Black, tan head. Big thick viscous mouthfeel with deep malt character of dark bread, licorice, roast, caraway seeds, nutty notes, big bourbon barrel character. Huge and complex and aptly named. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stoutnick (377) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
2013 vintage from Jerrys, Chicago. Black, no head, motor oil pour. Big bourbon quality to aroma. Taste is bourbon, but though sweet not sickly on finish. As it warms the abv comes out far more clearly. Also the flavours are a touch medicinal which is off-putting. Finish is a mild bitter astringency and bourbon. Nice beer, better than the base product, but still a little dull sadly.

Very dark and heavy, like the bottle says, "not your dad's 30 weight!". No head, barrel flavor forward with sweet mouthfeel. Nice aftertaste. Not to smokey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerenberger (1263) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, and toasted malts. A creamy deep brown pour with a tan ring and limited lacing. The taste is…AMAZING! Chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, hints of dark fruit, and oak. Full body and medium carbonatin. Rich, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is an exceptional beer. It has it all, a complex palate and a full bodyied creamy mouthfeel. Beer heaven.

Bottle from brewdog online
Rich and warming but gentle on the bourbon character allowing the base beer to come through, rich, dark, fruity, some vanilla and butterscotch, thick with low carbonation and a long warming finish.

375ml bottle shared by Phil @ Crossroads Spirits. Thanks Phil! Poured a thick oily black color with a small foamy tan head. Big boozy bourbon aroma, some oak, caramel, and dark fruit as well. Taste is much the same. Lots of bourbon and oak, and notes of toffee, roasted malt, and sweet dark fruits.
