COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From Greg Hall:
"BCS rare, I’m excited. Brewed in 2008, aged for 24 months in 23 year old Pappy Van Winkle Barrels. These are the very best smelling barrels I’ve come across in 18 years of barrel aging beer. Barrels were originally filled with spirit in 1985. We have 50 bourbon barrels aging, it will be a one time bottling, it will not be repeated."

Tide (8362) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2019

Bitter finish with roasted malts, nuts, coffee, chocolate, licorice, dried fruits, dark fruits and oak. Excellent imperial stout, maybe a bit past its prime.

tiong (13228) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2019 650ml bottle. Some oxidation and cellar notes. Roasty, earthy and woody with some sweet syrup, molasses, ripe dark fruits, bourbon, rye, malts and hints of licorice. Perhaps has seen its best days already, but still really good.

Pours black with dark brown head. Lot of bourbon on aroma with boozy notes mixed with roasted malts. Thick and chewy mouthfeel. Flavors of caramel, molasses, cocoa, brown sugar, bourbon. Still a little boozy taste on finish but excellent overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. A couple sample bottle pours at ChurchKey and Meridian Pint during Goose Island's Migration Week in September 2013. Black with tan ring of head. Aromas of subdued whiskey, dark chocolate, oak. Tastes of whiskey, dark chocolate, light oak a little dark fruit, subtle dark fruit. Full body with a dry finish. Great stuff.

Nocturne (3062) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2017
650ml bottle. Dark black. Forms a good brown head. Aroma of tar and velvety chocolate fudge. Taste along similar lines with some faint dark fruit. This has held up really well. I’m not sure it has improved over the years but it doesn’t feel oxidised or deteriorated in any way.

4.3

arone12 (967) - Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2017
I have had this beer for a long time and figured the day of labors is good enough of a time to crack it open. Smells strongly of bourbon when the bottle is opened. Beer is thick and syrupy on the pour liked used motor oil. Beer is smooth and creamy with strong notes of chocolate and bourbon. DELICIOUS!
