4.23/5  rDev +4.4%

Appearance: Pours fudge brown with a nice bubble show that layers into a sturdy tan head; a few shards a lace stick to the glass

Smell: Chocolate, slightly charred oak, vanilla and Bourbon

Taste: Chocolate and Bourbon tones intermingle, with caramel and vanilla adding sweetness; in the mid-palate, the booziness increases; after the swallow, there are hints of coffee and oak that join the other flavors to produce a balanced finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; others have complained that it is too thin and while that may be true compared to the biggest beers in the category, it still works for this beer

Overall: This beer flies well under the radar but is really good; it is head and shoulders above the other beers I have tried from this brewery (some of which have been pretty good)

Thanks, sj3324, for the opportunity

12 oz bottle (repeated in Nov. 2015).

Flavor: Has a very rich flavor with good use of barrel aging. Slightly smokey but no burnt qualities. Excellent balance.

Feel: Medium-full body with appropriate carbonation.

O: Given no expectations, a pleasant surprise. Highly recommended.

From 05/08/13 notes. Bought this a couple weeks ago in Middletown, NJ at Spirits. 12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

a - Pours a pitch black color with two inches of dark tan head and low carbonation evident. Looks like a great stout.

s - Smells of roasted malts, toasted malts, burnt malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak, light bourbon, and light dark fruits. Was a bit muted at first but as it warms up it gets much better, and the bourbon is light, but finally comes out.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, sweet dark fruits, toasted malts, bread, molasses, and some burnt malts. Taste is sweeter than the nose and has a little more bourbon, though it still isn't overpowering. Pretty nice and a slight step up from the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Body is smooth and somewhat thick. Pretty nice.

o - Overall a really nice BA stout from Allentown; I've only had a few of their beers but this is my favorite so far, by far. The nose and taste get a ton better as it warms up, and some nice light sweet bourbon throughout. Worth checking out, would get it again.

12 oz bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A: Deep black body with a foamy, creamy and frothy medium brown colored head. Great sticky lacing on the sides along with a thick bubbly retention ring. Very nice looking beer.

S: Toffee, dark chocolate, lots of oak, vanilla and sweet bourbon on the back. It's interesting as it doesn't really smell much like there's a bourbon presence or that it spent any time in bourbon barrels.

T: Big bourbon served neat up-front, dark chocolate, sweet vanilla, toffee and hints of caramel towards the back end. Certainly is surprising how much bourbon is here on the taste judging by the aroma. It does taste a little hot but it's not going overboard - enough to let you know the bourbon is there.

M: A little thin and quite bubbly, but it does have a smooth characteristic to it. Not creamy and full-bodied but it's not horrible.

I started off with a single bottle instead of a 4-pack because I didn't know how this would turn out but it's a pleasant surprise. Enough bourbon to warrant the time in the barrels, and great balance. One to try for sure.

EDIT: This got a very astringent note when it warmed up, knocking down "overall" half a point accordingly.

Pours a dark brown, nearly that of motor oil. Off white head forms and recedes to a near perfect circle. The smell is of old bourbon barrel and char. The taste has chocolate, roasted malt, bitter smoke, and some bourbon.

Draft at The Boilermaker in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours pitch black with a two finger frothy beige head that very slowly fades into a lasting cap.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Sweet yet roasted nose with a very well integrated barrel character.  Lots of spicy bourbon sweetness along with earthy oak, vanilla, toffee and coconut without overpowering the malt character.  Roasted with subtle hints of coffee, toast and dark chocolate. Really nice.

Medium bodied and fuller than expected with a nice balance of roasted malt and bourbon barrel.  Dry and roasty up front with hints of burnt toast, roasted coffee bean and dark chocolate followed by sweet, spicy bourbon notes. Hints of  earthy oak compliment the dryness of the malt profile but there is still a lot of sweetness.  Really nice whiskey/bourbon flavor with silky vanilla, marshmallow and coconut notes.  Very well balanced with barrel character excellently integrated.  Best beer I've had from this brewery.

