willisread (3251) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks TimE. Pours a pitch black with a little bit of head that dissipates. Huge oak forward nose that just doesnt quit. Quite like being in a nice sento or onsen really. Very oak driven on the palate with some vanilla and roasted malt notes coming out. The bourbon comes out on the finish but isnt overly bitter by any means. Very smooth and oaky. Good stuff.

TimE (5718) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 3, 2016
Pitch black color. Huge chard oak notes That are just massive. The oak is just huge oaky. Biggest oaky nose in the nose like you are in a sauna. Very light body. Lots of oak, but the actually stout is kinda diminished and not so powerful.

mansquito (6258) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC ($9): Pours blackish brown with a brownish head. Aroma is whiskey, chocolate, roasted malts, and some nice yeast. Taste is rather light for a stout. Nice light whiskey taste... really not overwhelming. Chocolate is pretty nice here. This is a really subtle example of a barrel-aged beer in my opinion. Sweetness is done just right. Slightly boozy aftertaste.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
dark sepia, thin beige head. Woody dry cocoa nose, dominated by vanilla. Bit ashy and green up front, woody until the thin bourbon finish, empty oatmeal and oxidation through the acidic end. Palatable, smooth, but definitely past its prime.

shadowaeb (16) - , Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2013
On tap at bukowski tavern. Nice frothy head, dissipates soon after drinking. Smells like vanilla, caramel, and typical Belgian quad characteristics. Lighter palate, alcohol not overpowering. Tastes like it smells, with some more pronounced overripe fruit or maybe some dried figs.
