22oz bottle (2013 or 14) served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours dark brown and sits near black and opaque in the glass. Large frothy head is semi-durable and leaves a fairly full coat of lacing on the glass.

Appealing aroma features BBL, dark roasted grains, and dark fruits. Approaches 3.75

Flavor: BBL and fainter dark bread and a hint of vanilla. Too much bourbon flavor in the finish and aftertaste, but then others will find this attractive no doubt. Approaches 4

Drinks big despite the modest 5.8% ABV.

Bottle brought to share by Umberto yesterday.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like bourbon soaked chocolate bars, with a bit of oak, and nicely, no alcohol.

This one packs a good amount of flavor in for only 6% alcohol or so. As expected, there is no burn on this one, just some chocolate, a bit of roasted expresso beans and roasted malt, heavy cream, and some sweet bourbon. It doesn't slap you in the face like some bourbon barrel aged beers will do, but it doesn't need to. It's an easy drinking "session" bourbon barrel aged stout.

The beer has a body of medium thickness, it could of course be a little thicker, but it's only 6% ABV, after all. It has a creamy mouthfeel, with a lower amount of carbonation.

A really good example of how a bourbon barrel aged beer doesn't need to be an insane ABV to taste good.
