Taste was a mix of dark cocoa, bourbon, oak, and vanilla, some booze into a bit of dark fruit, cherry, sweet brown sugar, finishing slightly sweet, boozy.

12 oz bottle, dated 11/20/14, poured in a tulip. The beer is jet black with a thick tan head that sticks around and leaves great lacing, Aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, cafe con leche, and cocoa. The different aromas develop and show themselves more if you take your time with it. On to taste. Big oaky, bourbon, and roasty flavors dominate the palate. The beer is sweet up front, with plenty of vanilla and sugar. Immediately the oak barrel joins the party with some bourbon and lots of dark roasted coffee. The beer finishes with a sticky sweetness, almost like a bourbon mixed with honey. Alcohol warmth is there, and at 11.7%, it should be. Overall this was a really nice barrel aged stout.

Tap at Ashleys. Very dark brown pour with a small ring of head with big bubbles. Aroma is very nice. Chocolate milk, vanilla, oak, and light toast. Tastes sweet. Lots of lactose and some brown sugar, nice vanilla and oak barrel influence. Light chocolate and caramel. Thin to medium body. Very good but a touch thin.

Refrigerated 12 oz. bottle from clownoisseur, poured into a snifter. Black with small light brown head. Aroma is dark malt and some whiskey, medium/thick body, creamy texture, medium carbonation, and little small-bubble lacing. Taste is dark malt, roasty, whiskey, and alcohol. Pretty significant alcohol in this one.

wedgie9 (2697) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Tasted on 11/16/13 from a bottle at our Avery Barrel-Aged tasting. Pours nearly black with an average tan head that leaves average lace. The nose is coffee and vanilla with dark roast and dark chocolate. The flavor is the same dark roasted coffee and chocolate with some vanilla and an added caramel and butterscotch note along with some rye spice. The body is full with average carbonation and a long vanilla, coffee and lightly spicy rye finish.

Fantastic beer courtesy my Secret Santa. Thank you sir! Aroma was very nice.Vanilla bean, slight wood and dark malt with a big whiskey backbone. Pour was a nice deep dark brown/near black with a one finger tan head that left quickly. Taste was as good as the aroma. Very creamy and sweet with the whiskey and wood playing perfectly with the thick mouth feel and strong dark roasted malts. Chocolate came out more as it warmed and paired nicely with the vanilla flavor. Nice carbonation round this beer out.

Quite surprised with this beer. It has a slight bitterness and a strong taste of whiskey and vanilla that mixes well with the beer. Top notch
