Pours inky black in color with deep tan head that held fairly well before fading into a medium collar and wispy head. Aroma is mostly deeply roasted malts, some sweetness either from the bourbon barrels or the honey, oddly indistinct sweetness. I also get some dark fruits in the aroma. Taste is about the same, with some toasted oats coming through. Good full body, silty mouthfeel, and low carbonation.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours pitch black, opaque in the glass with a thin light brown head that dissipates to a ring around the glass, leaving light lacing. Nice aroma of bourbon, dark toasted malt and chocolate. Flavor of toasted, lightly charred malt, cooked caramel, light chocolate and hints of coffee. Finish is roasty, lightly charred with some lingering hop bitterness. Medium to heavy bodied. A well made roasty, hopped imperial stout with an interesting mild caramel candy flavor hidden in the malt. The finish is a bit harsh at first, but mellows out as the glass is emptied. The bourbon is sadly not as prominent in the taste as in the aroma, but adds a little character to the overall dark flavor.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a thin tan head that quickly died down and left patches of bubbles on the surface along with a thin collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark and sweet malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of dark malts and a light amount of sweetness.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has.a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't that difficult to drink considering its strength because it manages to hides its alcohol rather well.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Corked and caged 375mL (12.7oz) bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 11.99. No bottling date. Served in a Three Floyds teku.

Pours cola black with a finger and a half light mocha hued head. Very little retention and very little lace.

Aromas of roast malts, dark cocoa, caramel and barrel. Sweetens nicely as it warms up.

Nice bold, roasty flavors. Bitter dark chocolate, sweet bourbon, roasted malt, burnt caramel, coffee, light vanilla, faint honey and a little booze. A pretty solid blend of flavors that keeps the alcohol in check.

Oily medium thick feel with light carbonation. Bitter cocoa and mild bourbon finish.

A well made and enjoyable stout. Not quite as complex as anticipated and priced just beyond repeat purchase but it was certainly worth the try.

375ml green bottle with cork and cage poured into a gold-rimmed half acre snifter.

Pours a smoky looking black with a big illustrious dark khaki head with great retention and lacing, very nice pour.

Smells of chocolate, charred wood, coffee, tobacco, roasted malts, and toffee.

Taste is bitter and smokey, with some chocolate, a touch of honey sweetness, some toffee, but tastes surprisingly thin and watery throughout. I don't get much bourbon or barrel character.

Mouth is low carbonation and medium bodied, would've preferred a thicker feel. Sticky finish.

Overall, this clocked in at almost $1/oz and for the taste I don't think it's worth the price of admission. Interesting to try this honey bourbon barrel stout, but all three of those notes were not pronounced enough to carry this beer.

Bottle to snifter.

Pours nearly black with amber hues on edges. A healthy fine bubble amber head slowly returned to a frothy rim and slight film. The smell is tons of bourbon and dark roasted malts. This beer is very fragrant and volatile. Im not getting much oak in the nose but oak and tannins certainly come through in the taste. The strong bourbon smell is muted in the taste, giving way to roasted malts and a little coffee and coco. Minor notes of marshmallows, vanilla, and pecans are present. This ale is full bodied with moderate carbonation and low viscosity. Not bad. If you highly enjoy ba stouts then you should try this. I would likely pass next time but I enjoyed this. It doesn't come close to the big boys of ba stouts produced in the states.
