This beer pours a dark black color, with a large creamy tan head. The smell is full of choclate notes and a bit of alchool. The taste is very full, alot of choclate flavors surprising. A bit of coffee flavors, some oats, very complex and complete. Good full flavor, stays on the palete, great carbonation. Overall I found this fantastic, I am unsure if my bottle has aged at all, but very impressed.

Once again, Biglobo blows me away with another winner. Thank you again. Tasted on 5/23/11. Reviewed from notes:

Cork pops with lots of pressure behind it.

A: Pours black with a finger and a half of khaki colored head. Lots of head for a bourbon barrel stout

S: Strong whisky/bourbon on the nose. Yeehaw. Also hints of chocolate

T: Strong bourbon and oak flavors shine through. Lots of bourbon, did I mention bourbon flavors stand out? Almost a spicy flavor in there as well.

M: This is where the beer really throws me for a loop. Strong champagne like bubbles in the carbonation. Beer has a really light feel on the tongue. Some heat on the nose as well.

O: This bourbon barrel stout has some really unique qualities I appreciated. It puts itself ahead of the curve by being different than the rest of the -bal aged stouts I've had. Would definitely have again, in a heartbeat.

Spectacular beer from New Jersey. Poured into a Collins glass @ 59 degrees.

A- Jet black beer with one finger of head, light tan.

S- Sweet fruit, currants or black cherries maybe. Slight alcohol on the nose.

T- great taste. Very complex. Chocolate, molasses, currants, cherries and moderate alcohol flavors.

M- slightly dry finish to complement the sweet taste. Would have preferred it slightly drier.

Overall a great beer. I think 59 was a bit too high of a temp for serving but I was feeling impatient. Overall a great beer.
