Had this a Kinfolks in maintou springs. I reckon this is a double stout, this reputed to around 14%abv, aged in Jack Daniels Barrels

Pours pitch black with minmal head, no lacing or head retention

S: Oaky notes, caramel, chocolate & rum

T: Rich malty/rummy caramel taste with hints of charred oak & chocolate. Finishes, dry, sweet, slightly lactic & warming

MF: Thick & rich with minimal carbonation

Drank too easy for the heft. This is a very nice oaked/whisky/bourbon stout. Got me in the mood to finish off my holiday shopping. Talk about a winter warmer!

I can't believe they still had some of this kicking around at the brewery! It is pitch black with a small, off-white head that reduces to a lace. The bouquet is filled with butterscotch and bourbon (Arctic Craft pitches this as a "butterscotch" stout...it is not just a bourbon version of their Milk Stout). The flavors of bourbon, vanilla, butterscotch, and wood, and coffee come together in a perfect blend here: they all complement each other and, the bourbon/vanilla flavors in particular, are well balanced and not overwhelming. The mouthfeel is smooth and slick, and the drinkability, for a beer this strong, is so high that this beer should come with a warning from the Surgeon General.

Really, what's most amazing about this beer is how well it hides the alcohol--I had no idea that I was drinking something that was 17% abv; the flavors mask any hints of alcohol. It really is dangerous. This is one of the best barrel-aged beers I've ever had and is on par with Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout. Arctic Craft deserves to medal at the GABF with this one.

Get to the brewery on a weekend and check it out--half a pint is more than enough.

Served at the brewey last August. It was $9 a pint and served in a plastic beer pong cup. Why would you serve this in a plastic cup? That right there kind of sums up the brewery.

It looked to be a dark brown color with little head. It think this stuff was over 15%. Nose was very rich with fruits, chocolate, molasses and some bourbon oak. The taste was quite complex. Lots of fruits and chocolate with of course bourbon. The body was thick but lacked carbonation. A good beer, but it coul dhave turned out better. Alcohol well hidden.
