GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2011
500ml bottle, US version - reads "Barrel Aged Breakfast", listed at 7.5% ABV. Pours pitch black with an enormous mocha head that leaves insanely good lacing on the way down to a thick cap of foam. Aroma is heavily roasted malts, bakers chocolate and only hints of sweet vanilla and bourbon notes. There is some coffee but its swept away by the toasted oak character and an interesting, almost chalky, chocolate presence. Taste has more of a typical bourbon character up front with some vanilla and oak mixed in. The backbone is heavily roasted black malts, cocoa powder and maybe some coffee, though its faint. The finish is dominated by the toasted character and bourbon. The mouthfeel is certainly thin for an impy stout, if thats what were supposed to be comparing this too. The barrel character (more wood than bourbon) is the most prevalent characteristic. This is a decent BA stout but the barrel really takes over the underlying beer. Im such a big fan of the original and this is not as good for me. Would love to try the Brunch Weasel on bourbon as the base beer could stand up to the barrel. As a stout, very good; as an impy stout, OK.

500ml bottle.Pours a dark black with a thick brown head.Nose is coffee and bourbon...a strange and interesting combo.Taste is also very interesting with tons of coffee up front with sweet and oaky bourbon finish.What else to say but another great beer from Mikkeller.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle. Poured a creamy dark black with a thin dark beige head. Nose is coffee, roasted malt with a hint of the bourbon barrel. If I had never had the base beer I would have just come out and said this is an amazing barrel aged beer, and it is. Both versions are excellent but its possible I may prefer it without the bourbon. Then again maybe not. On third sip, definitely not!! Big roasted malts,huge coffee flavor and hints of chocolate delicately accentuated by bourbon barrel aging. Finish is a tad sweet between the chocolate and the abv.

Bottled. A black beer with a huge lazing dark brown beer. The aroma has notes of coffee, roasted malt, and wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and wood, leading to a very dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish.
