HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Pours black with a small brown head. Smells of roasted malt, espresso, chocolate, oak, some vanilla, and brown sugar. Taste is roasted coffee, vanilla, bourbon, and burnt chocolate. I thought this was a great beer for the price, will it ever be a top ranked beer...no, but it is pretty tasty nonetheless.

Bottle pours a jet black brew with a thin tan/brown head. Roasted scent with dark sugar and bourbon. Taste is roasty with the sweet boubon kick.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
black with a puffy cream head, soft lacing. Plum, chocolate, light anise nose. Thin flavor, heavy roast with a light bourbon note, almost paper like bitterness. Overly sweet, hot compared to ellez.

750ml bottle. Dark creamy pour, dark brown/black with a thin head. Oily lacing, slightly spotty. Good amount of booze in the aroma, oaky and malty. Flavor is somewhat soy saucy with hints of chocolate and bourbon. Somewhat of a heavy drink but still very good.

Nickls (2501) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle. Darker tan head and completely black body. Vanilla, chocolate, roast, and slight booze. Lots of roast, slight woodiness and barely and bourbon, chocolate and coffee come through nicely. Medium to thicker, with tiny bubbly carbonation. Solid, but really didnt catch much bourbon which was the only detractor.

Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Aroma is weird...cant quite figure out what it is Im smelling here. Candy of some sort? Smells almost like bourbon soaked onions. Taste is okay, sweet chocolate notes and a bitter finish. Slightly dry and lots of bourbon flavor in the finish. Somethings a little off for me in this beer, but overall not bad.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours opaque black with a large, persistent, lacy tan head. The aroma is chocolatey with some roasty notes, vanilla, prune, and a subtle, but present, bourbon note. The flavor is rich cocoa with an espresso-like roasted bite. Some pine and earthy hops are also evident. I can taste the bourbon barrel, but its actually fairly subdued. It finishes with chocolate and slight alcohol warmth. The whole thing has a very nice creamy texture which makes for easy drinkin. Quite a good beer.

Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Shared w/ Dasilky Todd in his manliest of man caves. Sharp alcohol, dark fruit, and chocolate on the nose. Taste is big dry cocoa and alcohol. Sweet behind. Not Todds, the beer.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2011
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, ash, light vanilla, slight raw dough, and lactose. No real Bourbon or oak in the aroma. Poured pitch black in color with a massive, dense, frothy, brown head that diminished very slowly, but lasted throughout. Opaque. Sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of roasted malt, chocolate, light piney hops, wood, tar, char, slight alcohol, and slight vanilla. Full body. Smooth, slightly tingly, then lightly dry to dry texture. Average carbonation. Roasted malt, chocolate, slight wood, light tar, finish is dry. 11%ABV is very well hidden throughout, and really just slightly noticeable in the flavor. Really does not seem different than the non-barrel-aged version.
