COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

FoamForever20 (810) - STAVANGER, NORWAY - APR 10, 2021
UPDATED: APR 10, 2021 Black, small tan head. Earth and dried fruits, red fruits. Vanilla, tobacco, leather. Very tasty, salty licorice aftertaste, balanced and very drinkable for a strong beer. A real pickup breakfast.

chinhaez (38) - Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2021
UPDATED: APR 2, 2021 12 oz bottle. Blackish pour, into a bowl glass, with a medium sized tan head that has good retention. The aroma is strong and features vanilla, whiskey, anise and some red fruits. The taste is well balanced with vanilla, booze and roasted malts in good proportion. The mouthfeel is full and smooth and the carbonation soft. Long and glorious finish. Overall: decent

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2021 2018 version sampled here - 12 oz squirrelled away- oily blackness. Still tasted like a good stout. Barrel aging showed up as vanilla on back end. Lovely.

Nik925 (891) - California, USA - FEB 22, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2021 The creaminess is crazy. Beautiful layers that build into the punchy barrel flavor. Wonderfully made malt. Everything in nice balance. The bourbon is almost over the top, but the high abv manages to blend in with it. Fantastic.

LagerGuide122 (659) - - FEB 14, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2021 355ml bottle brewed in Michigan at 12.2% (2019 vintage). Black with a neat tawny head, decent duration. Caramel and vanilla with some lurking coffee and chocolate fudge succulence in the aroma. Lowish carbonation, robust texture. Bitter finish with light alcohol. Sweet chocolate and coffee ground developing more complexity, then bourbon wood kicks in in the aftertaste. Thoroughly souped-up version of their Breakfast Stout, staying close to it in terms of flavour profile, perhaps a little sweeter all-in-all despite the increased bitterness. Complex, rich, balanced - but perhaps a little overrated. Still, it deserves credit for popularising the style, and definitely delivers on it.
