(En fût à la brasserie): Un lait frappé chocolat et cerise avec une touche d’acidité. La barrique est très enveloppante et vanillée.

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.

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.

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. 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.

Une bière très foncée, pas tout à fait noire, avec quelques rayons acajou et qui ne mousse pas tellement se présente à moi. Des vapeurs alcoolisées puissantes et des notes boisées perçantes relèguent des les arômes chocolatés au second rang. Des mûres et autres fruits noirs sont aussi de la partie. Le chocolat récupère son dû en bouche, mais cette impression fruitée joue encore les trouble-fêtes. Et c’est parfait ainsi. Très tannique et boisée, mais surtout très onctueuse en bouche. Superbe produit.

DuchessOfIowa (142) - Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Bourbon is slight in aroma with nutty and chocolate there also. Body is kinda thin on the mouth feel for what is expected with Oats and lactose. Very thin white head that disappears quickly. Sweet beginning and goes to a nice subtle dry finish.

Dark dark brown tan head. Vanilla smell and some fennel. Great rich palate. Flavors of cocoa and some licorice and lots of vanilla. Finishes rich.
