3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 Won this during free beer week from Foppa. Black pour with big tan bubbles around the edge and a tan haze over it. Aroma is sweet bourbon with a touch of chocolate. Taste is a rather sour bourbon with semisweet coco. Has a wierd tart taste on the back of the pallate. But the lingering aftertaste is smooth bourbon. A little rough around the edges. Decent but not in the same league as the bigger bourbon stouts out there.

This rating is for the 2011 version. Both the 07 and 08 were better. Lots of caramel and toffee. Not roasty at all. Creamy and full bodied. Very mellow and nice.

750ml bottle. Pours a dark black color with some ruby highlights and a huge tan head that lasts leaving nice lacing. Aroma has a nice bourbon presence along with some vanilla, dark fruit, and some roasted malt.Taste is sweet up front with notes of vanilla bourbon, dark fruit and chocolate, giving way to some roasted bitterness with hints of coffee and licorice, and a nutty finish. A faint presence of alcohol as it warms. Full bodied, smooth and creamy with a nice carbonation level.

Bourbon oak vanilla on the nose. Medium light body. Sort of a woody finish. Enjoyable, but nothing fantastic

Robe noire surmontée d’un collet beige épais. Arôme: bourbon (intéressant!), vanille, chocolat, fruits noirs, bois, fumé. Le goût suit, quoique de manière moins intense. Bonne IS.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). 2011 vintage. Shared by BeerGolem, thanks! Black with a medium creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma is enticing and complex with bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits, caramel, wood, milk chocolate and light roasted malt. Taste is moderately sweet and is less intense/complex than aroma, though the same components are presents. Medium body (at times, it seems thin especially for the style). Moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy (really "slightly") and somewhat silky. It’s a good barrel-aged RIS with a nice aroma, but not one for the ages. With all the RIS available on the market, this one doesn’t deserve more than one try.
