look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.75

look: dark, but nothing notable
smell: best part about it
taste: the Wild Turkey (is there a worse bourbon?) overpowers any other flavors that may have been present..makes it a vile concoction that ruins your palate.
feel: like sitting in the woods knocking back some bad hooch just to get drunk when you were a teenager.

overall: There are just way too many bourbon barrel aged beers to waste your time on this one. If this is your first and you like it, all the others are better.

Don't know what to say, maybe I had a bad one - not stouty at all.

More black IPA than stout.

Not bubby to look at but had a light carbonated mouthfeel.

Caramel bourbon smell.

Edge of head no webbing.

Found to be quite gassy.

I had a Clown Shoes Blaecorn Unidragon before, which may affect this review.

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 7.99. No apparent bottling date. Served in a Founders snifter.

Pours dark brown with one and a half fingers khaki head that leaves a little lace.

Smells of sweet bourbon, coconut, cocoa and brown sugar.

Taste is sweet vanilla, cocoa, faint bourbon, caramel, coconut, brown sugar and a lottle caramel. Just hints of the flavors without much oomph.

Light body. Light carbonation. Mild sweet bourbony finish.

Interesting but lacking depth. Thin and lackluster. Seems like they barreled a beer that wasn't quite up to the task. There are plenty of other far better barrel aged stouts available for the money.

On tap at ACBF 6/1/2013 Solid black color smallish tan head. Aromas of bourbon in spades with hints of roasty coffee underneath. Thin coffee like liquid assaulted with too much bourbon. Thin body with a watery mouthfeel. This doesn’t have enough body to stand up to the thinning effects of the overuse of bourbon here.
