Pours a deep black with a light tan head that dissipates quickly but still leaves a smidge of lacing. The aroma is malty and sweet, with notes of burnt sugar and dark fruits. The taste has a nice hint of bourbon barrel to augment the overall stout qualities present. Nice mouthfeel and weight to the beer.

This is a very bad example of a barrel aged beer. Flavors are muted under lageresque type corniness in the beer. Not sure what it is, but another poor example of beer making by lost rhino. I should have known not to even give this a try due to the dust covered bottles on the shelf when I bought this.

2014 edition, 22 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a half of a finger of chocolate/caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Strong aromas of roasted malt, imparting notes note freshly baked dark bread, coffee, molasses, caramel and a touch of licorice.

Taste: Very nice. Strong flavors of roasted malt, freshly brewed coffee (without that coffee-like bitterness, thank you), some dark molasses, a touch of cola and some brown sugar-like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Slightly chewy and nicely smooth, as there is practically no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 6.8%, there is just a touch of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a good stout, boarding on very good. Great flavors of malt and some coffee and sweetness. The only hang up I have, and it’s not really a hang up, but a comment, is that the beer is labeled as a barrel-aged stout, bourbon barrel-aged actually, but I don’t get much bourbon flavors or any wood. Still, it’s a very good stout, and had it not been labeled as a bourbon barrel-aged stout, which makes the drinker anticipate certain flavors that this beer lacks, I would have rated it much higher than I have.

This beer is simply fantastic. Poured from a growler.

So sessionable it's ridiculous , at the same time packing tons of flavor.

it's like a mix of Left Hand Milk Stout, and Fonders Breakfast Stout.

Love this beer.

I did have one batch were it was very hoppy, the second was far less. Maybe it was really fresh. Either way defiantly worth a try (:

Served in a snifter from a 22 oz bottle, very nice balance of the woody bourbon barrel aged flavor. Had on tap before at the brewery and just as good.

Draft via growler served in an imperial pint glass
A - Dark brown to black in color with at thick foamy tan head that settles to about 1/4" or less, but remains throughout
S - Oaky with the hint of bourbon, secondary hints of coffee roast
T - Mild malt with dominant woody and burbon flavor that doesn't linger, a very mild bitter aftertaste
F - Pretty smooth, but thin with little carbonation; a subtle dry and bitter aftertaste
O - I enjoy the bourbon barrel aging, but it can easily be overdone and overwhelm the beer flavors. Some I've had taste like someone just poured a shot into a stout This beer seemed to have about the right amount of aging flavor. The barrel aging dominated, but wasn't too much.

Draft pour at Mekong. Dark black mahogany color. Very little head so wondering how old the keg is. Smell roasted coffee and oak with a hint of Tennessee whiskey. Tastes of chocolate with coffee and I want to say rye. Lightly oily in the mouth. Goes down smooth but has an odd after taste. You get a wash back of coffee and roasted malts buried under slight whiskey. I don't taste a strong ABV here. Mild for stout, but it is an English stout. Russians make it almost burn. I'm not a fan of the after taste. I think they used whiskey barrels instead of bourbon barrels. I prefer bourbon.
