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.

ej (1307) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle. Pours a black body with a medium tan head. Looks good! Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, wood, smoke and coffee. Flavour is light sweet but balanced. The bourbon is not taking up too much "space" which makes the malts, coffee and vanilla notes really shine! Finishes with a bit of warmth, tho the alcohol is nowhere to be found in the flavour, an assertive bitterness and notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Really a superb stout this. Drinks like it was atleast 2-3 % less abv also. Smooth mouthfeel and soft co2 levels.

Kauge (1851) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki, shared with M. ABV 11.9%. BB 29.11.17. Really dark brown with smallish mocha head. Retention good. Coffee and bourbon nose and flavour. Sweetish vanilla and saltier bourbony notes. Really dark roastiness. Coffee rather strong, fresh ground. Alcohol well covered, its got rather modest booziness considering the 11.9%. Pretty surprising light body. Carbonation mellow. Pretty neat stuff!

beton (317) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 26, 2017
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 (1133) - 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.

fantti (988) - FINLAND - MAR 25, 2017
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.

Bottle shared @Pułapka, Gdańsk

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)
