A - pours with one finger of tan foam on a black body. Head fades quickly and leaves little lace.

S - coffee, chocolate, licorice, and a bit if rummy molasses and vanilla.

T - lots of sweet caramel and chocolate up front. Some spicy notes of licorice and cinnamon in the middle. Finishes with whiskey characteristics of vanilla, and oak with smoky coffee that lingers on the palate.

M - am oily, moderately thick body, moderately low carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - sweet, thick, and complex, a very nice barrel aged stout.

Shared by GT. Thanks bro. The beer is dark brown with a thin beige collar. The aroma is fabulous! Bourbon and roast. Huge oak bourbon presence. The flavor is great as well. So easy to drink. Abv hidden very well. Medium bodied and smooth. What a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huge thanks to dsauter for sending this extra beer! Thanks Danny!

2012 vintage; purple waxed bomber poured into tulip glass.

reviewed from noted 4/5/2013.

Appearance: black bodied beer with 1 finger of tan colored head. Head drops down to thin cap.

Smell: Chocolate and oak. Cinnamon and bourbon. Black licorice.

Taste: Hint of bourbon sweetness upfront. Chocolately. Mild char and smoke notes. Mild oak and a hint of fruity yeast and dark fruit notes.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low end of moderate carbonation. Really smooth. drinks its ABV. No booziness or heat noted from the ABV. So drinkable for a barrel aged stout.

Overall: This is a really great beer from Intuition Ale Works. I was really impressed with the king street stout and I believe this is the barrel aged version of king street stout. Love how smooth this beer is. Flavorful, balanced, complex beer; great beer from florida!

Shared at the Swamp Head Batch 600 release. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Pours pitch black with a small khaki head. Aroma of big roast, oak, chocolate. Flavor follows with some chocolate notes that sweeten up a beautiful medley of roasted malts and oaky barrel. There is some light bourbon sweetness here but it’s not a big, in your face bourbon. Body is thick, especially for only 8%, with medium carbonation. This was really good. Hope to try this again.

On tap at release

Ap - Jet black body, thin khaki ring that leaves no lace.

Ar - Oak, deep chocolate, a slight metallic hint.

T - Chocolate, vanilla, oak, some bourbon-y notes as it warms.

M - Medium to full bodied, slight alcohol dryness, still retaining a slick profile.

O - Very good chocolate/vanilla stout. Oak isn't as prevalent as I'd hoped. Wonder what some time will do..

Recieved in a stouts BIF, thanks Beernads! Poured into a CCB snifter, jet black with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is chocolate, oak, light bourbon, coffee. Taste like it smells, with bourbon and oak coming through. Drinks very smooth for such a high ABV brew. Great beer! It is very well balanced, would love to try more from this brewery.
