RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Pours black with a medium-brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, sambuca, earth, and char. Flavor is semi-sweet with similar notes of dark chocolate, licorice, earth, and slight vanilla. Finishes bitter and roasty with less bourbon flavor than Iíd expect. Substantial carbonation and average alcohol presence. I enjoy bourbon barrel aged imperial stouts generally, but this seemed to take on very little barrel character and was just pretty ho-hum.

On tap. First thing that hits the nose is bourbon, wow. Didnít realize it was the bourbon barrel stout when I ordered (didnít say on menu), but obvious as soon as you pull it towards your lips. Pours thin and dark with little head. Taste is boozy, like pouring am imperial stout into a glass previously filled with bourbon. Good beer, they hit the mark with this one. The one to have when youíre only having one.

dresden (1106) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
Thinner dark brown with no real head. Big boozy aroma, some marshmallow and oak. Very boozy even for 11%, whisky and burnt coffee. Kind of a nice sipping beer but itís too sweet and too boozy and too thin. So I guess itís not? I donít know I like it

Bomber via UDbeernut. Black as amoonless prarie night. Thin, kinda wimpy head. But other than that pretty much everything good in this world in a glass of yummy. The nose was oaky and boozy....oh lions tigers and bears! Moochas grassyass!

Bendrixian (1293) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pitch black pour with big burnt toast, woodsy barrel and some mint on the aroma. Has a little soapy note that iím not enjoying either. Those burnt toast and coffee grounds are present in the palate, a bit of alcohol burn. Has a sort of boring character. Not bad but I was expecting more.

DuffMan (7620) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
On tap @ the brewpub, the first stop on TvMís Bachelor Party Northwest Ale Trail Expedition. Okay, minus a point straight off for serving this in a schooner pilsener glass. Dark walnut brown, ring of white foam. Massive sweet rye aroma, eclipsing everything else. This is like smelling a bottle of Crown Royal! The same on the palate: hot, boozy sweet rye, with the base stout peeking out. Even with passing this around the group it remained unfinished.

Niall73 (2168) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle at home, picked up while visiting Jacksonville. Pours dark brown/black with a ruby edge and an off white head. Fairly grassy aroma, dark fruity rum stuff, licorice and treacle. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Dark toffee, booze, licorice, light whisky, rum, hazelnut, lots of coca-cola and burnt toffee to finish. Itís a bit thin and the booze is slightly harsh but its OK.

JStax (3535) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Draft pour into a Belgian tulip glass. Pours a near black with a beige head of foam. Good retention. The aroma is ashy and chocolate with some cigar character as well. Taste is sweet and ashy. As I drink it, I pick up more on the barrel. Big body and moderate carbonation.

Emeister84 (1446) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Aromas of bourbon, chocolate, some red wine, subtle burnt cherry, fennel. Black with a mostly lasting tan head, a little oily looking once the head fades. Dry, some astringency, earthy, woodsy, licorice and/or fennel flavors. Full bodied, boozy.

Huhzubendah (2820) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Dark brown near black bother you with a viscous beige head. Burnt toffee, ripe plum, oak, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt. Flavor is a bit lacking. Sweet, finishing with a slightly harsh tannic note. Middle of the road.

UDBeernut (2049) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle from total wine JAX. Pours the part of any oleí imply stout. Big bourbon nose. Taste is wood, vanilla, bourbon, anise. Lighter body than many BBRIS. Mild booze burn, over all decent.
