Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Quite the gushed as I remove the wax. Quite a bit of head and tan lacing. Dark, dark brown. Smell is bourbon and a good amount of oak. Hints of coconut. Taste is similar though quite muted. Surprisingly little taste for a barrel aged stout. Mouthfelel is fairly thin with a lot of carbonation. Drinkable, but not because I want to. Somewhat disappointing.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown / black with a big tan head. Nose held vanilla and bourbon notes along with some bitter sweet chocolate. Lightly acidic on the palate but pretty tasty overall.

dmac (4093) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Wax topped bottle shared at the BA gathering. Poured a pitch black body with a super long lasting beige head. Aroma is fantastic with noes of vailla, bourbon, oak and chocolate pudding.The body is a little thinner then I was expecting being only a medium density compared to the pitch black body along with softer carbontion. The flavor is great but just a bit boozy and burnt compared to the aroma, notes of bourbon, chocolate, tar and burnt toast. Really nice stuff, just wish I had a whole bottle for myself.

boFNjackson (4153) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured near black with a thick, frothy, light brown head. Very chalky, with lots of roast. Oak, brown sugar, not as much vanilla you’d expect from bourbon barrel aging. A good toffee and caramel, toasty sweetness too.

Bottle. Pours fairly black color with a tan 2 finger head. The bourbon aromas are the first thing that hits me as I take a smell followed by dark roast notes and vanilla. As I take my first sip I soon realize the mouthfeel to me is just too light. I don’t think these bottles are infected but just that the carbonation level is fairly high for this style and really takes away from the beer. The tastes I get are the bourbon, oak, earthy, vanilla, and dark roast. Really the flavor I like but I just can’t get passed the carbonation. Too bad.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Sampled from 500 ml bottle (gold wax) and shared by DalzAle. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a thick and rocky tan head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate malt, fruity apple/pear, bourbon, and a touch of vanilla. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of chocolate malt, bourbon with some noticeable apple and vanilla. Finish is dry with mostly a dark malt aftertaste with just a hint of bourbon.

A: Pours a nice dark black hue. Small tan head. No retention or lace. S: Aromas of nice roasted malt. Chocolate, coffee, molasses, and dark fruit. T: Wonderful roast. Lots of chocolate, coffee, and sweet molasses. Light barrel notes. Hints of oak, coconut, and vanilla. Complex, tasty and good. M: Medium in body, sweet with perfect barrel notes. I thought it would be infected but I picked up none of those notes. Nice and tasty. Worth the trade. D: Nice and drinkable. Tasty goodness in a bottle.
