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.

From a tasting at the brewry:

Almost opaque black with brown overlones, tan head.

Above average taste, burnt sugar, citrus, vsome bitterness. Benifits from the higher alcohol to balance the malts.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin.

Overall a worth example of the style.

Cask at Pizza Paridiso Dupont. Near black in color, with a slight mahogany hue. Tan head flattens out quickly, but does leave some nice patches of lace.

Roasted malt, with a nice dose of bourbon and wood. Some soft vanilla in the background.

Roasty malt backbone, but not overly deep. Nice woody profile, laced with bourbon. A bit of vanilla comes through, and a hint of dark fruit.

Lighter body, with soft cask carbonation. Only a slight bit of heat. Not a huge stout, but the oak and bourbon lend a nice touch.

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.

On tap at Rustico in Alexandria. Served in a goblet.

Pours near-black with a moderately-sized mocha head and a good bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries a fairly-strong dosing of bourbon plus some nice chocolate and vanilla notes in the background. The flavor focuses a bit too heavily on the bourbon, though the background is nice as well. Medium body with a bit of booze, though more of an overemphasis on the bourbon.

Overall, pretty good and solid for a first barrel-aged attempt. The bourbon just came through too much; perhaps blending some of the base beer back in would have balanced things out a bit.
