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.

Bourbon aroma shines through, if you aren’t a bourbon fan this may be offsetting. Great beer overall.

Good, but not my favorite in this style. Pours almost black with a foamy beige head. Smell of chocolate and bourbon. Taste has a little bourbon, chocolate vanilla with a thick body with small amount of carbonation. Good but prefer other barrel aged stouts like plead the 5th.

Big black pour with a thick tan head. Caramel, malt and roast. Def get the coffee aroma here. Medium body, decent amount of carbonation. Slight bourbon and slight vanilla flavors present along with the caramel and coffee flavors. Dark chocolate flavors linger on your palate. Tasty beer

Coffee punch to the face, in a good way. Sweet backbone shows itself throughout. Beautiful color, used motor oil. Fantastic.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 bottle. Black and viscous with dense mocha head. Wonderful aroma, fudge, vanilla, marshmallow, and bourbon. Taste is chocolate, oak, fudge, roasted malts, and a touch of bourbon. What makes this beer great to me is how well the barrel treatment integrates with the base beer, it manages to add complexity without overpowering. Extremely well balanced. Beautiful stuff.

Lawdamercy, where to even begin? I had this as a 10oz draft at the Map Room in Chicago. Superb- scotch, cocoa, malt, and warming alcohol finish.

Bouteille 12 fl oz. Brune foncée opaque. Nez de café, chocolat et bourbon. Bouche généreuse qui tapisse les papilles: chocolat noir, une trace de vanille, café et bourbon. Un peu de chaleur en fin de bouche, mais pas assez pour être réellement dérangeante. Très longue en bouche, un peu asséchante et tannique à la toute fin. Excellente.

Tastes of coffee, a hint of vanilla, some chocolate milk, all with bourbon notes throughout. Awesome