Snagged a bottle of this for 5 bucks at the local House of 1,000 beers. Into a pint glass.

A - BB Insidious pours a very deep black opaque color with just a 1/4 inch of mocha head that pulls back to a moderate lace ring. Just like the regular Insidious it is a bit thin for an Imperial stout Medium bodied at most.
S - Well I was pleasantly surprised but the aroma black fruit currants, mocha and chocolate, mild roasts, and a decent dose of vanilla and soft bourbon. Nice.
T - Well it's good not too deep with the bourbon tones which was nice. More sweet than I expected vanilla and dark chocolate highlighting. Very balanced flavors.
M - Well I didn't go in expecting a thick Imperial or high octane bourbon so with a medium bodied chewy Imperial this met its mark.

Overall a very tasty easy going bourbon barrel aged stout. If it's still at the house I may grab another bottle well with the 5 dollar price tag.

Poured out into a tulip, about a finger of great looking mocha head. Smells like milk chocolate, some vanilla and faint dark fruits(raisins, fig). From the look and smell alone, really excited to try this. Tastes of creamy milk chocolate, a slight bitter chocolate undertone and an oaky finish. I'm not picking up any bourbon in this which depending on how you look at it could be a good thing or a bad thing. Mouth feel is on the thinner side with pretty good carb. Overall, I like my bourbon barrel beers to taste like bourbon. This fell flat for me in taste and mouth feel. More like a milk stout. I had such I hopes after the appearance and smell of it. Still worth trying, but below a top tier BA stout for me. Good comparison beer, Dragon's Milk.

Aggressively poured from 12oz. bottle into snifter.

A:nice lil head that quickly morphs in to just an outer ring around the glass.

S: Smells of vanilla and faint bourbon, very inviting.

T: well, if this were a reg. stout and i wasn't expecting any bourbon involvement then i would have no complaints, but i get zero bourbon in the taste. Still enjoyable.

M: I enjoy the mouthfeel, theres a lil more cabonation than expected but it works for this beer.

O: wish there were more bourbon notes and the vanilla from the nose would have made it to the taste, but its def. still enjoyable. Glad to have tried it.

Thanks to baybum for this bottle…wait, when did I trade with him? I swear there’s a time-continuum loop in the back of my fridge. Anyway, this 12 oz. has now been liberated. Down the hatch.

The pour is maple bat black with slightly more carbonation. The smell is pretty close to a maple tree, perhaps with a cup of coffee at four paces. Faint.

I never saw Insidious - it looked terrible, but then, most movies are. Strong chocolate girded with a lovely roast that’s edged with bitterness - why isn’t that the Wal-Mart greeter? No bourbon - the barrel consists of a nice shot of vanilla that spreads out from the point of contact & gets into everything; no woodiness, either. Smooth & nicely drinkable, this is a barrel-aged stout (at least it says so on the bottle) that you could swig mindlessly. And happily.

Simpler. Easy. Lacking in barrel, but hey, a good, solid stout.

12oz bottle courtesy of Beeradelphia (thanks Ryan!) poured into mason jars and shared with my brother 4/6/2013 while watching Michigan defeat Syracuse to go to the NCAA title game.

Aroma: Smells like oak with some dark chocolate sweetness emanating. A little bit of vanilla and bourbon but its mostly the chocolate and wood. Definitely a substantial aroma but not super overwhelming. Smells nice and inviting. (4)

Colour: Looks great. Dark black, cola coloured when illuminated. Pours with a nice 2cm tan head that sticks around for a long while and leaves a tan film on the surface of the beer that persists nicely. Lacing is non-existent, but it's probably more to do with the improvised glassware than the beer's composition. (4)

Flavour: Dark chocolate, molasses, oak, roast maltiness and bourbon in descending order of strength, with a nice bourbon and oak finish that leaves my mouth somewhat dry. There isn't a ton of bourbon but that makes it a supporting characteristic that contributes more complexity to the beer. I very much enjoyed drinking this one. (4)

