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 armes de bourbon, mais non strident. Lgrement sucre avec de dlicieuses notes de bourbon, de vanille et de boise. Touche de chocolat-caf. Trs bien balance. Corps moyen, mais drinkability parfaite. Texture soyeuse et finale lgrement alcoolis. Le bourbon est tres bien utilis et brille par sa prsense, mais laisse toutefois de la place aux autres saveurs.

Butelka 2015. Aromat przykryty przez kawę, taką świeżo mieloną, intensywna. W tle kakao, czekolada, wanilia. W smaku zaś już lekko utlenione. Intensywna beczka, wanilia, bourbon, czekolada. Goryczka średnia, podbita palonymi słodami. Aksamitne, niskie wysycenie, wręcz oleiste ciało. Z pewnością dorwnuje swojej legendzie.

sudomorph (1131) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2017
2017 LCBO bottle. Pours black with a half finger of mocha head that thins to a bubbly film. Aroma has big notes of coffee, roasted malts, bourbon barrel, slight nuttiness, mild caramel and chocolate, and hints of dark fruits. Taste is huge. Big and roasty with bourbon barrel, coffee, caramel, toffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits, and just enough hops to balance out the sweetness. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. A medium syrup in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall big, bold, and unapologetic. Lots of coffee with smooth whiskey barrels mixes with caramel, chocolate, and dark fruits.

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana ja hyvin paksuna, noin sormen paksuisella hyvin tummalla vaahdolla. Tuoksussa vahvimpana on, kuten pelksinkin, hyvin runasa kahvisuus. Tt tukemassa on maitosuklaisuus ja puinen tynnyriaromi, joten pelkksi kahviksi tm ei onneksi j. Hieman on mys vanilijaa ja makeaa vaahtokarkkimaisuutta, sekin ehk vanilijasta. Maku on edelleen vahvan kahvinen, mutta viskisyys on lhes yht vahvaa. Hiven on mys suklaisuutta sek puumaisuutta, varmaankin tynnyrist. Mys lakritsia lytyy, hieman ylltten mukaan ja jlkimaussa on vanilijaista makeutta. Suutuntuma on melko alkoholinen, hykkvn humaloitu ja eptasapainoisen oloinen. En ymmrr alkuunkaan tmn saamaa hype, aivan liian kahvinen ja alkoholinen omaan makuuni. Tynnyrinti tuntuu, muttei pelasta. Kypsyttely tekisi varmasti hyv, ainakin itseni kannalta.

Coffee took over the aroma. I wish the aroma was more complex. A bit sweet taste, coffee and cocoa, mild oat finish. Would love move body

portwood (255) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2017
2016 @ 11.9%. Roasty, earthy, coffee, bitter chocolate, tobacco. Strong, bittersweet, powdery, prickly carbonation. Burnt caramel, bitter chocolate, stale coffee, tarry tobacco, powdery dry. Very complex but something about the (stale) coffee smell/taste keeps it from going much over 4pts (bottle bb 12/20/17)

EerieDrinks (105) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2017
1 finger light tan head. Pitch black beer. Aroma is mostly sweet vanilla and coffee with a lovely boozy kick, but man.. Nothing else is needed. Could smell this all day. Taste follows the aroma with a pleasant whiskey afterburn. So simple yet so delicious. A bit short aftertaste though, which drags it down a point. A strong 7. Mouthfeel is medium thick and slightly oily. Quite dry at the back, probably from the barrel aging. Overall: Very nice Imp. stout. Kinda understand the hype but nowadays, this baby has a lot of competitors in the scene and it isnt a 10/10 with todays standards. Still, it holds its own and this, along with Breakfast Stout and Imp. Stout by Founders should all be Stouts that one should always have at home.
