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.

Dark, dark pour but not quite black. Slightest tint of red sneaking out. Mocha head, 2 fingers worth, and nice head retention. Thin lace all around the glass.

Nose is dark roast coffee, sweet chocolate, and flavorful citrus hops. The hops combine with the coffee to give off almost a cherry feel, but the citrus comes through in the end. Very sweet nose.

Very hop forward for the style. Citrus hits right away, even before the chocolate and coffee work in. Flavors combine for a lighter than expected finish, but again very hop forward. One of the hoppier stouts I've had.

Lighter feel than I expected and wanted, but may be by design with the hop character here.

Overall very well done. If you want a nice impy stout with good hop character, give this a try.
