Linnet (1520) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2016
Much as the same as the ordinary Goliat, coffee, molassess, licorice, tar and alcohol, enveloped in a rather subdued but a bit boozy bourbon barrel note.

phaleslu (8969) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2016
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Pours an opaque deep brown color with a small beige ring for a head that laces the glass. Pretty sweet, with notes of vanilla, caramel, cocoa, oak, brown sugar, fudge - the underlying roasted and dark malts provide minimal backbone for the barrel and sweetness to take over. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Good, but slightly thin and flat, so the body doesn’t enhance the experience like it could.

Black poor, brown slowly settling, lacing foam head. Coffee aroma w/ clear bourbon tones. Great taste, taking small sipps. Coffee, ligh bitter, bourbon, long lasting aftertaste. At same time not too strong. (Velp 201603)

Fles gekocht via Etre Gourmet, uitgeschonken in een To Ĝl teku glas. Gitzwart van kleur, olieachtig met een medium hoge lichtbruine schuimkraag. Ook deze BA versie heeft uiteraard veel aroma’s van koffie, maar wel subtieler dan bij de reguliere Goliat. Vers gebrande koffiebonen, donkere chocolade, eikenhout, vanille en licht rokerige bourbon whisky. Mooi in balans qua smaak, de bourbon vaten hebben de extreme koffie aroma’s en smaken verzacht, en het smaakpallet dieper en complexer gemaakt. Het zuurtje is verdwenen en heeft plaatsgemaakt voor verwarmende bourbon tonen met aardse accenten. Het mondgevoel en textuur hadden nog meer olieachtiger en stroperiger mogen zijn, is iets waterig nog. Maar verder absoluut een uitmuntende BA Stout van To Ĝl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Café, mucho café y madera. Alcohol bien integrado. Me gustaría que fuese un poco más encorpada pero está muy bien hecha. Ligero chocolate en el retrogusto.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Pours dark brown to black in color with a minimal beige head. The aroma is roasted malts, coffee (more mild than the base), bourbon, dark fruits with chocolate and lightly smoky notes. The flavor has everything that the nose has, but it is better. The chocolate and dark fruit are bigger than the base and accompany the bourbon and wood nicely, coffee, molasses. Medium bitterness to the finish, medium plus body. This one got better with each taste.

Review from memory. I sampled this shortly after the regular version, which is one of my favourite coffee stouts. As expected, the coffee notes are toned down by the barrel ageing, and there are some bourbon notes present, unfortunately not improving on the base beer. Still, an excellent stout.
