Really? Growler. Reviews in the 3.00+ range???? Barrel Aging not as pronounced as I would like though. But solid damn beer. Dont understand why reviews are so low.

Bottle from taproom. Pours black with an inch of khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Solid bourbon notes on the nose and tongue. Easy drinking. Hides its booze well. Definitely my fave of the Lailas.

Bottle from STA Leeman Ferry - looks the part. Taste more bourbon barrels then the base beer, so the alcohol shows. Caramel, chocolate, vanilla, oak, and and dryness.

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, light notes of dark chocolate/coffee, bourbon and oak and light vanilla, and dough. Flavor the same, bourbon blends well with the stout. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

Bottle (22 oz) shared at tasting. Thanks to Matthew for this one! Pitch black with a small creamy beige head leaving a small bubbly ring of foam after a few minutes. Flavors of bourbon, tobacco, vanilla, roasted malts, boozy notes, soy sauce and fudge. Taste is moderately sweet, mildly acidic probably from the oak, a tiny bit salty and definitely has some alcohol heat though its not over the top. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Salty soy-sauce finish followed by a moderate alcohol heat. A middle of the pack Bourbon BA RIS for me, but at least it was somewhat different from most so it was really fun to try. Tasty.

mathieuc (3907) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours a good black with a brown head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of slightly oxidized alcohol, bourbon and chocolate. Taste is more fudgey bourbon and coffee. A slight spiciness that I dont want to call chilies but it might be just that. Body is medium-full and carbonation moderate. A pretty good barrel-aged double stout but it isnt like there arentt a million others just like it out there!
