Had it on tap. Pours black with a finger length, tan head that dissipates into a cap and leaves mild lacing. Aroma and taste is bourbon. Taste also provides some roasted malts. Big, creamy mouthfeel that is followed by a long, bourbon finish. A rep from Revolution sat next to Tortman18 and I in the bar we were at, and he bought us each one of these, so that was pretty sweet. Thanks Revolution.

Dark brown/black color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of smoky malt, oak, vanilla, molasses, licorice, & bourbon; Flavor of roasted sweet malt, caramel, molasses/syrup, chocolate, and dark fruit; Nicely balanced; Aroma is classic barrel - but body was on the thin side. Pretty good overall though.

Bottle on RBWG bus. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. Aroma is milk sugar and chocolate. Sweet milk flavor and light booze. Very impressive.

ARH (707) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap, poured into a snifter. A strong bourbon note blossoms through at first, but it settles, and a chocolate, caramel, and lactose aroma come through with hints of the warm bourbon still lingering. Warm caramel syrup, vanilla, and cream aromas settle in by mid glass. The beer is nearly opaque and dark brown, topped by a big, soft, dense beige foam head. The head reduces to medium dense soapy ring wit a wispy surface, and leaves a light, but dense, sheet lace on the glass. The taste is a medium high sweet and a mellow, medium bitter. The texture is slick and syrupy with a soft, fluffy carbonation and a medium full body. Flavors of bourbon are dominant - caramel, wood, touch of a burnt note, and chocolate - with just a light boozy warmth. After awhile, the flavor settles on nutty chocolate and caramel. It finishes with a pleasant, mild warmth to accompany flavors of nuts, vanilla, chocolate, and caramel. The aftertaste is a mildly lingering bourbon wood and caramel.

A very nice barrel aged milk stout. Strong bourbon start with a nice milky creamy finish. Pours black with a tan head. Very easy to drink for the alcohol content. Had at home out of a bomber ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Atom (1592) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Bomber dated Nov 12.12, pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Nice mellow not overbearing bourbon aroma, chocolate, molasses, oak, licorice. Taste of deep smooth chocolate, a perfect level of bourbon flavor, light oak, lactose adding sweetness and a slight slick texture, with a pleasent bitter coffee on the finish. 2 years had treated this really well, delicious and dangerously drinkable!!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle:   Fairly black, thin to moderate foamy beige head, little lacing.   Sweet prunish nose, fruity, roasty, and with some graham cracker and oatmeal cookie.   Smells good.   Very similar on the tongue, bubbley, a bit spritzy in carbonation.   A touch of sweet soy comes out as well.   A little warming, but under control.   Pretty sweet, not very heavy.   Too easy to drink.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not a heavy example, pretty much middle of the road.   Clean finish, lingering sweet soy, prune juice, roasted malts, graham cracker, and oatmeal cookies.   I can’t complain about this one.   Thanks Kevin!

jsquire (3641) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Dark beer with a thin slick of a tan head. Great nose of bourbon sweetness, toasted grains and alcohol. Excellent use of a barrel to enhance a beer. The bourbon is not dominate but very present. Buttery bourbon, dark brown sugar, toast, lactose and juicy dark fruit. Long burnt grain finish with warming alcohol sense. Great beer.

Ratman197 (10546) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2014
Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of brown sugar, bourbon, cocoa, metallic notes and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, bourbon, cocoa and fruitiness with a smooth lingering bourbon finish.

Poured from a bomber into a Revolution Brewing Company pint glass darkest brown with a tan head that was huge then faded into a nice lacing down the glass. Aroma molasses. Cocoa. Slight bourbon. Flavor is chocolate sweetness with some coconut. Some coffee some booze. A bit thin to the palate but flavor is all there.
