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.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 2012 bottling. Fantastic stuff. Nice warm bourbon aroma. Great balance of bourbon, coffee and chocolate. Not as heavy on the bourbon as some of the others, but this does have some age on it. The coffee held up remarkably well, i thought that would fade out over time.

Re rate with 13 bottle. For some reason, this years batch didnt impress. A little thin, bourbon was a bit light. I guess when I had it the first time I was a bit new to the BA stout scene, and now Ive had a lot that impress me more.

14 another year and Im even less impressed. Thin and weak. If this were a shelf 6 pack Id put it next to black butte porter. Not worth the hype or price.

Half a year ago I drunk Vintage 2014 from a bottle, now I had opportunity to drunk on tap; this time vintage 2015: Pours black oily color with big creamy long lasting light brown head, which transforms itself to a ring like by espresso coffee. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: big coffee note, dark chocolate, vanilla, leather, oak, dark fruits, dried fruits, bourbon, oak, vanillin. Flavor: double espresso coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits, especially plums, vanilla, molasses, hint of licorice, intense roasted coffee bitterness-astringency, oak- vanilla - tannins, bourbon...finish is dry, thick. Body is full, texture is creamy, super smooth, carbonation is low. World-class!

Draft to taster at Cappys pour opaque black with thick mocha head. Nose light barrel, molasses, light chocolate,and coffee. Taste dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, sweet malt, red fruit and light vanilla. Very light bourbon mid to late. Certainly a nice example.

Satyroneto (340) - BRAZIL - JAN 8, 2017
Produzida em 2016, Verso 12,4% ABV. Cor negra com espuma marrom (de capuccino) de mdia formao e persistncia de uma fina camada com excelente lacing. Aroma muito intenso de chocolate ao leite, alm de torrados (caf e cinzas), madeira e leve lcool. Sabor inicial com doce do chocolate ao leite e torrado de caf, evoluindo para um meio amadeirado e alcolico. Final com toque de bourbon, evidenciando o dulor da baunilha e o amadeirado. Retrogosto equilibrado entre a madeira e o doce da baunilha do bourbon, ficando mais amadeirado e alcolico (aquecendo a boca) com a elevao da temperatura. Corpo sedoso e licoroso com baixa carbonatao. Perfeitamente harmonizado com panetone de doce-de-leite com especiarias e coberto com chocolate.
