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.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Dark dark brown-black with a thin tan-brown head that doesnt last long... not much in the way of lacing S: Rich roasted coffee, a blast of bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel and general roasted malt scents.. very bold and complex T: Sweet vanilla tip before the rich coffee taste dominates with its chocolate and caramel tones... bourbon finishes off the flavor profile... you know that characteristic oak-spice burn with jack? ... yeah this beer has a bit of that at the end and its lovely... M: Smooth, full bodied, velvety, slight burn at the end O: Delicious. The smoothness really helps this monster go down... the only thing holding this baby back is the flavor complexity... its got a tad too much going on to keep drinking many of these... but thats not a bad thing at all!

This is a standout. Marvelous color in the beer and head. Strong, but not jolting coffee flavor, with lingering mild coffee finish. Palate is extraordinary; velvety and lush. This is a winner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piana niewielka, wymuszana, brzydka opada. Kolor czarny. Aromat drewno wanilia, mleczna czekolada, kawa, kakao. Smak wyraźna beczka, wanilia, gorzka czekolada, nuty palone, praliny, średnia słodycz, lekkie w odczuciu. Alkohol ułożony wyczuwalny w szlachetny sposb. Piwo Bardzo dobre ale patrząc w ranking RB szczerze spodziewałem się więcej.

Nose of alcohol, barrel and vanilla Thick body with aromas of chocolate, coffee and barrel. Finish on alcohol. This one is quite rough, relies heavily on alcohol and barrel, way less gourmand than the Breakfast Stout.

Pours black with a small tan head. Nose shows well-integrated coffee and chocolate, roasted and nutty malt. Very well balanced. Flavours include heavy roast, booze, coffee, cocoa and liquorice. Carbonation seems pretty aggressive, especially for a beer of this nature.

tomekboniek (717) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 19, 2017
Butelka 11,9%. Aromat przede wszystkim orzechowy. Wanilia, kakao, beczka. Jakieś takie ziemiste posmaki. Skoro alkoholu po ogrzaniu. Długie posmaki czekoladowo-ziemisto-bourbonowe. Do długiej degustacji. Zawd i to spory.

Bottle shared on the balcony with Martin, Rachel & Nadders. I brough this fellay back from Edinburgh at Christmas. Its been in the cupboard ever since. A special occasion called for a special beer. I understand why everyone gets so worked about it. A delicious beer in every respect with the key strength being *balance*. Coffee, Chocolate, Bourbon, Vanilla. All in equally restrained measure baring in mind its lofty ABV. Very nice.

KBS, what else is there to say? The balance is crazy by tasting each of the three main components. Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 30

Dark brown with small light brown head. Excellent aroma of whiskey, chocolate, vanilla. Strong but mild bitterness with some sourness and vanilla sweetness and same notes as in the aroma.

Thick black chewy deliciousness. Intensely chocolatey. After two sips from the bottle I realized my foolishness and got it into the snifter it deserved.
