Rating #53 for 2012 750ml bottle cold, from a shaker glass. Aroma of cappuccino, cream, very light roasted malt. 1/2 inch rocky tan head over extremely dark red tinted liquid, consistent ring of lacing. Taste cappuccino, burnt malt, slight bitter coffee. Medium palate, starts off with high carbonation mellows out towards the end. Slightly above average stout.

On tap at the Black Squirrel in DC. Served in a taster glass. Pours a very dark brown with a thin light mocha head and some spots of lacing. The nose carries a heavy dose of bourbon on top of a bit of chocolate. A bit of roast and vanilla in the background. Flavor is similarly dominated by bourbon, making this a bit one dimensional, yet still nice. Body is medium-full with low-average carbonation and a bit of booze through the finish. A fine enough barrel-aged beer, but not something I’d seek out again.

Butters (3857) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Sampled at the First Inaugural Raleigh Rare and Vintage Beer Festival. Hazy brown pour with ring of tan head. One whiff of the aroma and it is very evident that this thing is barrel aged. Sweet and creamy, big roast and bourbon notes that overpower the coffee notes, but still is a well balanced beer.

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - FEB 17, 2012
Big nose of chocolate, coffee, very slight bourbon and maybe vanilla and coconut. Not sure. Very complex. Spent ten minutes just smelling it; deep dark brown, big caramel coloured head and sticky lacing; sweet and not cloying, rounded so there are subtle hints of acid and salt, noticeably bitter but not hoppy; Rich and full bodied, well carbonated without being fizzy, sticky and a slightly creamy texture, short finish; Big impression.

emacgee (4146) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Brown pour with a thin tan head. Very light pour for a stout. Musty bourbon nose, vanilla and alcohol. Hot and bourbony, singular with hints of coffee. Light bodied and warm finish.

I had a couple of these. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, and coffee. Great coffee and bourbon balance, but still light enough that it was easy to drink. I enjoyed this one a lot.
