HogTownHarry's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, - JUN 19, 2013
On draught at BDT. Black, oily, opaque, solid tan lasting head. Dry aroma - more roast and dry herbal bitterness than bourbon, but it’s there, moderate impy alcohol. Taste has a lot more sweet oak / bourbon but also chocolate and table cream - this is almost like a liqueur; restrained alcohol and smoothness for days. Average body, very creamy, mild carbonation, a medium sweetened strong coffee with bourbon added finish. This is a good one. Oh yes.

bu11zeye (12908) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2016
(750ml bottle) Pours an opaque black body with a spare beige head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malt, chocolate, almond, and light coffee. Flavor of chocolate, roasted grain, bourbon, wood, and minerals.

probstblueribbon (3790) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2015
Part of a 750 ml bottle shared by Bruce. 2012 vintage. Deep brown black, thin mocha head. Aggressive barrel character, peppery, strong dark maltiness, surprisingly aggressive for a three year old beer. Strong coffee finish with a vinous quality, very woody finish. Too much, even now!

Countbeer (6341) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle: Vintage 2012: #17: Massive thanks Pushkinwow: Chouffe glass: Ashy beige brown head. Black beer. Aroma obviously shows some bourbon also minerals, roast, light coffe, some liquorice, hint of cherries and some chocolate. Flavour is roast, bitter, chocolate, bourbon, light coffee, some marzipan, light liquorice, malt roast, nice. Aftertaste is roasty, chocolate, bourbon, wood, malts, and some coffee... Low carbo, creamy close to silky mouthfeel, close to full bodied. Nice beer, bit longer on a barrel wouldn’t be wrong either...

Bouteille vieilli 4 ans. Couleur noire aux reflets bruns avec un mince col brun qui se dissipe rapidement. En bouche des saveurs tres torrefier de tabac, un peu de chocolat noir... A reeseyer plus frais...

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
750ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha in Gatineau, Quebec. Black in colour with a thin beige head, little lacing. The aroma is of alcohol, sugar, vanilla, roasted malts. The flavour is of roasted malts, vanilla, some alcohol, dark fruits, some sweetness. Warming mouthfeel, medium body, mild carbonation. Finishes long, sweet and warming. Really nice, the barrel aging doesn’t thin the beer at all. Really good.

Very oaky aroma. appearance is dark with a dark beige head. Taste is very oaky with a bit of sweetness, chocolate and coffee. Nice but a little too oaky. Would like to try the other versions.

dandeman (900) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
Olfactif: Superbes odeurs de liqueur de café, de cerises noires, de bourbon, de pruneaux, de chocolat et de noix. Complexité absolue. Puissance maximum. Notes de noisettes légèrement rancies est le seul point négatif. Visuel: Noire à opacité maximum. Petite mousse brune, crémeuse et dense qui perdure assez longtemps. Elle colle également très bien au verre en y laissant de belles traces. Gustatif: L’attaque est ronde, épaisse, complexe, avec un équilibre chocolat / café bien défendu. L’alcool est juste à point et enveloppe de sa douce chaleur les notes de café et de caramel. On y décèle une âpreté de noisettes, probablement issue du malt de whisky, qui combiné aux houblons amérisants, rendent la finale sèche et mordante. Cela lui donne beaucoup de corps, de là son intérêt avec la richesse de sa texture et son équilibre presque parfait. La maturation et le vieillissement a fait son œuvre. Par contre, on aurait espéré une plus grande complexité et une plus grande variété au niveau des saveurs. Ça demeure très standard a cet effet. Néanmoins, une bière d’une très grande qualité.

Big league stout barrel aged gave a little sweet alcohol touch to the rather espresso chocolate notes generally found in the beer. Picked it up at Bières du Monde in Aylmer

Delightful. Pours velvet black with a small beige head. Aroma is bourbon sweetness, oak, roasted malt and a thin layer of chocolate. Taste is a great balance of bourbon sweetness, oak dryness, bitter chocolate and roasted malts.
