tap at BJ's in Fort Wayne in May 2017, listed a "Bourbon Barrel Stout" with 8.7% abv and 40 IBUs. Is it this beer or something different? I'm not sure. Near black pour. Small, light tan head. The aroma is of bourbon, roast malt, and maybe some licorice. The sweet, roast malt rich flavor has ample bourbon. It's a little hot. Full bodied. Lingering bourbon taste. Very good. kevinator (2860) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Moderate Whiskey stout. Aromas and flavors of mild bourbon, strong vanilla and chocolate malt. Lighter body than expected. Aggiebob (1386) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Draft at BJ’s in Huntsville. It poured a dark brown with a nice tan head that disipated into a lace ring. Nice roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee and oak flavoring from the bourbon barrels. The alcohol becomes more pronounced as the beer mellows. Very tasty. rougeau13 (3276) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2017
On tap. At the restaurant of course. Very dark with a small tan head. Solid bourbon barrel character, it’s just a little lacking elsewhere. Medium bodied and smooth. Itzjerm (3172) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2017
On tap in Huntsville resteraunt. This must have been a better batch. Than other ratings. Thin head. I don't know what I am missing here. Vanilla oak. Toasted oak. Not a building bitterness. Sweet oak vanilla. Only a bit thinner than I'd want a bit more body but a small complaint. Smells like a nice barrel aged beer.

A very nice bourbons n beer but it is very simplified, but, this honestly is a terrible looking beer. Looks like crappy root beer.. . Mild to medium bourbon, burnt brick, wooden teeth, and sweet tar .. It’s a nice beer, won’t win awards or stop me from punching children but it’s nice phaleslu (10895) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Draft in a flight at BJ’s-Florence. Pours a deep brown color with a small khaki head. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, oak, dark dried fruits, ash, earth, roasted malts - whiskey throughout. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sticky, boozy, roasty mouthfeel. Not the most elegant barrel treatment, but given how weak the base beer is, it’s not bad.
