Rich chocolate fudge brownies with coconut. A bit on the boozy side and very hot. Sludgelike thickness. It is extremely tasty, but also hard to drink in any meaningful quantity and taxing on the palate. Still a damn good BA Stout, one of the best I’ve tried.

Small sample during Carnivale Brettanomyces ’16. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma has lots of chocolate, dark chocolate, some roast and sugar. Taste is very thick with dark chocolate, some roast, sweetness. Full body, light carbo. Nice stuff.

ctipping (1411) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2016
On tap at Peg’s. Originally reviewed 7/24/2011. Jet black body with an ample chocolate head. It dies down a little quickly to a brown ring around the top. Wisps of lace on the surface and as I swirl it around, staining the inside of the glass. Nice. Smells of bourbon, oh my. A second whiff reveals some coconut and strong dark chocolate. More bourbon ensues. Wow. Tastes much like the aroma, only richer. Bourbon with coconut and chocolate at first. A nice, caramel midrange flavor (with bourbon) followed by a rich, dark chocolate creaminess (with bourbon) and a coffee bitterness in the finish (with some bourbon). Loads of bourbon, but somehow it never overwhelms the other flavors. Great body. Thick and chewy, but it isn’t sweet. Hardly any alcohol burn. Perfect for a stout of this caliber. Nearly perfect in every way. One of the best bourbon stouts I’ve ever had. I’m stunned. I was prepared to drink a beer that had been overhyped, but it is delicious.

haukur (1800) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 21, 2016
Pitch black, little brown head. Aroma is really bourbon forward, some slight peatness, loads of cocoa and vanilla. A bit thin mouthfeel. Barrel is almost overpowering. Very nice though

Sample from bottle, huge thanks to Kermis for sharing. Opaque black beer with a nice lasting beige head. Dark chocolate aroma, vanilla, bourbon, licorice, raisin notes, figs, caramel, some tar and cocoa powder. Dark chocolate flavor, bourbon, vanilla notes, raisins, hazelnuts, some warming alcohol, caramel, tar notes, some licorice, and ice coffee. Delicious.
