From notes:
Served on-tap at the brewery on March 22nd 2014

A - Total black with half a finger of tan colored head, no lacing though.
S - Huge coffee and bourbon, caramel and chocolate roasted malts.
T - Awesome flavor, the coffee and bourbon blend nicely, big roasty chocolate notes in here as well.
M - Silky smooth, a little alcohol burn, not sticky which I anticipated.
O - Extremely balanced, tons of flavor, bourbon comes through perfectly. Best beer Rivertowne has done for sure.

This was definitely a good beer. This bottle has been sitting a little longer than most who have reviewed it so my mark may be slightly off. But having said that, this is a damn good beer. The alcohol is present which I don't mind, but seems a bit harsh for 7.1% but even with the burn it copes well with the beer at hand. Like others have said before me, the barrel is very present in this beer. Roasted malts and vanilla stick out for me in the taste, but it is oak overload in the nose with some chocolate coffee mixed in. Overall this is probably one of my favorite RiverTowne brews to date, making me wonder what else they can barrel up and knock out of the park?

Pours dark brown with a short lived head. Aroma is full of oak, with bourbon notes mimicking vanilla bean and a shy toasty malt gaining as it warms.
In the taste, roast and vanilla, small oak and a hint of booze. Nice malty flavor, fair bitterness and definitely smooth. Overall this is a great, full bodied bourbon barrel aged stout. A nice job here by Rivertowne.
