Big thanks to KP for the giant mason jar o’ beer. Poured almost black with a ruby tint and a tan head. Roasted aroma with chocolate and a balanced amount of bourbon. Roasted flavors that matches the aroma. Creamy with a light carbonation and a bitter finish.

Growler/mason jar shared by kp: Pours a rich opaque black with a thick, nicely lacing tan head. Pleasant aroma of rich bourbon and light roasted malt. Starts with a nice balanced sweetness and malty caramel with some dark chocolate. Finishes with a good bourbon character but no warming alcohol. A very nice bourbon stout. Thanks kp!

Growler from KP: Poured dark, dark brown with a thick brown head. Chocolately, nutty aroma.Huge chocolate, bourbon flavor with nuts. Burning alcohol to me. Damn tasty though.

Black body with ruby around the edges. There’s a good creamy head on top that pits nicely. The bourbon and oak over the stout flavors blend nicely. Good roasty malt with a slightly bitter finish.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2005
Smoke, chocolate, coffee, bourbon, pine? Brown/black hue; tan, frothy, average sized head. Moderate to heavily sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter finish. Light alcohol. Medium-heavy body, oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: the bourbon flavor is a bit sharp, but Damn Good!

The Bourbondaddy is a stout aged in a used bourbon barrel. I had this last year at about this time, and I remember liking it, but I don’t remember much else about it. This time around I actually paid attention to what I was drinking. It’s a little bitter at first, but after that it’s very good. Nothing extremely special, it tastes the way it should - a medium stout with a little bourbon flavor added.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Draft at Fest: Opaque with a small tan head which diminished leaving an oily layer, good lace. The aroma has notes of vanilla, oak, whisky, roasted and burnt malts, pineapple, floral hops, and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts with a coffee and mocha nature. A nice balanced bourbon and vanilla kick, not over the top. Fruity and smoky finish. The feel is rich and smooth. Another winner from New Albanian, worth a trip to seek out their beers. Sweet (almost like an Imperial) !

I tried this after it was aged for 18 weeks; the assistant brewmaster said he liked it best at 12. Nevertheless, I thought the mouthfeel was fairly thin. I don't understand why they use nitro, although the creaminess factor might play a role. Aroma was that of a stout with a dash of Crown Royal or Jim Beam. I don't anticipate trying this again but appreciate the novelty involved.