Mouthfeel: Thinner side of a full body, nice and creamy feel that leaves the mouth dry and wanting more after each swallow. Carbonation is decent, nothing special. There isn't much burn at all, though more of it is on the back end as the beer warms up. Very good and enjoyable to quaff. (4)

Overall: A nicely done, slightly more sessionable bourbon barrel imperial stout that is nice to drink while watching a basketball game with my brother. It's not quite a sipper, but its not quite a quaffer either. It's a nice mix with balanced components that make for an enjoyable drink. It's not the most complex, its not the most bourbon barrel-y, it's not the biggest beer, but it's a well-done effort by a local Pennsylvania brewery. Thanks a ton to Beeradelphia for including this as an extra in a trade. (4)

1205th Review on BA
Bottle to Snifter

Thanks to Cpabeer and Stormking47 for this one

App- A generally opague black pour some spotty notes of brown intermixed. A fast receding two finger khaki head formed and left a small dotted cling then was gone with a pond layer taking over.

Smell- Opens with a very black coffee note and settles to a bit of dark smooth chocolate and maybe a hint of vanilla. The whispy booze note comes up but doesnt overpower the nose. Small amounts of bourbon are present.

Taste- Started out as a good roast flavor with the coffee coming in and settled into the chocolate and a bit of cream. The bourbon really isnt there but adds more of a grainy booze note. Good pockets of flavor and hides the booze well.

Mouth- A lighter mediun body with a good creamy note to it. Medium thick carbonation and leaves some prickly booze notes, a bit of roast and chocolate.

Drink- Well a barrel aged stout in a 12oz bottle. Good
flavors with some smoothness at times and some grainular notes at times. Overall, good beer. Id like to sit on another bottle.

Pours black without much of a head on it, much like the regular version. Nose is chocolaty bourbon - nice. On the palate, this opens with milk chocolates that move to spicy bourbony vanilla flavors as expected out of the barrel aging. Ends with a combination of dark chocolates mixed with some coffee. This is a decent barrel aged RIS here. Still a rough around the edges but a solid effort here. Worth a shot.

I bought a 4-pack ($9.99) of this at Allentown Beer Works at the beginning of June. Yesterday (17JUN12) I quaffed 2 bottles while laxing out in the yard.

Using a small tulip, this bier filled the glass nicely with a dark, dense brown liquid. It poured out in an oily fashion, topped by a foamy, deep beige layer of creamy bubbles. Nice lacing stuck to the glass also. Choco and roastiness were present in the nose, with the bourbon evident but not overly strong. Low carbo made for an easy feel on the tongue, whereas the body was in the medium category.

Dark chocolate and coffee flavors were all over the palate. It was roasty but not bitter or charred at all, and tasted of mocha-like malted milk balls. The woody, oaky bourbon notes came on well, not being strong or overpowering, yet they still made their presence known easily. This one also had a suggestion of coconut, which I attribute to the barrel aging. Hopping was light, with the bourbon action lingering well. Solid! Zum Wohl!!

I sampled a 12 oz bottle of this beer poured into a snifter at cellar temperature. The beer pours a dark cola brown with minimal tan head foaming up and fading quickly to nothing.
Aroma is dark brown sugar and molasses, some burnt coffee and a little vanilla and bourbon. The nose is not overpowering but is enjoyable.
First sip reveals a thick body with mild rolling carbonation. The beer exhibits a rich hearty texture.
Flavor is all malt with molasses and coffee grounds mixing with roast malt and some lingering bourbon on the finish.
I dont really get much from the booze or any hops to speak of in this beer.
There is a bit of stickiness on my lips and palate after each swallow and the roasted malt lingers too.
I enjoy this beer and find it highly drinkable. I would buy it again if I found a bottle.

12oz bottle into a Ranger Creek tulip. Thanks to NoLeafClover44 for the trade!

Great-looking pour: body is a deep chestnut hue with a core of black molasses. The head towers on the pour and retains well, slowly retreating to a fat ring of custard-brown foam. Aroma is very nice, delivering notes of milk chocolate, bourbon barrel, vanilla, and a hint of roasted malts.

