Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

2013 vintage.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, and slight bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, coffee, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness 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 pretty good beer with a slightly better bourbon presence in the flavor.

3.79/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Cola brown with a tan head that streaks some lacing

Smell: Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, molasses and Bourbon

Taste: Surprisingly bitter, up front, which may be the coffee and may be the hop bill; chocolate and molasses tones build but the Bourbon really comes on strong in the middle; the finish was slightly phenolic

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I found the beer rather unbalanced; sometimes beers like this have the flavors blend together - other times they clash; this one was a clasher

Single finger head with excellent lacing on a near jet black/dark brown body. Aroma is a little light with lots of caramel and brown sugar with additional notes true bourbon, a little coffee and milk chocolate. Flavor follows with bourbon, light coffee, roasted malt, and a little chocolate. This one has a great caramel aroma. The coffee is well applied although I want more from the coffee, definitely not over done or too bitter. This is an excellent beer.

Pours with one finger of off white foam on a black body. The head fades quickly and leaves nice lace. Vanilla, whiskey, and herbal, fruity coffee. Smoky coffee and caramel up front with lots of dark chocolate in the finish. A fairly thick body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish. Nicely done, the barrel character is mostly in the aroma, while the flavors profile is full of dark chocolate and coffee. Subtle and well balanced.

lots of oak on this one, more oak then bourbon really in the flavor, a bit sweet, and massive in both body and alcohol. its a strong beer that definitely has the capacity to put you over the edge, so be sure to share it and sip it. the coffee accentuates an already huge dark body of roasted barley and bakers chocolate, while its bitterness doesnt do much to slow down the intensely sweet complexion here. tons of viscosity, this is a thick, syrupy brew that lacks any real carbonation, but it doesnt need it. the coffee is pretty pungent, and works well with all the oak. my second beer from hardywood i liked a little better than my first, but its still a bit of a booze bomb. it smells and tastes hot, and may did i feel this one. to be fair, it wasnt my first beer of the night, not even close, but it just seemed a little less well refined than some of the others out there in the huge barrel stout world. palate coating and a bit sludgy, but well made. this has spent some serious time in the barrel and its a great expression of oak and dark malt, but a little tough to get through.

From 04/27/13 notes. Shared by BigSexy410; thanks Ben.

a - Pours a deep dark mahogany brown color with two inches of thick dark tan head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Looks pretty good.

s - Smells of bourbon, vanilla, light coffee, roasted malts, light bitter chocolates, and some cream. Nose is nice, a tiny bit too sweet I think though.

t - Tastes bourbon, roasted malts, caramel malts, chocolate, toffee, oak, vanilla, cream, and toasted malts. More coffee as it warms up, a step up from the nose.

m - Medium body stout and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink, no real heat for 10.3% ABV. Nice body.

o - Overall a very nice BA American stout. Nice sweet bourbon throughout that works well. Taste is much better than the nose; extra caramel and not as sweet. Worth checking out, would definitely like to have it again.
