather, earthy woodiness, vanilla, and some melon fruitiness. The amber itself is tough to find, though it seems to have contributed the the caramel that is also found in the stout. Rather, the biggest player from the BBS is the brandy. It gives a well integrated vinous character along with grape fruitiness. Booze is apparent, but not distracting 3.0 T: Iím not really sure what to think of the taste. One sip I get bourbon and stout, the next I get brandy and stout, and after that I get bourbon and brandy. I just canít get on board with this. It seems strange and muddled, but isnít really bad overall. What I pick up most is roastiness, maple syrup, leathery bourbon, brandy, vanilla, and some astringency from the barrels. 3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and smooth. 3.5 D: I honestly donít know what to think of this. I either love it or hate it, but I decided to split the difference in my scores. Either way, it was an interesting experiment that Iím glad I got to try. Iím not a huge fan about the Cellar Cuvee series as a whole actually...until Brad decides to mix a Rum Barrel Oil with a Bourbon Barrel Kopi Dark App. I do like how this has come together, but Iím still not crazy about it.

Thanks to Craig for this. Thick dark pour. Sweet malt, roasted grain and dark fruit aroma. Light sweet malt body with tons of dark fruit and bourbon in the taste. Good stuff.

Courtesy of Craig. It pours mahogany with thin mocha head. The aroma offers up chocolate brownie, bakerís chocolate, some booziness and dark roasted malts mixing with some coffee notes. The taste has yummy dark chocolate, milk chocolate, dark roasted maltiness and some bourbon. Midway and into the finish it picks up an additional note in the form of vanilla. Yummy!

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a bubbly tan head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a treacle flavor with a slightly sour oaky finish. This is an unusual brew that is quite interesting.

On tap at Jackie-Os. Dark black color, thin tan head, nice thick lace. Light carbonation, creamy smooth texture. Dark fruit, some spice, good balanced bourbon note, some chocolate. Kinda stouty, indeed. Bit on the boozy side with the bourbon, though, and sweet for sure.
