Bottle from a generous trader. Pours very dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of milk sugar, bourbon barrel, oak, vanilla and milk chocolate. Medium body. The barrel treatment is a little overpowering compared to the rest of the beer.

gyllenbock (6897) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2016
On tap at Revolution. Almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, some bourbon and light coffee. Similar taste, also some light toffee. Fairly smooth and with a long finish. Tasty.

Marheb (4190) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 3, 2016
(En fût à la brasserie): Un lait frappé chocolat et cerise avec une touche d’acidité. La barrique est très enveloppante et vanillée.

mfhennig (270) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Big bourbon aroma upfront, hints of brown sugar and candy. Nice, nearly black color, lasting brown head, minimal lacing. Flavor is a bit sweet, smooth and creamy. A moderately boozy finish. Good stuff.

raoul_duke (235) - - NOV 27, 2015
2015 edition from the Bodega. Big foamy head, dissipates slowly. Chocolate, coffee, and booze in the nose. Smells a bit hot. Really nice milk chocolate flavor. A bit sweet, but very nice.

thorongil2 (2147) - , Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
(bottle) clear very dark brown colour with a tall brown head; aroma of wet wood, dried fruit, milk chocolate, then stewed fruit; creamy palate; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter and sour finish

MartinT (8957) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Wooden angles surface atop soft lactose and chocolatey sweetness in this enjoyable Barrel-Aged Milk Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam stays atop the darkness.
-Alcohol warms up the finish.
-The barrel profile isn’t as bright as most of their other BAged brews.
-I would have preferred better definition on the malt profile.

Bottle.

AndyReynolds (1079) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is strong with bourbon. Notes of brown sugar and vanilla stand out. In the mouth, the bourbon becomes overpowering, but the palate is nice and creamy. Actually, a bit lighter than expected. It finishes very well, and gets more complex as it warms. Solid.
