On tap at Rock Fest ’08. After having Clare’s Thirsty, this one just wasn’t right. Didn’t care much for it. Some coffe, toffee and chocolate taste, but not well balanced. Just o.k. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2008
on tap at Rock Fest ’08. listed at 6% and i didn’t even notice it was barrel aged. the coffee notes seemed very artifical and syrupy to me. syrupy chocolate as well. watery body. i wasn’t into this. dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2008
dark brown color, brown bubbles around rim. aroma of coffee, toffee and paste. flavor is smooth toffee, bitter coffee (evidently a great combination). creammy finish. enjoyable, creamy, not-too-sweet.Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2008

The original beer seems a bit lightweight for Bourbon barrel aging, but the end result was pretty satisfying. There’s a sturdy Bourbon presence, to be sure, but it never overwhelms. Dark brown, near black, in body with a short-lived tan head, the Bourbon hits the nose first and is followed quickly by scents of roasted barley and coffee. Oddly, the combination of Bourbon and sweet roasted malt somehow adds a dark fruitiness to the flavor. The finish is sweet and mildly boozey. Nice.
