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.

On guest tap at DLD 11, This is defintely the best tasting stout I have had today, I am surprised that this one meets the hype. I definitely like some more of this maybe I will travel down to michigan next release. Anyways about the beer, it tastes like your typical stout up front with the dark roasty malts and chocolate bit of coffeeness to it. It then comes and hits with something that is hard to describe, its more of a fruity mix with a bit of wood like flavour. Recommend this one

On tap at Dark Lord Day. Dark black with no head. Quite different than other stouts. Had a unique sweetness to it. One of the best stouts I have ever had.

Bottle. Pours near black with a beige head. Bourbony and roasty aroma with coffee, vanilla, and chocolate. The flavor has roasted malts and bourbon sweetness, with coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, and vanilla. Awesome stuff.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 An 08 bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours jet black with no head, leaving no lacing. Typical bourbon aged nose with added notes of coffee and vanilla bean. Molasses comes through as it warms. Quite sweet. Starts with roasted coffee and slowly turns to bourbon and oak notes finishing with bitter chocolate and sweet brown sugar. Unbelievably easy drinking for 10%. Nice stuff

Floods in Stroudsburg PA. Bourbon in the aftertaste and sweet chocolate malty tones all over swirling around. Caramel and a hint of maple. The flavors mix well and I loved the dark color which is somewhere between dark chocolate and oil. The oak is here but it melds well with everything else and enhances the flavors versus other barrel beers where the oak kind of protrudes.

POurs deep black with notes of oak and vanilla. Deep notes of caramnel, vanillabean, anddark chocolate sow during the mouthfeel. A long finish that shows the bourbon barrel and bourbon sugars. Outstanding.

Pours dark black with a brown head that disapates quickly. Smells of the bourbon barrels and caramel. The bourbon and Vanilla create a very dellishous combination that is in no way over powered by the coffe. In fact the coffe not very overboard in this beer like many breakfast stouts I have had in the past. The finish is a fantastic taste of Vanilla and bourbon. Great beer for breakfast or dessert.
