Pours almost a pure black with a dissipating mocha brown head that ends up sticking to my glass. The aroma is of a medium intensity of sweet bourbon, dominating vanilla, oak, molasses, cocoa, and a pleasant tone of malts. In tasting I picked up on everything in the aroma. The bourbon had a descent but pleasant boozy bite. In addition I notice a mild bitterness and I really enjoyed the sweet malty flavor in the finish. Overall this beverage was delightful and well worth a try.

On tap @ GABF. Black pour with a tan head. Bourbon, licorice, and roasted malt aromas. Some ash, oak, and dark fruits. A touch of acidity and dark fruits. Flavor is more bitter than expected. Light sweetness of dark fruit, vanilla, and bourbon. Oak, ash, and roasted malt. Decent licorice character, too.

Skyview Tasting, 2/23/13. Roasted malt and bourbon, but the bourbon is more prominent in the aroma than the flavor. Medium palate. Bourbon is not overwhelming, which is good.

On tap at the ’13 Cincy Beerfest. Dark beer with a thin brown head. Big whiskey and caramel corn nose. This is a thick chewy beer with flavors of molasses, rich dark caramel, toffee, vanilla bean, oak, bourbon and raisin bread. Hints of chocolate and tar. The nose fills the sinuses with alcoholic goodness. Complex beer made better by the barrel.

MrHangover (2146) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2013
Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a pitch black beer with virtually no head on top. Aroma is epic, full on bourbon, oak, molasses and vanilla. Flavour is very sweet, alcohol is well hidden. There is more barrel characters in the flavor then in the aroma. Finish is medium long and sweet as well. Very nice surprise.

Growler at Jackie O’s (from notes). Pours very dark brown/black with a thin beige head. The aroma has dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, bourbon, ash, dark fruits and a hint of smoke. The flavor is roasted malts, dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, ash, earthy hops and a hint of smoke. The dark fruits also are there. Good bitterness at the back with quite a bit of barrel, smooth mouth feel and medium body. Better out of the barrel. Sampled at Cincy beerfest also.

On tap at Winter Warmer Fest 2014
This was one of the main reasons I wanted to come to the festival. It did not disappoint at all. A world class barrel aged imperial stout is robust from first impression to final sip. I would definitely purchase this on draft if it made its way north.

Aroma / Appearance - A creamy inky black foundation is murky like motor oil drained from a high mileage car. Mocha head helps trap a profile rich in Woodford Reserve, vanilla, malt, coffee, and dark fruits. Thick and boozy it still manages to keep from being a muddy mess.

Flavor / Palate - Creamy and full bodied waves of flavor coat the tongue like a thick layer of paint. Woodford is offset by trades of vanilla, coffee, anise, raspberries, and cocoa. A masterful balance carries into a bittersweet finish. I could have drunk this all afternoon if not for so many other options to try.
