Buckeyeboy provided this 12oz bottle tonight at a random Tuesday tasting.

Pours pitch black with a coating thickness... dark brown head leaves good lacing.

Nose has pretty good barrel presence, but seems pretty ashy. Vanilla and hints of cocoa are hammered pretty heavy by an acrid dark malt presence.

Flavor is a little better... slightly more sweetness helps tie the barrel and dark maltiness together... but it falls pretty flat on the finish and a lingering ashy/burnt malt profile just hangs and hangs.

Body is lighter than expected... carbonation is pretty proper.

Thanks again Jeremy!!

A - Nice and dark. Almost black. Formed a nice head which dissipated after a bit. Minimal lacing in a snifter.
S - Vanilla and bourbon hit the nose first.
T - A nice, mellow bourbon shows itself first. Very good for the ABV. Finishes with a semi-sweet roasty chocolate.
M - Not too heavy, not too light. Definitely lingers around long after a taste.
O - Excellent BA stout. Excited to see how these mature.

On tap at Sam's Quick Stop, Durham NC, 10oz pour into a snifter

A- pours pitch black in color with with creamy dark-tan head that retains long after the pour, leaving some lace behind

S- big bourbon aroma up front which gives some vanilla and toasted oak aromas, chocolate on the finish

T- big shot of bourbon up front leaves no doubt that this one is barrel aged, oak barrel juice continues through to mid-palate, eventually giving way to a creamy dark chocolate flavor, that lasts into a sweet finish, with more bourbon on the linger

M- medium-heavy body, creamy and viscous mouthfeel, medium prickly carbonation and a pure velvety finish

O- a big bourbon presence from this one, at times the base beer seems to have a hard time matching up to the big bourbon flavors. This is definitely a bourbon lovers stout

Serving type: on-tap