The flavor amplifies the roastiness and the chocolate is dark and verging on bitter (in a good way). Dark fruit and bourbon heat chimes in mid-sip, and finishes with a warming alcohol presence. The one major downside to this beer is the body, which is thin and a tad over-carbonated, making the end a touch harsh when the booze takes over. Still, it's a delicious attempt at a barrel-aged imperial stout and probably the best beer I've had from Allentown/Fegley's.

Poured into my Bell's snifter.

Jet black a very small tan head. The head disappeared as fast as a head on a 7-up, you could hear the bubbles fizzing away, gone in 60 seconds. After a few minuets there wasn't a bubble to be found. No lacing either, the beer looked oily on the walls of the glass. The smell was mostly bourbon and roasted coffee. Taste was the same, boozy, burnt coffee or espresso and had a light alcohol warmth going down. The flavors are just what you would expect for a bourbon aged beer. It made a good sipper. This was my third style from Fegley's and I have enjoyed them all!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance is a dark chocolate brown with more than a finger of head which lingered well enough to leave some nice lacing. Rich bourbon nose. Bourbon flavor blends well with the roasted malt of the stout. Not overdone like some barrel-aged stouts. Subtle alcohol warmth in the finish but also some sweetness as well.

When it comes to imperial stouts, I usually prefer the standard version to the barrel-aged one. This is one of the best barrel-aged beers that I have ever had the pleasure of drinking.

12oz, 2012 batch. Purchased at Pinocchio's in Media, PA at their PtY event on 2/29/12. Poured this into a Pinocchios snifter.

A: Pours a deep, dark brown (almost opaque) color. Initially I got almost a finger of tight bubbled head. But it faded quickly. Definitely see some alcohol feet and there are some lacing trails. Lots of carbonation too, as I can see bubbles on the bottom.

S: I get lots of vanilla, toffee and dark chocolate on the nose. Not getting any char or coffee right away.

T: This might be a tad over carbonated. It kinda takes away from the body and flavor of the beer. It makes it almost thin. I get a little coffee bitterness in the front of the mouth, but nothing overpowering. Then in the middle of the mouth you get those vanilla and dark chocolate notes. But again, the mouth feel is too thin. On the finish, sweet chocolate flavors and some toffee are what I get.

M: Full but thinner than expected. Knocking down a half point due to this.

Poured into a cigar city snifter. Pours an opague black color with a flimzy lighter brown heading. A tiny film of heading stuck around until the last sip. Very little lacing.

Smell has the slight mocha thing going on. A nice oak and vanilla aroma with very little bourbon notes.

The same goes for the taste nice coffee and chocolate notes, a touch of sweeter toffee, with very little bourbon flavor. Kind of a funky earthy-wood finishing.

Full bodied,decent carbonation. Good balance siding on a bit of the chewy side.

Nothing spectacular here maybe a bit more of bourbon bite would do the trick. Just seemed a little light in that department.

12oz bottle from BeerMeDuffMan (thanks man!). No dicernable bottling information. Served in a goblet.

Pours black with two and a half fingers of pale tan head. The froth lingers before settling to a modest ring that deposits small lace splotches.

Nice inviting aromas of vanilla, bourbon, caramel and brown sugar. May sound simple but there is something about it that keeps me coming back to enjoy.

Tastes smooth and rich. Bourbon, charred oak, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, mildy earthy and a hint of vegital bitterness all wrapped up in some mild alcohol heat.

Creamy, medium feel with soft carbonation. Notes of bourbon, vanilla and chocolate covered caramels make for a sweet, lingering finish.

Bourbon Barrel Insidious is a well made imperial stout. Quite good but lacking a distinction to raise it above the crowded field of competitors. I'd happily have it again if the opportunity arises.

(poured into a balloon)

A: very dark brown liquid... tan, messy suds - fine bubbles mostly, but some fish eyes as well

S: real bold espresso/coffee-cake notes ahead of the pack, but with a just as bold rich, dark chocolate cake right on its trail - just a fantastic 1-2 punch!... fine thread of fruity booze drilling up through the middle... you just know this is gonna be sweet and decadent...

