COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

OliverG (276) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 22, 2012
22/10/12 Bouteille 341ml: Noire, avec beau collet de mousse blanc. Sublimes arômes de bourbon, mais non strident. Légèrement sucrée avec de délicieuses notes de bourbon, de vanille et de boisée. Touche de chocolat-café. Très bien balancée. Corps moyen, mais drinkability parfaite. Texture soyeuse et finale légèrement alcoolisé. Le bourbon est tres bien utilisé et brille par sa présense, mais laisse toutefois de la place aux autres saveurs.

Kawa, wanilia, drewno, czekolada, orzechy, rozgrzewający alkohol. Solidna treściwość i trochę przyjemnej słodyczy. Średnie wysycenie, spora palona goryczka. Bardzo intensywne, wyraziste, pyszne.

Tap at Browariat. Aroma: Heavy roast and bitter chocolate, vanilla, syrupy, bourbon, very intensive. Appearance: Black body with a great deep creamy head. Taste: On one side sweet and full in body, on the other side bitter, roasted and aggressive, nice. Palate: Semi-dry finish, high body, low carbonation.

Estebanik (1313) - Lublin, POLAND - DEC 12, 2017
Piana średnio wysoka, w jasnym odcieniu beżu, dość gęsto zdobi szkło. W aromacie przede wszystkim beczka, czyli marcepan, orzechy, wanilia, trochę w syrop klonowy, czekolada jest zepchnięta nieco w tło. Przyjemny aromat. Niestety baza trochę nie udźwignęła beczki. Ciała nie ma tu za wiele, choć słodyczy nie brakuje. Nasycenie niskie. Alkohol na finiszu jest wyczuwalny, choć szybko zakrywany jest przez ostatnie tchnienie słodyczy. Przyjemne piwo, choć miałem nadzieję na znacznie pełniejszego, mocarnego stouta, nie dominację dodatków.

This was amazing. Mouthcoating complexity with chocolate, burnt notes, whiskey notes, and a subtle sweetness. It is so drinkable, and something I could have chugged easily. I tasted it alongside CBS, which I didn't enjoy as much. My only sadness was the price - paid $6 for a 5 oz pour!!!

Musta, pieni isokuplainen vaahto. Vahva suklainen, kahvinen tuoksu. Maussa tummaa suklaata, makeutta ja kirpeyttä - myös alkoholista.

Where and how: b. 2017 vintage @ home

Aroma heavy dose of chocolate milkshake, bourbon and coffee. Late alcohol notes. Vanilla. Big and bold 8.0/10

Appearance : 3/5

Top: dark with copper cold hue, long lived top, almost fizzy.

Base: dark brown

Palate : full bodied, somewhat creamy, average carbonation, medium plus finish.

Taste: I am one of last big raters to try this. It kept old school craft vibe. Not overly complicated, even simple I would say. Heavy big stout that was very well made aged in barrel. All fairly balanced.
14/20
Other notes I like it a lot but don't love it.
