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.

Black with a dark brown head. Aroma and taste of boubon and sweet chocolate. Finish is a little bitter. Pretty good. TheCaptMatey (214) - Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Poured a dark brown to black colour with a toffee head that left lacing. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate, roasted coffee, and warm bourbon. Taste is coffee upfront with soft notes of chocolate and burnt malts with the encompassing hints of bourbon. Medium full bodied with moderate carbonation and an assertive malt bitterness. Definitely a sipping beer. Strong bourbon notes are a feature which seems inviting on the nose, but aggressive on the tongue. Very boozy and quite a one timer. raynman (4) - - MAY 1, 2015 does not count
On tap. First thing that hits the nose is bourbon, wow. Didn’t realize it was the bourbon barrel stout when I ordered (didn’t say on menu), but obvious as soon as you pull it towards your lips. Pours thin and dark with little head. Taste is boozy, like pouring am imperial stout into a glass previously filled with bourbon. Good beer, they hit the mark with this one. The one to have when you’re only having one. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
Thinner dark brown with no real head. Big boozy aroma, some marshmallow and oak. Very boozy even for 11%, whisky and burnt coffee. Kind of a nice sipping beer but it’s too sweet and too boozy and too thin. So I guess it’s not? I don’t know I like it

Bomber via UDbeernut. Black as amoonless prarie night. Thin, kinda wimpy head. But other than that pretty much everything good in this world in a glass of yummy. The nose was oaky and boozy....oh lions tigers and bears! Moochas grassyass! Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pitch black pour with big burnt toast, woodsy barrel and some mint on the aroma. Has a little soapy note that i’m not enjoying either. Those burnt toast and coffee grounds are present in the palate, a bit of alcohol burn. Has a sort of boring character. Not bad but I was expecting more.

On tap @ the brewpub, the first stop on TvM’s Bachelor Party Northwest Ale Trail Expedition. Okay, minus a point straight off for serving this in a schooner pilsener glass. Dark walnut brown, ring of white foam. Massive sweet rye aroma, eclipsing everything else. This is like smelling a bottle of Crown Royal! The same on the palate: hot, boozy sweet rye, with the base stout peeking out. Even with passing this around the group it remained unfinished. Niall73 (2434) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle at home, picked up while visiting Jacksonville. Pours dark brown/black with a ruby edge and an off white head. Fairly grassy aroma, dark fruity rum stuff, licorice and treacle. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Dark toffee, booze, licorice, light whisky, rum, hazelnut, lots of coca-cola and burnt toffee to finish. It’s a bit thin and the booze is slightly harsh but its OK. JStax (7125) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Draft pour into a Belgian tulip glass. Pours a near black with a beige head of foam. Good retention. The aroma is ashy and chocolate with some cigar character as well. Taste is sweet and ashy. As I drink it, I pick up more on the barrel. Big body and moderate carbonation.
