Pours an opaque black with a small light brown ring around the glass leaving traces of lace. Aroma is bourbon, oak, roasted malts, dark fruits, chocolate, and faint alcohol. Flavour is bourbon, assertive black licorice, dark fruits, warming alcohol, cocoa, and roasted malts.

Black pour with a small tan head. Bourbon and vanilla aroma. Bourbon dominates in the taste, with hints of roast and vanilla trying to get through. Thick body. A bit on the one dimensional side.... The bourbon dominates to the point where it hinders the stouts other qualities somewhat.

stoutnick (454) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2013
Black, small tan head. Aroma is choc fudge, very mild booze - perfect smell. Taste is not very very full bodied, mild bitter roasted malt, nice choc-bourbon flavour. Slight smokey. Overall, great barrel aged beer.

maley1 (743) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
Dark black pour with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and bourbon. Taste of roasted malts, unsweetened chocolate, coffee, leather and bourbon. Some beers are better barrell aged but I found this to be the opposite. Bourbon flavour is slightly to intense over riding the true flavour and character of this beer. Too bad cause I know there is a very good beer hidden in there.

Reimer96 (1173) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Pours an opaque black with a small brown head. This beer is ridiculously balanced for a 10 point brew. Aroma of bourbon, more bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts, wood, sweet dried fruits and some slight alcohol warmth. Taste is bourbon, wood, chocolate, roasted malts, sweet dried fruit and a nice smooth alcohol warmth on the finish. Still can?t believe how smooth this is, great job paddock wood!

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Black with a dark brown head that fades quickly. Lots of milk chocolate / hot chocolate powder, some bourbon yet mellow, bit of vanilla, slightly roasted malts but quite sweet. Sweet, quite smooth, moderate to thin body, lots of chocolate, low carbonation, some vanilla, slight bitterness and alcohol towards the end, somewhat dry. Very interesting and tasty

pintbypint (2560) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
Tap at Underground. Black in colour, low sitting light brown cap. Some light spotty lace.Nose is malty, big chocolate. Taste has rich chocolate notes, some sweetness, coffee bean roastiness, whisky and vanilla. Finishes with cocoa and roast with slight dark fruits, lingering whiskey and some bitterness. Light wood notes. Body is medium to full, light mouthfeel. Was a big fan of the cherry version of this, but this isnít as good.

dfinney23 (1586) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2013
Any beer with sock monkeys on the label canít be all bad. Plenty of whiskey on the nose and the tongue without overwhelming chocolate and coffee malt of the beer itself. Good stuff.

DuffMan (6549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle. Inky viscous pour with a finely bubbled low brown head. Sweet bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, bread, treacle, lots of bourbon but not harsh. The body has just enough malt to carry the bourbon load, and overall this remains rich and satisfying, although to be truly outstanding it coul e little more malt-heavy, a little chewier. But I loved it anyway, just to be clear.
