375 ml bottle shared by Chalumeaux. Thanks TJ. Aroma is mellow integrated bourbon notes with a roasted coffee beans and notes of coca nibs.
Whatever bourbon barrel they aged this in was a perfect vessel for this stout. The bourbon cuts through the cocoa nibs and coffee and provides balance.The booze is almost completely hidden with only a mild warming after the swallow. Body is mostly full but the alcohol may have thin it just a bit, no matter. If this stout was more reasonably priced, I would grab many bottles. This is pretty delightful, my kind of stout.

On draught at Ale Arsenal. Pours a deep black with moderate low brown head. The coffee and chocolate both show nicely here, but did not get much of the barrel. Very good.

12.7 fl.oz. bottle, served in a snifter glass. Poured black as night on a moonless night with an one finger mocha tan head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is fantastic and hits me with loads and loads of dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, dark roasted espresso beans, oak, molasses & dark fruit. Taste is just fingerlickin’ good: Dark chocolate, roasted espresso, Bourbon, molasses, oak, vanilla, dark fruit, licorice, caramel, creme brulee, whole wheat currant bread, raisins, soy sauce, salt, roasted nuts. Very thick and creamy mouthfeel. A full body with a chocolate, coffee and boozy bourbon finish. Absolutely divine nectar!
