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.

Nose is dark chocolate, coffee and some molasses sweetness. Taste is wonderful with nice hints of cocoa, coffee and bourbon booze. Pour is black as night and thick as oil. Mouthfeel is thick and yummy. Overall still awesome and I loooove this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark black body with a coffee/tan colored head. Smells of dark chocolate, coffee, and notes of oats. Tastes extremely rich and of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and oats. A very thick and full mouthfeel.

Pours a black motor oil (almost) with a very thick head that may never go down. Big aromas of whiskey upfront, wood/oak, big caramel, vanilla, roasted malts, and no alcohol noticed. Flavors of light whiskey(more subdued in flavors), wood/oak, vanilla, medium alcohol only through the nose, and caramel. Very thick feel and up top on the thickness of all beers tried. Medium bitter light to medium sweet and very complex! Aromas are so big there is so much going on behind all the whiskey! I liked how you can notice a medium vanilla note in the middle of the flavors. The whiskey flavors are the only thing that turned me off slightly. Really an amazing stout that deserves its high acclaim to fame. My 700th beer rated.

Cette robe noire et cette tête brune me plaisent du premier coup d’oeil. À mesure que le liquide s’évapore, je m’étonne de voir cette jolie dentelle. Mon nez qui plonge rapidement dans cette aventure ne veut plus en sortir. Que dire de ce bouquet appétissant de café noir, de biscuits au chocolat, de vanille et de malts rôtis qui s’enrobent d’un délicat mais profond parfum de chêne imbibé de bourbon. Force est d’admettre après une réflexion d’une demi-seconde que je suis ici devant quelque chose qui appartient aux ligues majeures. Une fois ce sympathique choc passé, mes lèvres se précipitent sur la paroi du verre. Impossible de ne pas être emballé devant ces saveurs intenses de grains de café torréfiées, de chocolat au lait et de cacao pur qui se permettent d’être légèrement réchauffées par cette présence feutrée d’un bourbon qui transporte douceur et notes boisées. En bouche, une structure corporelle extrêmement intelligente: j’aime cette texture soyeuse et ces bulles qui ne sont jamais comprimées par une excessive lourdeur. La finale est fantastique et savoureuse, chocolatée, jamais sucrée ni dominée par l’alcool. Voilà une bière vraiment impressionnante qui, à défaut d’être un exemple de complexité, est l’archétype même de l’harmonie.

Bottle. Medium bourbon barrel flavor in the initial taste. A little sweetness that evolves into a chocolate roasted aftertaste. Excellent overall.

The appearance of this beer fuses a black color and a tan head that dissipates quickly to leave a ring on top of the liquid, and the aroma is complex with notes of bourbon, coffee, roasted malts, and a hint of dark chocolate. The palate is more bold than the taste with its full body, long chocolatey finish, oily texture, and soft carbonation, but the taste is still an experience of a mild umami, mild sweetness, and a mild bitterness.
