This is the 6/25/13 variation of the beer. Black in color and nearly entirely impenetrable to light. A fingernail of khaki colored head almost entirely. Brussels lacing. Aroma of sweet bourbon is dominant,but there is also plenty of dark malt. The taste is sweet bourbon giving way to more dark malt. There isn't much going on at the back of the palate or the fade. The mouth is thick and chewy.

Pouring into my 10 Barrel Brewing snifter, it is a little frothy. ( maybe I jostled it?)

Pretty dark brownish-black collar, head is calming down after a minute, and is fluffy and tan, looks inviting.

I get a bit of the whiskey barrel in the nose after a solid swirling , but not much until it is swirled.

Very drinkable, nice little whiskey sweetness, no bitterness in the aftertaste.

Yeah this is not too bad, a nice little barrel - aged beer, I like that no bitter flavors are present, sometimes you get that a bit in these, overall it was nice to try, I think it was around $10, so not a bad deal, but prolly not gonna seek out another, like I would with some of the other real popular barrel stouts.

Great beer I just tried the 6/25/13 edition of this beer. It is the same beer basically, it is their barrel aged program. They put the date on it each year they brew it. Great chocolate smell, roasty flavor, whiskey aroma and flavor compliment the stout.

My first beer from these guys

Pours mahogany with 2 fingers of caramel colored head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Bourbon, vanilla, some dark fruit

T: Bourbon notes, oaky dryness & a touch of caramel. Some charcoal notes along with carob & dark chocolate as this warms, some plummyness. Finishes dry, with chocolate sweetness & boozey warmth

MF: Chewy, boozey & low carbonation

A decent RIS, not a great take on this style, but worthy of a go
