Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle from Bankston. Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, booze, and wood. Taste is coffee, chocolate, roasted grain, and a nice woody spice finish.

Notes of coffee and chocolate on the nose. Appearance is dark brown with a small almost none existent head. Coffee dominants the flavor. The oak flavor is way in the background. The malt flavor has notes of chocolate and is one dimensional. Hop bitterness is medium low. Mouthfeel is medium with a low level of carbonation. Overall, the beer lacks the aroma and flavor expected from an oak aged stout. Malt flavor is one dimensional and the hop bitterness is too low. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours opaque black into the glass, thin off-white head. Aroma of bitter coffee and roasted barley. Head quickly dissipates, some vanilla and caramel notes. Something reminiscent of turpentine in the finish? Good, but for the money I like others better.

This was a nice surprise. Very toasty to start with chocolate and a vanilla/oak finish. Very tasty.

An incredible stout with superb aroma, appearance, finish and taste. I recommend this beer to any stout lover. On par with New Hollandís "Dragonís Milk."

Stew41 (1891) - Phuket, THAILAND - JAN 16, 2015
Light and maybe even a touch simple for the style. Coca and chocolate linings in the mouth; surprisingly it takes a chill very well indeed (summer drinking?). Sweet wood late.

dmac (5208) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2015
12oz bottle from Manahawkin Spirits. Poured a medium density pitch black under a smaller tight foamy off white head. Aroma started off with vegetable notes but luckily that quickly faded and didnít return. Other notes of burnt wood, light bourbon, charcoal, raosty, burnt malts, burnt toast and some vanilla extract. The body is odd, it seems like a thin mouthfeel at first but as you swallow it becomes more of a medium body, strong carbonation for a BA beer and at the very end comes the alcohol heat. Flavor is actually a little weaker than the aroma. Notes of charcoal, burnt wood, light bourbon and a touch of vanilla and dark chocolate.

DSG (10579) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Maxís place. Thanks zvikar. Clear dark brown, transparent in front of light, with a small tan head. Aroma of lots of coffee, some bourbon, vanilla, caramel and a bit of chocolate. Sweet flavor, caramelly, with coffee beans, some roast and a bit of vanilla. Medium-bodied, quite light for the stale. Decent.

egajdzis (5898) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Opaque black with a small, tan head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma or roasted malt, char, cocoa, wood, and light bourbon. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, wood, and light bourbon. Not bad, just nothing special about this one.

Bottle. While I love bourbon stouts this is probably the worst out there. Donít get me wrong, Iíll drink it all night long but the taste pales compared to Goose Island and others. Limited malt, sweetness, and bourbon flavor. The bud of bourbon stouts.
