Draft. A dark brown beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt both sweet and roasted combined with notes of bourbon. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, bourbon, and wood, as well as a light note of vanilla, leading to a roasted finish.

Tasted at the 5th Annual Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Fest on 11/13/2010. This stout pours a dark brown color from the tap. Small to medium sized tan foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, bourbon and sweet. A medium to full bodied. The malts are chocolate and coffee. The hops are herbal and earthy. Hints of bourbon, vanilla and wood. Very sweet. Nice carbonation. Great sipping beer. Mouthfeel us full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Draft sample at FOBAB 2010. Pours a dark brown color with a small beige head. The aroma is pretty nice bourbon barrel- vanilla, oak, bourbon- with mild coffee and roasted malts, chocolate, and cream. The flavor and palate drop out a little bit, with cream, vanilla, and a weird plastic-like medicinal note drowning out the coffee and roast a bit. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Good beer, but a little off.

Bistro barrel aged fest 2010. Pours black, as far as I can tell, with a well-formed one-finger tam head and decent lacing. The aroma is excellent - lots of capuccino as well as bourbon barrel notes. A great base stout also comes through, with chocolate, roast, and vanilla. The flavor is absolutely huge and goes on forever. Great espresso, along with rich dark chocolate, vanilla, roast, sugary sweetness, oak, and bourbon. There’s also a spiciness to it, almost like chile peppers were added. Very complex. Full-bodied, decadent and rich, with a good carbonation level. This may be a little amateurish of me, but I liked this beer a lot. Really awesome and intense stuff.

BBB63 (5964) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2010
FoBAB 2010: Deep brown with a small frothy head. The aroma has notes of coffee, vanilla wafers, toast and roast, butterscotch and a hint of chlorine. The taste is boozy and medicinal with a over laying chemical influence. There is some coffee, chocolate, oak, and earthy tobacco tones under the crap. The mouth feel is smooth but thin, WTF, way to ruin a perfectly nice coffee stout. Something went wrong with this beer.

Sampled @ FoBAB 2010. Dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Taste is of more of the same with a sweet tartness to the finish. Decent brew.
