3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7oz. bottle. Aroma of darkly roasted malt, wood, bourbon, prune, earthiness, black cherry, maple sugar and licorice, some background hints of perfume here and there. Brown-black in color with a fine, sparse, lasting, tan head, some very fine lacing present as well. Flavor profile is roasty, earthy, faintly sweet and smoky with notes of char, burnt sugar, vanilla, old wood, faint bourbon, chocolate and some dried fruit tones on the finish. Smooth, full, and lightly tannic mouthfeel, body is also fairly full. Rather intriguing. Thanks to Brad for the bottle!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks Allen! Highly carbed. Beautiful appearance: brown with sticky lace everywhere.
Smells like carb, some barrel, meh. Roasty to an extent, smooth on the palate, hints of booze as it goes down, yet lacks refinement. I remain unimpressed with Stillwater.

Big thanks to Simon for this one! Aroma of bourbon barrel fills the room as I pour. Incredible aroma really, smoky malt, wood and burnt sugar. Pours black with a short tan head that sticks around. Taste is very smooth with a creamy mouthfeel. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, bourbon, lots of barrel in this one. Really a great beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a deep brown/black appearance with little head. Somewhat boozy whiskey, a bit spicy, caramel, somewhat dark fruity, fig aroma. Toffee, deep dark chocolate, light char, vanilla, a bit woody, plum, fig flavor. I enjoyed the flavor quite a bit more than the aroma.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, big thanks to Kerry for the pour! Thick black pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of nice whiskey, vanilla, dark chocolate, some slight dark fruits in there, hints of molasses, touch of slight belgian esters as well, touch of metallic note in there as well but not bad. Taste is a mix of sweet dark fruits, molasses, hints of anise, nice whiskey come in with roast, slight coffee, dark chocolate notes, hints of caramel, molasses, finishing with hints of vanilla. Pretty nice.
