Bottle to goblet at the RBAG14 warmup
Strange aroma, not quite funk, horse blanket, soy and rooibos. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, nutmeg, mace. kbudd19 (1009) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle shared by Ferris at RBAG. Thick black pour with a light layer of mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts, oak, and a hint of bourbon. Taste is fairly toasty, some nice roast, a bit bland and not much barrel. Ferris (15013) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle - Big Whisky and barrel notes with chocolate roast malts. Jet black with a decent brown head. Whisky notes and oatmeal. Silky smooth and not as complex as the nose. rdixon77 (2763) - Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Thanks to joedevivre for the share. Dark brown pour. Chocolate and bourbon dominant nose and taste. Some char and roasted malts in the flavor as well. Excellent balance between barrel, booze, and sweetness. Excellent.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a nice large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of deep black chocolate notes with some light bourbon notes is quite interesting. Taste is a mix between some vanilla and bourbon notes mix in with some sweet black chocolate notes. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed stout but I was expecting flavours to shine through even more so. demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2014
12oz bottle to snifter. Dark pour. Lovely head. Smooth mouth feel from the oats. Nothing over the top. Subtle barrel. Very smooth and drinkable. markextrae (4410) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2014

Bottle, smell is sweet vanilla, appearance is black with thin brown head, taste is of sweet dark chocolate and bourbon which finishes with a slight coffee taste jayzz (481) - Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Solid whiskey barrel stout. The base is solid, but seems to have oxidized quite a bit in the span of only half a year. The barrels could be bringing a better contribution in my opinion. But this is certainly not a bad or offensive stout by any means.
