Sarlacc83 (1342) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Growler from RBSG. Thanks! A: Mahogany black body, cappuccino head. N: Bourbon, cocoa, vanilla, coffee, some char. T: Sweet and lightly bitter. M: Medium body, light carbonation, some alcohol. O: A really nice change of pace. I’m a fan of foreign stouts, and I think this one works very well. The bourbon integrates without overpowering - a fact I try to applaud. Worthy stuff, IMO.

mcberko (9224) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
Growler, pours black with a reddish tinge and no head. Aroma brings out notes of bourbon, vanilla and dry grainy notes that dry it out. Flavour is dry and hot, with smoky notes that dominate. Woody and smoky. Low complexity but clean and sipable. Decent.
