A: This poured an opaque black mahogany with a little tan head.
S: It smelled like fresh oak and sweet chocolate and roasted coffee, with some brown sugar and a little toasted coconut and vanilla.
T: It tasted like sweet milk chocolate and fresh oak, with some roasted coffee and brown sugar, and a little vanilla and toasted coconut. It had a sweet and clean aftertaste.
M: It was oily with moderate carbonation. Nice slick body.
D: This was not very strong on the bourbon, but it had lots of oak character. A tasty stout with very nice body and well hidden alcohol. Smooth finish so very easy to drink and enjoy. Maybe best fresh, but it could probably age too. Recommended.

Serving type: growler

On tap at Lost Rhino.

Pours near black with a dark tan, thick head that produces ample lacing. Flavor and nose are both a little too one note relying too heavily on bourbon but given the ABV this is never overly boozy. Some roast malt, molasses and brown sugar from the base stout hide behind the bourbon, but this is mostly vanilla and barrel heavy. Body is medium thin with light carbonation and a silky finish. Needs some work, but recommended if you see this on draft.

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.

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.

Has all the makings of a GREAT bourbon barrel stout - just a little more watered down than I would like. Sweet, malty, everpresent vanilla - delicious! This sort of beer could form a fantastic foundation for variants ... coffee nibs perhaps? Congrats to Lost Rhino for creating a wonderful product!!

4.28/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Very dark brown, almost pitch black. When held to the light in the 4 oz tasting glass, it looks more like a doppio espresso shot than anything else. Moderate tan colored head. No visible sediment or haze.

S: Has all of the scent elements of a good bourbon-barrel aged imperial stout (eg. coffee, vanilla, oak, hints of chocolate, caramel, molasses, etc.) but they are all somewhat muted. Hard to tell if it's partially due to the smallish glass or the temperature of the stout.

T: Coffee, molasses, milk chocolate, oak, caramel, and vanilla. Slightly medicinal elements mid-taste, but the initial taste and aftertaste are both very good.

M: Very nice, especially for a non-imperial stout. It's rich, thick, silky smooth and very moderately carbonated. Pretty much spot-on.

O: I have no idea why there aren't more positive reviews of this beer. It's a delicious bourbon-barrel aged stout with all the character of an BB-aged imperial stout but with the ABV of a regular stout. Win-win.

Serving type: on-tap
