All your favorite vices in just one pint...beer, coffee, and genuine Tennessee whiskey. A strong coffee oatmeal Imperial Stout was aged for six months in a Jack Daniel's barrel for a complex concoction that will leave your taste buds wide-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Growler thanks to jbruner. Nose is strong coffee with a light boozy note. Not much vanilla. Pour was pretty flat. Taste is initially coffee then some booze. Not much wood character. Mouthfeel seems a bit thin. Overall good but just seems a bit lacking.

Growler share thanks to Homer321. Huge smooth coffee aroma, sweet roast, light booziness, milk and dark chocolate notes. Dark black pour, thick, minimal brown head. Big coffee flavor too, roasty, coffee beans, lots of chocolate character. Decent amount of booziness. Oaky and hints of vanilla. Alcohol heat. Nice big coffee bean flavor with some sweetness makes for a nice balance. Yumm.

I had this one a very long time ago, but I just found my notes for it. I had this one on tap at Proof Brewing Company with the owner of Terrapin. Pours a dark brown to almost black with a brown head. Aroma is strong whiskey and taste is similar. Strong whiskey taste and warmth from the alcohol. Incredibly enjoyable.

This poured a mury darker brown color with a small tan head. Aroma wasof coffee, whiskey and tart cherries. Flavor was a bit astringent, and tart from the cherries, some green coffee flavors, light roast and chocolate. Reminded me a bit of duck rabbit the end of reason, but with less tartness and more roast.

Tastes more like a wine than a beer. You can taste the alcohol that the beer is aged in. No carbonation at all.

ExpendableHero (854) - Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2011
On tap at Cervezas in Miami, FL. Listed at 8.1% ABV on the menu. Black beer, with a frothy, brown head. Strong aromas of whiskey/bourbon mixed with chocolate. Tastes of dark chocolate, dark coffee, hints of vanilla, and a very noticeable, boozy touch of whiskey that warms. Semi-sweet chocolate aftertaste. Very boozy finish/ Strong, heavy beer.

I was lucky enough to score about a pint of this overall. Good ol’ WnB with some serious whiskey aging in this glass. Dark, roasty huge whiskey nose and outstanding flavor.

Nearly black pour. Brown head. Boozy aroma with chocolate and roast. Tons of JD in the flavor! Lots of roast and dark chocolate too.

Tastes like a bottle of Jack was straight up pored into the barrel. Black pour with an aroma of chocolate and booze.

scotchzi (302) - Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2011
This glorious beer pours a dark thick black with a huge dark tan head. Smell is very sweet lots of vanilla with some roast. Taste is nothing like wake and bake. Only a little bit of coffee mostly sweet. Very rich like butter toasted vanilla beans sprinkled with dry coffee grounds.
