A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

socaltay (204) - Ventura, California, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Appearance: Pours an oily, thick, pitch black color that has a mocha colored head that fades away quickly. Aroma: Full of bourbon notes that have both dark chocolate and coffee notes that compliment the barrel. The taste is very similar to the aroma only more vanilla notes come to the surface. Amazing beer

CanCrusher (1099) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - SEP 22, 2017
Bottle 0,355L. Deep dark brown color with thin, frothy, brown head. Amazing aroma of dark chocolate, coffee mixed with bourbon, gentle touch of vanilla and caramel. Taste starts light sweet with chocolate, than turns to light to medium bitter finish with bourbon and vanilla at the aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. Top shit beer!

Veldig god øl, mørk og kraftig smak av kaffe og karamell, aromaen på denne er vel en av de beste jeg har kjent... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barwa czarna, piana dość obfita, beżowa. W aromacie kawa, czekolada, wanilia, beczka, delikatnie alkoholowo. W smaku niezbyt gęsto (troche szkoda), ale mega intensywnie, czekolada, jest beczka, kawowa goryczka, alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewający. Klasa.

Thick. Syrupy. Low carbonation. chocolate walnut brownie notes. Strong bourbon finish. One of the best bourbon barrels I've had. I let it get to room temperature as founders suggested ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sam_uk93 (23) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2017
Pours jet black, a small dark tan head. Aroma is a smokey, chocolate dark sweetness. Taste is sweet upfront, leading to a wonderful deep, smokey chocolate bitterness, a hint of alcohol warmth, more chocolate milk sweetness, plum, hint of sweet ripe nectarine, dark wood. Medium to low carbonation. Lovely velvety thick full bodied. Unbelievable!

Skinnyviking (9644) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2017
Bottle. High creamy lasting light brown body. Pitch black body Smooth and creamy roasted malt coffee caramel liquorice aroma and flavor, fair amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation, long finish.

pjotrapostou (274) - POLAND - SEP 18, 2017
Bardzo intensywnie czekoladowe, dość słodkie, do tego sporo wanilii i beczkowy, drewniany posmak, w kontrze lekka kawowa goryczka. Nie za gęste, ale wystarczająco dużo ciała. Alkohol lekko grzejących, szlachetny, dobrze wkomponowany. Deserowe, ale z ciekawym, beczkowym posmakiem. Bardzo dobre.

Derbeth (995) - Kraków, POLAND - SEP 16, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown colour, almost black, small head. Aroma is coffee, bourbon, vanilla, some alcohol. A bit too few body for an imperial stout. I don't like it very much - too much coffee for me.

pinkzambia (2051) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle: Dark brown with a tan ring head. Coffee with sugar in the aroma. Chocolate malt in the flavor. Thick and syrupy.

moldovan9807 (446) - Oradea, ROMANIA - SEP 12, 2017
Aroma of coffee, vanilla, chocolate, molasses, mousse au chocolat. Palate is chocolate, coffee, leather, toffee. Oily mouthfeel. Bitter chocolate finish, very smooth and complex.
