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.

jeremyh70 (1083) - Missouri, USA - APR 11, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2015 2015: Appearance is the same as previous years. Milk chocolate hits the nose first in the aroma followed by bourbon, cherry, vanilla and hints of wood. The taste follows the same path as the nose with chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and a bit of cherry. The coffee presents itself much more in the taste with a smooth flavor. Also get some drying wood flavor. Some lingering coffee and roast in the aftertaste. Very nice creamy mouthfeel. Very well made with expertly blended flavors. 2014: Pours black with ruby highlights, a finger of dark khaki head that dissipates to an attractive foam with nice lacing. The bourbon comes through in the aroma and so does the oak from the barrels. Also some sweet chocolate and only a faint hint of coffee. The taste is at first sweet with cocoa and a nice vanilla, then the bourbon flavor appears along with a pleasant touch of alcohol warmth. You then get a chocolate covered coffee bean flavor and only a touch of bitterness. Finishes with more chocolate and a bit of oak woodiness. Mouthfeel is creamy and somewhat sticky with a medium/full body. Carbonation is medium with small bubbles. Alcohol legs appear in lacing. Exceptionally well integrated flavors that compliment each other and never overpower one another. A sipper that is highly enjoyable. ---Jeremy H

Satyroneto (340) - BRAZIL - JAN 8, 2017
Produzida em 2016, Verso 12,4% ABV. Cor negra com espuma marrom (de capuccino) de mdia formao e persistncia de uma fina camada com excelente lacing. Aroma muito intenso de chocolate ao leite, alm de torrados (caf e cinzas), madeira e leve lcool. Sabor inicial com doce do chocolate ao leite e torrado de caf, evoluindo para um meio amadeirado e alcolico. Final com toque de bourbon, evidenciando o dulor da baunilha e o amadeirado. Retrogosto equilibrado entre a madeira e o doce da baunilha do bourbon, ficando mais amadeirado e alcolico (aquecendo a boca) com a elevao da temperatura. Corpo sedoso e licoroso com baixa carbonatao. Perfeitamente harmonizado com panetone de doce-de-leite com especiarias e coberto com chocolate.

hrabren (1056) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 31, 2016
0.33 l bottle bought by Marin & Toni at Edinburgh. Shared with Vinja 666 and Goran. Huge thanks guys for bringing this and Vinja 666 for sharing! Hoppy birthday! Completely black, brown small lasting head. Highly aromatic, ground pepper, very spicy, very heavy on the barrel, alcohol. Dry, alcoholic, aromatic. Full body, silky texture, extremely aromatic finish. I understand why people go mad about this one.
