On tap at Deepwater Grille in Ashland. Pours dark black with thick off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, mint and sweet malt. Every flavor is apparent in the taste and all at different times. Great.

This beer is the embodiment of comfort and security. the aroma of coffee and mint with flirt of burbon. the guy who said "Peppermint schnapps...aroma" clearly has his head up his butt. the flavor is that of dark roasted coffee and fresh dark chocolate with a bit of Bourbon all wrapped in christmas mint.

Black with a smaller tan head. Peppermint schnapps, cola and coffee in the aromas. Flavors actually cling to the aromas with an added dose of cocoa. For me barrel aging in this one has pushed it to a liqueur type quaff. Slick and smooth in feel. An interesting libation

SUPERIOR FALLFEST: Black Coloring with Sandy Head. Wonderful Complex Aroma...of Chocolate, Sweet Malt, Mint with a Light Coffee and Bourbon Whiskey Notes Mixing In and Out. Roasted Coffee Notes Balancing out Sweet Malt - Chocolate and Mint Notes Most Prominant with a Slight Whiskey Background.. Overall, the Bourbon Aging Seems to Push Out the Chocolate Mint Flavors to Make it Really Creamy, Rich Chocolate/Minty Brew That’s Quite Enjoyable!

BLBF. Pours a deep murky black, with a fringe of ruby. Topped with a sparse bubbly tan head. Aroma is astounding. Like all the best mint flavors that I’ve ever enjoyed. A mint truffle, laced with coffee liquer or fresh bouquet of fresh cut mint leaves. All backed with a flash of herbed mint clean chocolate. Flavor continues on this deliciousness, with a fresh burst of Andes mint candies on the fron tend, moving into an acidic fresh roasted Coffee in my mouth, like fresh group drip Italian. Fades into a sugar mint kissed roasted deep chocolate. All of this carried on a swirling sweet clear water, that makes the beer as swillable as it is intricate. Palate is bubbly and fresh, not overly hot with any alcohol. Hops need not apply to this beer, but they may exist. Sugary and bright on the way out. Could not possibly be improved, except for a little more density. Thinness keeps it from excelling. But, overall, an excellent example of a well used Bourbon Barrel. I really spent some time with this beer.
