This is an incredibly intriguing ale is made by aging our Old Heathen Imperial Stout in oak barrels that were used for making fine Kentucky bourbon! The result is an extraordinary, dark, and mysterious stout whose very essence has been enhanced. The aroma is filled with vanilla, cocoa, and roasted coffee beans. This silky-smooth brew has notes of oak, whiskey, roasted barley and vanilla that meld together on the tongue to create an incredible sensation. Heresy is released in February.

Bottle. Pours deep dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, light chocolate, whiskey, oak, faint spice, faint plums, and faint floral notes. Flavor is rich roast and chocolate malt profile, some dark fruit sweetness, light booze, oak, and faint vanilla; dry finish. Medium/full body and medium carbonation.

Pours a dark brown with light brown head fading to a ring leaving decent lacing. Aroma is sweet and rich with bourbon. Taste as it warms is a bit too bitter with coffee. Not the best bourbon barrel stout Iíve had at all.

black with a roasted malt and alcohol aroma; a thick, dark beer with roasted malt flavor and notes of coffee, chocolate, and bourbon; warm alcohol finish; a bit of a medicinal flavor that detracted from it a bit

Bottle: Pours balck with a thick tan head. Vanilla, licorice, sour mash aroma. Taste is tart, chocolate and oaky...vaniila and bourbon. Nice beer...with a slightly odd cherry/medicinal scent in flavour... Different, but good.

OmegaX (1288) - Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from the local ABC. Nose is sweet bourbon and a hint of chocolate. Thatís about it. Nice though. Flavor is aspartame sweetness, cheap bourbon, a touch of roast, some light milk chocolate flavors, and vanilla. Pretty good.

Pours jet black with frothy beige head. Deep aromatics--bourbon, vanilla, oak, hints of licorice. Creamy mouthfeel; decent carbonation. Sweet taste on the front of the tongue--roasted coffee beans, chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, malts--ending on a nice slightly bitter note. A joy to drink.

The beer is deep black. Thick chocolate nose, very intensive. The beer is smooth, roasted chocolate, the oak-wood fits in great and deep. Smooth and intense. The aftertaste is deep chocolate, wood, hints of roast. Great!
