Pours a rich burnt umber color with a two finger light khaki foam. The nose is soft with sweet chocolate and bourbon soaked tootsie roll, spicy vanilla bean and licorice. The palate follows... wow Im digging this lots of cola nut, round full soft mouthfeel, bourbon bite is apparent but dialed in with the roasted chocolate malt and traces of licorice, herbal spice and vanilla. Really loving this !

Reddish highlights dark beer. Rich nose sweet with pecans. More of the same in the palate sweet sticky good. A bit of booze at the end. At the blue tusk.

The aroma of sweet and biscuit is enveloped by the bourbon barrels. The dark thick stout color sports a big bold head. The stout flavor is slightyly bitter and bites at the end with an ABV of 9.5.

Like most bourbon barrel aged beers, the bourbon is too strong here. The aroma is bourbon, chocolate, some roast. The appearance is a deep balck, almost no head. The flavor is bourbon, chocolate, molasses. The finish has some chocolate sweetness, but is mainly bourbon. Very good beer. Again, the bourbon sort of overwhelms everything else.

Black pour tan head creamy with light lacing .... aroma of bourbon and roasted malts and coffee ..... very smooth and silky with a light fruity and roasted malt and coffee taste ... a bitter warming alcohol bourbon finish .... not a heavy brew kind of thin and easy drinking as it warms more of the bourbon flavor comes in ... not bad but i wasnt blown away

Growler from The Growler Store. Pours black with a thick creamy head that hangs around for forever. Dry roasted grain aroma with a nicely balanced bourbon barrel compliment. Smooth roasted grain, bourbon, vanilla and oak in the taste with a dark roasted grain bite on the end. Well balanced and tasty brew.

NikkTwist (3046) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2013 Draft at Eulogy. Start of a barrel. Opaque brown pour in a tulip glass. Nice foamy tan head that left some lace. Slightly medicinal chocolate liquor. Definite bourbon barrel notes. Tootsie Rolls. Not much aroma once the head dies down. Silky palate. Smooth finish. High ABV is well hidden. Nice, but lacks complexity. Update: Having it on draft again during an Allagash event at Moriartys. Similar looking, though much less lace. Started too cold but warmed up to some deeper complex flavors.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2010
EBF 2010 Session One: Deep brown with a tan film of head. The aroma has mocha, wood, peat, toasted dry oak and some marshmallow character. The flavor is oaky with notes of cocoa, mild coffee, and dry bourbon meshes with a chocolaty presence. Very cohesive flavors and picked up nice dry woody tannins from the barrel. Subtle, complex and tasty.

From the tap poured a black color with a good amount of head. Sweet toasted malty flavor with a lingering finish.
