Bought at Binny's, poured into a stemless wine glass.

Looks great, a ton of carbonation, head was around a while. 1 finger of dark khaki lace.

Smell was quite a lot of bourbon, maybe some chocolate.

Taste - ah, what can I say. It's good, not the best BA offering I have had and not the worst. The carbonation REALLY takes over a lot of the taste. I bet it is fantastic with a year or two of age.

Feel - again, too much carbonation to really appreciate what is happening in the beer.

Overall- a good beer, a beer definitely worth trying but also DEFINITELY worth aging. Price tag is a bit high, which is the only thing preventing me from the ultimate test - buying it again.

Very disappointed. where did the flavor, smell and feel of a big stout go? Not a bad
beer. But come on North Coast 17 clams for this.

Disappointed with this one. Ten years ago, Ol raspy was the first real stout I ever had, so I was really expecting more.

Too carbonated for my tastes.

And most of all... Where is the flavor from the barrel? I got
Nearly nothing.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter, and definitely doesn't warrant its high price. Probably won't buy another bottle, but I would like to try on tap.

Draft pour
Black body with a thin covering of brown head that sticks around for a while.
Chocolate, caramel, wood and bourbon aroma.
Chocolate, caramel, dark fruit, and bourbon. It's a little warm. Imparts some good bourbon flavor.
Medium carbonation which was more than expected. Full medium body.
