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.

You really get the bourbon aroma with caramel, marshmallow, spices, a tiny bit of nuts and a ton of booze. Its a very intense drop with tons of sweet malts and loads of alcohol to warm you on a cold winters night. My only criticism is that its a fraction overdone IMHO.

12 oz bottle, 2017 vintage. Pours a dark brown/black with a 1/2 finger mocha head. Aroma is cherry, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, bourbon. Taste is a big bitter coffee throughout, with minimal chocolate, vanilla, barrel on the backend. Mouthfeel is medium-medium plus. Overall, this is a great stout, but isnt as good as previous years. The bitter coffee dominates the taste, and the barrel is minimal. It is very good, but not as good as other big coffee stouts...Epics Big Bad Baptist and Prairie Coffee Noir are superior in my opinion.

Nearly black with creamy dark brown head. Looks get roast chocolate and oak barrel aroma. Sweet boozy cocoa with oaky roasty with a boozy whiskey vanilla finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This tastes like coffee flavored sugar syrup that burns. Its actually better than most BA stouts! Not cardboardy or soy saucy and barely anything wrong with it aside from burning your mouth and being too sweet. People dont like this because its too easy to find but I think its pretty good.

matbli (354) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle, 2016 release, pours almost pitch black with beige, fast falling head. Aroma is awsome with a lot of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oak, red fruits, marzipan and figs. In taste well balanced with medium sweetness and some roasty bitterness. Very coffeish with a lot of dark chocolate flavours. Full bodied but extremly easy drinkable. Great beer.

Kita (2093) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 29, 2017
Bottle, 0.355l, shared with Leo. Pours pitch black color with thin creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, nuts and oak. Taste starts moderate sweet and rich roasted malt, follows by chocolate, vanilla, wood and bourbon, mouthfeel is warming, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, thick creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Superbly drinkable for such high ABV...
