Humongous from go to whoa - choc vanilla coconut roasted malt - super syrupy - very very rich - too much so - hard to finish my glass - thankfully shared the bottle! Definitely sensory overload - enjoyed but more is not necessarily better.

Pours a deep dark brown color. Small tan head head that lasted throughout. Aromas of bourbon and wood. Flavor was a lot of bourbon, hints of smoke, chocolate. Full bodied and creamy. Tasted more bourbon than beer. WOW, this is a flavorful beer!!

My first bourbon barrel aged beer. I felt the bourbon overwhelm the expected flavors of chocolate and coffee you expect from a stout. That being said it was pretty smooth with minimal alcohol taste and the bourbon comes through loud and clear. An intense and fun beer to try at the NC brewery at the end of an awesome brewery tour.

A: Pitch black with a nougat coloured head that goes away quite fast. N: Vanilla, coffee, cocoa, some fruityness to it as well. T: Vanilla, coffee, chocolate, bourbon O: Not as heavy as expected. Some heat from alcohol. Nice balance between sweetness and tart hint. Light bitterness as well. Very nice even though I could enjoy even more barrel aging.
