3.86/5 rDev -5.4%
bottle aged 8 months
appearance is dark brown almost black. smell is bourbon all in front and the heat is there. vanilla and sweet malt is apparent in the smell. taste is much like the smell. lots of bourbon, vanilla, a little coffee and some toffee notes in there as well. not to complex of a profile (no roasted malt apparent, or dark chocolate flavors). goes down smooth, not a lot of carbonation. Lacing is spotty, but not too prominent. Mouthfeel is smooth, not to bitey or heavy. Good for the style, just looking for more depth and personality. Food pairing should be something rich or sharp. Beemster XO, smoked bbq, southern food will go well here, such as gumbo, cajun spices and cracklings. Pecan desserts and spiceful sweets such as carrot cake or sock-it-to me cake (upside down pineapple cake).

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.
Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, vanilla, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice barrel aging treatment that works well with the base beer.

A- Dark brown nutty, medium lacing minimal legs
S- Malty more than barrel. Charred dark fruit, molasses
T- Creamy into toasted malty flavor. Barrel is barely present.
M- Medium build with little carb
O- This would be a good BA stout to get someone into BA stouts

A: Pours black with a tightly bubbled 1/2 finger light brown head. Leaves some light sheets of lace down the glass with each sip.
S: Holy barrel! Tons of spicy bourbon and oak on the nose. The oak is really, really intense here, pushing big spice notes out at you. Underneath, there are some notes of cocoa powder, dark chocolate and some light dark cherry notes.
T: Again, holy moly. TONS of oak here. Woody as hell with a big and slightly boozy kick of bourbon that will put some hair on your chest. Middle has some dark chocolate and dry baking chocolate notes with a touch of anise. Finish brings dry bourbon, a bit of booze, and dark chocolate. This is really good stuff.
