Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a dark brown with a thin beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of slightly ashy or at least burnt malts, coconut, coffee, smoke and bourbon. Taste is of chocolate, coffee, bourbon, smoke and a little coconut. Drying alcohol. Body is full, carbonation low and mouthfeel is just rich. A nice bourbon stout that aged pretty well! tom10101 (6339) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2016

Good stuff, but I don’t pick up the bourbon or maple. I do get the oranges, oak, along with cocoa, coffee, black malt. leather. Short bitter finish. BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2015
The bourbon and smoke did not meld well together here, and I love smoked stouts as well as bourbon barrel stouts. Something is waaaay dry on the smoke side, and the barrels weren’t really picked up as much as the booze flavors themselves. Not terrible, but kinda meh. tightslice (1536) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 29, 2015
