BroSpud (2147) - , Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2015
22oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a frothy tan head. Various flavor notes including coffee, chocolate, smoke and dark fruits. Also seemed to have a bit of a milk stout lactose sweetness and sourness as well. Kind of weird combo of flavors. This is good but didnt like it as much as I had hoped.

stevoj (4705) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle from Boise Co-op. Dark black pour, minimal head. Body is a bit thin, but all other characteristics are right on. Gentle aroma leads into richer and fuller taste, tons of roast grains. BBA elements a bit muted, but still a pretty solid RIS. One of the better ones from Idaho.

Foamy dark tan head lingered for a solid 5 minutes with great lacing... expected black brew. Nose has quite a bit of oak and whiskey notes that when cold dominated the dark malts and fruits.. this brew needs warmth to really shine. With warmth, coffee and cocoa start to come out alot more. Flavors are pretty much the same as the aromas but they emerge a little sooner, but it still needs to really warm up to allow the malts to help balance the heady wood and bourbon. Body seems a bit more thin compared to bottles of the regular Ive had in the past. If my predictions are accurate, the bottles of these are going to need some time to meld.. but this was pretty enjoyable off tap.

Beerdrinker79 (2173) - Idaho, USA - JUL 18, 2015
22 oz bottle, PDT 11/14/14- Pours black with a tan head that retains nicely. Aroma is bourbon, unique wood aroma here, strong, malt, roasted. The taste is similar, odd wood taste, bourbon is noticeable but not intruding, dark berries, red wine like, almost tart, like some unintended bugs got in there. Different.

ICEatALAMO (1340) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle. The pour is black. The aroma is an odd sour bourbon. The taste is also a little off, the stout even seems a little thin. Kinda boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
