This was a standout for me from GABF a few years ago and I sought it out in 10 to see if it was still as good as I delivered. Bourbon barrel stout is almost cliched these days but this one is still one of the best in my book. Terrific opaque full bodied plush stout big enough to stand up to the bourbon. Strong bourbon notes without overwhelming or watering down the stout...not something everybody pulls off. This beer is a partnership of the two with neither taking the lead.

Sampled at GABF! Dark mahogany pour with hints of black at its thickest spot. Aroma of smoke, ash, bourbon, cocoa, and bitter coffee. Flavor similar although the bourbon is a bit forward. Medium mouthfeel.

A decent offering, well worth the money and id possibly get it again. Just didnt knock my socks off. i like the plain stout more. this one was just beaten to shit by the bourbon. hot nose, thin body, didnt do the base beer justice.

Draft. Pours near black with a tan head. Sweet bourbony aroma with some lighter roasty notes. The flavor has a better roast/bourbon balance, with some lighter oaky notes, a hint of coffee grounds, and a light hoppy finish. Nice.

Leighton (20596) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. This was a mean beer, man. Oil black pour with a monstrous, dark tan head. Plenty of roasted malts, cocoa and some coffee in the aroma. Hints of booze. Deep flavor, good chocolate and burnt malt character, mostly sweet with some bitter notes creeping in towards the end. Big body, a little chewy, warming, modestly carbonated. Finished relatively sweet with lingering chocolate. Fantastic.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Draught at Blind Tiger. Black with huge milk chocolate head. Have let the brew sit for 10 mins before drinking. Aroma has definitely improved - big sweet roasted molasses malts, subtle but apparent bourbon, sweet/roasted notes really come out as beer warms. Taste has really improved also. Huge sweet roasted malts, prevalent bourbon boozy taste, light burn down throat. Super sticky on tongue and lips. Roasted flavor in finish, bourbon lingers as well. Sweet but not too sweet. Great beer.

Tried at Stones first Oakquinox in April 2010. Pours a dark black with surprisingly big mocha head considering the four-ounce sample. Aroma of very dark roasted malts and ash. Flavor of dirty dark roasted malts and rich and earthy coffee. Very smooth with some great carbonation. Next to Pizza Ports Farley, this was the best of the day. (27, 296)

11th October 2008. GABF. Smooth bourbon in this smooth malty stout. Decent without being too exciting.

Sampled at Blind Tiger Very Special Keg Night 11/19/08: Very good. Not VERY good. Taste profile was what I expected, bourbon/vanilla touch on every sip. Well-bodied.
