UPDATED: MAR 15, 2009 Rating #300. On tap @ Capones. Pours a dark black with a small tan head. Soggy wood cask, whisky aroma, alcohol is definitely present. Well carbonated, some cola, vanila extracts, chocolate, with a sweet, dry bourbon finish. Very good. JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Darker brown with a nice chocolate/oak/vanilla aroma. Flavor is much smoother, oaky, and full bodied than the standard version. Not the greatest, but definitely an improvement. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2009
handbottle thanks to bman1113vr. deep chocolate almost black pour with a cream head. nose is yeasty with wood, roasted malts, vanilla and chocolate. good thickness with a roasty flavor that finishes quite nice with the wood and vanilla. Jblauvs (1358) - Chester, Vermont, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Black pour with tan head. Aroma is heavy bourbon and some chocolate, vanilla bean. Palate is relatively thick, thinning out a bit on the finish. Flavor is dominated by barrel notes and bourbon. Chocolate, and some nuttiness come through but the delicate spiciness of the belgian stout does not translate well in the bourbon barreled version, still pretty nice.

Sampled at American Craft Beer Fest 2010. Pours black with a beige head. Thick texture, sort of oily. Strong flavors of chocolate and coffee with some hoppy undertones. A great beer Travlr (24667) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Very dark brownish black, tan head. Aroma of Jack Daniels. Taste is roasted coffee, chocolate, lots of bourbon. Nice. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Tasted on draft at FoBAB 2010. Pours nearly black amber with a massive off-white head that leaves rocky lace. The nose is super-roasted malt with espresso and bitter dark chocolate. The flavor is vanilla oak, bourbon, roasted malt, espresso, and dark chocolate. The body is full with average carbonation and a long roasted espresso and whiskey finish.

Deep black pour. The aroma is quite herbal with a lot of vanilla/caramel bourbon aroma. Intensely bourbony behind some sweet black licorice, rich sweet malt and more bourbony character as well. All of the yeast contribution to this brew seems to have been beaten out of it. Rich cocoa and bourbon. I like it actually - but it’s definitely unsubtle. yespr (45425) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2011
From tap at Sunset Grill. Pours dark brown to almost black with a small, tan and creamy head. Aroma is dark roasted malty and smooth bourbon. Bitter, dark roasted and fruity bourbon flavoured. Lingering dark roasted malty and slight bourbon flavoured. Slight bitter and dry roasted malt finish.
