This is much better than a regular DL. The barrel flavor just keeps everything in balance. Regular DL is a sweet mess compared with this whale. Plus the barrel flavor just tastes amazing. Its still very sweet but drinkable. Had more than half of bottle for myself, and I could drink this like water.

hackobock (3814) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2016
July 28, 2015. Bottle, vintage 2015, received in a trade with craftbeer1over, thanks!
Black oily liquid with a tiny brown head. Aroma is very sweet malty and boozy with lots of bourbon, caramel, vanilla, some prunes, figs, milk chocolate, coffee, light roast. Taste is very sweet with caramel, vanilla, dried fruits, some burnt dark sugar, milk chocolate and some bitter dark chocolate notes, coffee. Warming bourbon alcohol in the finish. Full bodied, oily texture, almost flat.
Good but very sweet...

Simply amazing, pulling together everything that can make this style great. Thick and creamy as can be, with incredible balance and length. Tons of dark chocolate and cocoa mingle with the evident but not overpowering bourbon notes, picking up subtle hints of soy, molasses, oak, caramel that melt through the pillow-soft finish. Incredible, tasted on draft at 2016 Dark Lord Day and was the highlight of my day.

Catch up rating from last nights RIS bottle share. As expected this is good stuff, 2009 vintage, but not the best of the night. Extremely solid and robust stout, bourbon barrel notes abound. Plenty of heat as well.

Consistently one of the best bourbon barrel aged stouts. FFF makes this about every other year as one of the DL variants and it usually reigns supreme. Taste and aroma are always right on point, not too much bourbon, but just right. Nice on the palate and overall and one of the early yet consistently best examples of bourbon barrel aged stouts. A must have