T: strong vinous notes screaming through, pushing the charred silk to the sides... apparent wood notes and tannins in the finish, and perhaps a mild cool mint flavor in the aftertaste... the malt flavors are ground down to wet ash, lacking any curves... marginally sweet - mostly dark, burnt sugars

M: somewhat soft and mellow flow - the body is delicately slick and rubbery... the barrel aging seems to have dried what, on the nose, was measuring up to be a bit thicker and chewier... it just disappears in the finish - which isn't a bad thing - it's a dangerous thing... the booze doesn't get that warm either - more of a dull acidic tang from the dark malts seems to hang on

O: not all that bad!... very American in its lack of depth, but still well done and flavorful enough... I could knock back a couple, but would probably forget what its face looks like the next day

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Alesmith Horny Devil snifter.

A- pours black with a 1 finger dark tan head. Small bubbles and and traces of lacing.

S- bourbon, dark chocolate, vanilla and something else maybe a slight metallic smell?

T- sweet chocolate, dark fruits, bourbon, vanilla and slightly ashy taste.

M- mediums body and carbonation. Slight tingly feel, not real thick or creamy.

O- good BA stout. Mouthfeel is holding this beer back some. Creaminess might add to the flavors.

12oz. bottle with a star and a gear behind it. Wrapped around the star is a deadly coral snake (red meets yellow) with its mouth open and ready to strike. Surrounding this picture is the mandatory US info and a description of the beer. A brewed date or vintage year would have been nice. Served in a Peg's Cantina Snifter.

From behind the snarling coral snake was a beer that was black as coal or as black as the heart of the evil snake on the label. When I held this beer up to the light, all I saw was a reflection of myself in the glass. I even think the mighty sun would have trouble shining through this beer. On top of this barrel aged beauty was a short lived tiny head of foam. I'm pretty sure the color of the foam was dark tan. It didn't bother to stick around. It only managed to leave behind a small handful of rings along the side.

The aroma of this barrel aged Imperial Stout was more sweet than roasted. Kicking off the aroma was some lightly roasted malts. Once it got that out of the way, in comes the slightly sweet aromas of dark chocolate, a pinch of black licorice, roasted coffee beans, a smidgen of toffee, and a few raisins. After the raisins, in comes the charred oak, a drop of bourbon, and a whiff of vanilla.

While the aroma was over the border on the sweet side, the taste was more dry and roasted. Like the aroma though, it was again the dry roasted malt that kicked off things. Right after the malt was the dry roasted coffee beans. Once the taste got dry roasted elements out of the way, the taste then let through dark chocolate, black licorice, some raisins here and there, a pinch of toffee, charred oak, a thimble of bourbon, and a very subtle taste of vanilla at the finish line.

This was a full bodied Imperial Stout with a little carbonation and a dry roasted aftertaste. The aftertaste was chock full of dry roasted malt and coffee, a drop of toffee, dark chocolate, charred oak, and a dab of vanilla and bourbon. This aftertaste will linger on the roof of your mouth for some time.

I would like to thank one of my Philly friends who gave me this beer in a trade. While the aroma liked the sweetness, it was the taste that liked dry roasted flavors. Not my favorite barrel aged Imperial Stout, but its not bad. I heard that its a very affordable barrel aged beer. That's certainly a plus!

On tap at St. James Gate Irish Pub at Sands Bethlehem.
Poured into a tasting glass

A: Pours an opaque black with a tan creamy head that slowly builds

S: Hints of chocolate on the nose with a slight bourbon

T: tastes sweet on the tongue with a dry roasty finish after swallowing. Hint of bourbon lingers

M: Feels smooth and does not have a whole lot of carbonation on the tongue, but does prickle a little bit on the finish. Slight burn from the abv afterward.

Overall: This is a great beer! Dispite the abv I could probably drink quite a few of these. Not a ridiculous overwhelming bourbon flavor like some bourbon stouts have. I am a big fan of bourbon and of stouts, so this beer is right up there on my list!
