Bourbon makes it quite rich. Glad to finally have this and and mark it of my list. tricksta_p (4658) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2017
Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is dark malts, cocoa, soft bourbon, oak, dark chocolate, subtle chili, vanilla, espreso, some alcohol. Flavour is sweet and mildly bitter with a slight chili burn and mild booze. Body is full. While I like the original just a bit more, I must say that this is how you do proper barrel aging. None of that harsh boozy liquor nonsense. Delicious! MetalNHopHead (1976) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUL 19, 2017
In a week filled with Imperial Stouts, Barrel-Aged Bible Belt very well might be the best one. Aptly housed in Heaven Hill whiskey barrels, the vanilla and cacao have been given more of a chance to develop while the peppers have been softened somewhat. However, this base brew is still potent enough that stands on its own - the barrel flavor is a nice addition but this brew hasn’t been totally overwhelmed with oak flavor. Even with all of the add-ins and the unlucky 13% ABV, this beer never feels heavy or cluttered. It’s balanced and uncommonly cohesive for an Imperial Stout collaboration. I’ve had some wonderful Stouts, but this is right up in the top tier.

A- Mild chilies, subtle bourbon, chocolate.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Chocolate, mild chilies, subtle booze, oak.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish.
O- Another spot on RIS from Prairie. Well done. Personally, I would like the coffee and vanilla to be a bit more pronounced but really I shouldn’t be complaining. It’s good. Jashiu (1322) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JUL 18, 2017

Keg at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell, London. A black coloured pour with virtually no head to speak of. Rich bourbon, chocolate, vanilla aroma. Tastes rich, bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, some dark fruit, sweet and boozy. Lovely stuff but a half pint of this was enough for me.
