3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap at Heorot and also bought a bottle and enjoyed a few days later. There is really no difference in taste between each of the two ways. This is one of the strongest bourbon-influenced stouts that I have had so far, which is saying quite a lot. The aroma is oozing of bourbon and chocolatey goodness, and the color is approaching complete darkness upon pour. From the initial smell you would believe it to be very pungent with its bourbon taste, almost to an overwhelming state, but it really isnít. Other than a slight (very slight) dip in aftertatse, this is a terrific bourbon barrel stout.

Sample. Low fluffy white lasting head. Yep pitch black body. Sweet coffee vanilla wood aroma and flavor with mild hints of bourbon. Low carbonation, long sweet finish. Normally I am not a big fan of bourbon barrel aged beers but this was a nice and pleasant surprise. Comples and alcohol well hidden.

13 oz bottle served in a tulip glass. Pours inky black, thin mocha head, slightly thin body for the style. Aroma is sweet, oaky bourbon up front; lightly roasty dark chocolate malt. Taste is clean roasty malt, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, figs. Light bourbon on the finish. Solid barrel-aged stout, plenty of nice barrel flavors, could use a bit more malt depth.

12 oz bottle from Caboose in Ashland, VA the stout pours a deep black with no head but a tan collar. The aroma of bourbon, chocolate and roasted malt greets you. The body is full and creamy with very soft carbonation. The taste is wonderful with bourbon and dark chocolate. The finish is like an alcohol induced chocolate milk shake.
