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.

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 brown pour, wispy tan head. Nose is tart cherry, vanilla, oak. Similar taste with a lot of cherry in the middle and oak on the back end. Very thin.

Bottle. Fairly thin appearance, a milk chocolate liquid coalescing to deep brown in the glass. Fluffy latte-colored head. The aroma’s slammed with fresh coconut strips, smoked beef and chocolate syrup. The flavor has a similar melange -- chocolate and tangy dark fruits with coconut and a splash of whiskey -- but in more subdued form. Body, as expected, is pretty thin; carbonation is mild, peppery and fizzy. Not as well-developed a stout or barrel flavor as I’d like -- a little thin and mild. Too tangy as well.

On tap at Revolution Tap Room. Pour is close to black with some slight red tinting, small off-white head. Aroma is of milk chocolate with a huge amount of bourbon/oak. Slight cream/roast. Flavor is much like the aroma with a sweet and roasted front but finishes with bourbon. This is now my favorite beer, I cannot get enough of it!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Thick, viscous pour. Colorless with a tan head that quickly fades away. Aroma of milky sweet cocoa nibs, vanilla, light oak, heavy sweet-cream undertones, chocolate, bourbon is mild but adds a robust pungency to the back-end. Flavor is heavily chocolate up-front; lots of cocoa nibs, cream, modestly roasted malt. The barrel brings out mostly notes of vanillin & woody-oak, with the bourbon & booziness itself being tertiary. Finish of oak, baker’s chocolate, residual malt sweetness, & lightly charred nuts. Could use a bigger mouth feel, as it’s just a tad thin. Overall, quite nice.

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.
