Growler sample from shigadeyo. Poured a black color with a moderate creamy brown head that diminished slowly and produced sticky legs and fair lacing. Good roasted malt, licorice and woody bourbon aroma. Full body with a smooth texture. Complex sweet stout flavor with a smooth bourbon woody finish. Very well balanced complex barrel stout. This is a standout beer. kermis (14957) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2013
UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 Bottle shared thanks to trade with Kraddel. Pours black with a ring brown head. Aroma of massive bourbon, vanilla, toffee, fudge, milk chocolate, malt, oak, molasses. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light moderate bitter. Creamy and perfectly balanced, intense yet mellow, this is incredible. Full bodied with very soft carbonation.

Sample at the Bell’s tasting at Brews Cafe on 3/6/08: This beer pours a matte black color with a medium thin light brown head with decent retention. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee liqueur, bourbon and toasted malt. Rich, chewy body with loads of roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate flavor, as well as bourbon and plum. The finish is roasty and sweet at first with mild alcohol and coffee in the aftertaste. Very enjoyable, and a close second to the Bourbon Barrel Java Stout at this event.
