emerica56 (600) - Bristol, Rhode Island, USA - APR 12, 2010
Pours a thick tan head on top of a dark black brew. The nose is full of roasted almond, chocolate malt, roasted coffee, and malted milk. as you sip on it you can really taste the chocolate and coffee as they coat the sides of your mouth. there is an initial hop bitter bite but nothing too intense. There is a lot of flavor in this brew but nothing really popping out of it. overall it has great carbonation and i like the coating it leaves on your tongue and palate.

Bottle from total wine JAX. Pours the part of any ole’ imply stout. Big bourbon nose. Taste is wood, vanilla, bourbon, anise. Lighter body than many BBRIS. Mild booze burn, over all decent.

On tap at beer junction. It runs really hot. Lots of pepper and Mexican vanilla and some cinnamon. Lots of bourbon flavor but needs some time to rest.

Draft. Jet black pour with little head. Aroma is chocolate and bourbon barrel. Taste has a bizarre Windex thing going on and also adds some prominent vanilla on the finish. Not sure what’s going on here.

Salty toffee nose. Dark black with good legs. Bourbon cask aging provides a burnt caramel flavour with strong sweetness.

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 16, 2015
Label date of 12.30.13. Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 06.04.14. A: 2 finger tan head that retains well. Midnight black body with some red at the bottom. S: Vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate. T: Vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate dominate. Fig, very slight roastiness, and cherry are subtle. M: Creamy silk. Perfect carbonation. Not too chewy, just perfection. O: This is a well rounded BBA stout. It has complexity and is perfectly balanced. There is some alcohol burn on the back end. This is regularly $5.99 to $6.99 in the Seattle area, which is an incredible value.

Predicable. Yeah, it’s very bourbon, but the beer lacks some depth and body. The bourbon flavor is really on showcase here and really isn’t what I was looking for... aroma is bourbon with some roasted coffee notes. Taste is mostly bourbon with roasted coffee and faint vanilla.

Black pour. Fat beige head. Nice lacing. Coffee, cocoa. Initial bourbon noted that strengthens as it warms and lingers on the palate.

Awesome stout, huge coffee notes along with a burnt malt flavour - the bourbon barrels give it a bite!
