Complexity. Aged for three months in Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head.

Sampled on tap at the Rogue Ale house in San Francisco. A really excellent stout. Smooth and creamy. Really well roasted and a refreshing brew.

22 oz bomber pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, oak and bourbon. Nice balance on the bourbon, would by it again.

pjotrapostou (77) - POLAND - FEB 12, 2017
W aromacie głwnie drewno i beczka, lekka waniliowa bourbonowa nuta. W smaku jest dość podobnie - sporo mokrego drewna, poza tym nieco kwaśne i delikatnie palone. Dosyć wodniste, wysycenie trochę za duże, przez co struktura nie jest zbyt gładka, mogłoby być lepiej. Oglnie dobry, z wyraźną beczką.

Pours an opaque dark as night black. Smells of dark chocolate and traces of espresso. Tastes of rich sweetness with woodsy overtones. Syrup-like body with a great mouth coating finish. I split a bomber with a friend and it was the perfect amount without going over. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Deep brown with a huge light brown head. Toffee, light whiskey, wet oak, tobacco and stone aromas. Has a dry woody whisky flavor that seems boozier than it really is. Has a medium body with a slick feel.

Drank from the bottle, very smooth bourbon barrel Stout. Strong bourbon aroma, tastes stronger than it is, very good drink!

This is a very interesting barrel aged stout. Aroma is very sour, very bretty. Makes it a rather funky affair. Very complex and interesting though, the Bourbon barrel is really very noticeable, also gives nice vanilla note. Medium body. Flavour is malty, quite sweet, lots of vanilla and bourbon flavours. Almost not sour compared to aroma. Not a very long finish, but a roasty vanilla taste remains. Weird but nice!

Ron (3792) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Bottle shared with Erica and Ben in December. Almost black with light brown head. Quite some bourbon, red berries, light chocolate, chalky, soft spices, vanilla, sweet malts, light roasted malts. Medium sweet, light bitter and sour. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

egajdzis (6276) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2017
Opaque black with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, dark fruits, vanilla, wood, and bourbon. Taste of roast, vanilla, dark fruits, wood, and light bourbon in the finish.

scarletfire65 (1382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle at home with Caressa, Apollo, and the wife. Creamy brown head over a nearly black pour. The aroma is vanilla, butterscotch, milk chocolate, light smoke. Light bodied and thin. Smoky malt with faint bourbon notes. Solid, but somehow underwhelming.
