Pp Bourbon Barrel Night Rider Spring ’12 and Winter ’12: Draft. Superb stuff, big warming flavor with creamy, bourbon heat, brown sugar, dark and milk chocolate. Big mouthfeel and long, coating finish. Just decadent with all the right heft of the barrel aging. Always worth having. 4.4. onceblind (9397) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2013
At Avery Strong Ale Fest 2013--black pour with a khaki head. Boozy chocolaty aroma with sugar-cane-rum, dark chocolate, gentle roastiness, and oak. Flavor is pretty bourbony but without a lot of booze heat. Flavor has molasses, sugar cane bourbon, deep chocolate and a light, dry finish. mikem409 (2022) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2013

Pours jet black with no head. Aroma of bourbon and soy sauce. Taste is dark roasted malts, sweet chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, and bourban. Warms the body. A little thin, but still awesome. Sledutah (7484) - Utah, USA - FEB 10, 2013

Appearance: Black with a dark tan head and some lacing
Aroma: Roasty, vanilla and bourbon
Taste: Roasted malts, vanilla, bourbon and oak
This was great
On tap @ PP Carlsbad. Squid ink pour with shades of onyx, mahogany, and mocha...a frothy latte head creates spatters, spots, and rings inside the glass. Aroma a bit more subtle than the flavor but still sublime. Molasses, cocoa, brownie batter, rich fudge, vanilla, raw oak, and caramel are all there. Nice bourbon influence adds complexity and balance versus distraction. Everything melds remarkably well. Exponentially better than the non-BA version. Milkshake consistency. Delicious!

28/12/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Pizza Port Tap Takeover. Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma beige-cappuccino, leggera, quasi evanescente. Al naso vaniglia, cioccolato fondente, caffè, liquirizia. In bocca è dolciastra, cioccolato fondente, caffè, ancora una punta di liquirizia, una nota etilica ben presente. Corpo pieno, consistenza cremosa, carbonazione soft. Un’altra grandiosa imperial stout!
