Sampled at Great American Beer Festival 9/24/15. Aroma of dark malts, chocolate, coffee, oak, vanilla and light bourbon. Rich and full bodied. Nice. jackadutton (65) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Keg at Beavertown, Rainbow Project 2015. First of all - it’s a magnificent looking beer. Lively and carbonated, but an incredibly rich cappuccino head (3-4 finger head). Aroma of caramel, vanilla ice cream, roasted malt and slight coffee. Taste of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, mild coffee and dark fruits. Really enjoyable and dangerously drinkable for the ABV. Excellent. juffage (173) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Oh keg at Magic Rock Tap, Rainbow Project 2015. Is this retired, really? I enjoyed this. Has a nice vanilla ice cream thing going on. Slight red chili aftertaste, bitter dark chocolate. Slight whisky presence - bourbon and a little peat. Super duper head retention for any impy stout, leaving a small dark brown soy-sauce looking head around the rim. Everything seems to achieve a really harmonious balance, with no one flavour dominating. You really want to live in it. ansalon (4117) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2015
CBC 2015. Pours black with a low tan head. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, molasses, vanilla and fudge. Taste is caramel, chocolate, molasses, vanilla, fudge and roasted barrel notes. Mouthfeel is very smooth and velvety with no carbonation.

Pours black with low, thick tan head. Aroma of molasses, dates, bourbon, vanilla, coffee. Taste is sweet, creamy vanilla and chocolate, light coffee finish. Body is rich and creamy with soft carbonation. Dr_MedievAle (215) - Alabama, USA - NOV 25, 2014
on draft at blackstone in iowa city.
really unimpressive barrel aging by surly, here. on the nose is light charcoal and some floral hops, roasty malts. appearance is fine -- not the darkest of motor oils but with a nice brown head. tastes of bitter flowers, some spruce, baker’s chocolate, and a flavorless bourbon burn. not much barrel presence at all.
