Poured thick and dark with a thick tan head. Smell is bourbon, oak, dark roasted malts. Taste follows with the addition of some dark chocolate notes. The bourbon is really well balanced. Nice creamy mouth feel. (210 characters)

16.9 ounce bottle, no date on it that I could find but I believe it's from a recent release a couple months or so ago. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch or so tan head that lingered around a while. There's also a lot of lacing. I like the aroma, it smells like bourbon, wood, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. For the most part I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some dark fruit noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and smooth, and easy to drink. Moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, definitely worth picking up if you come across some! $11.99 a bottle. (640 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look - Oily black body with a tan head. The head is a mixture of thin and thick bubbles. It settles quickly with little lacing.

Smell - Bread. Bourbon. Chocolate. Oak. Sweet. A little maple. Vanilla.

Taste - Smooth. Coffee. Chocolate. Bourbon. Slightly bitter finish.

Feel - More carbonation than other high alcohol barrel aged beers. Full bodied. (353 characters)

Big dark, thick, good legs (not great), and a decent carbonation for 10% +

A lot of vanilla, oak, chocolate, and strong sugars.

Very sweet, a lot of floral notes and hops. Still the beer is chocolate forward with a lot of bourbon character. I'd be interested to see this one with some age. Sadly this isn't an easy to get beer so we'll see if there are others around later.

Mouth feel is good, not overly thick or creamy but well carbonated. Good stuff.

Sure a 12.6 oz pour at nearly a dollar an oz is pretty bad, but I'd still seek one out if you're in the mood,. It's very good for the style and while far too expensive next to the best of the best, small brewery and well I was able to get a bottle unless the comically cheap bourbon county stout. (765 characters)

Aroma is bourbon, oak, tar, roast malt, vanilla deliciousness. Flavor reveals more bourbon, with charred undertones and dark fruit in the finish. There's a peppery flavor in the aftertaste., along with vanilla. (210 characters)

On tap at Madtree tap room, poured into snifter.

Pours black with a thick dark khaki head.
On the nose you get tons of vanilla, oak, espresso, and some mild chocolate.
Bourbon notes are very strong throughout.
The taste is very similar, loads of creamy vanilla on the front of the tongue.
Mid palate you get roasted espresso, turning into bitter chocolate in the back.
Thick full bodied mouthfeel, zero alcohol burn.
This is a very solid barrel aged stout. If your a fan of the style, this will not let you down. (520 characters)

poured about 16oz into snifter from a growler.

A - Dark obsidian with brown highlights around the edge of the glass. Big foamy 2.5 finger head and some of the most beautiful lacing I have seen from a stout. I mean it just coats the glass after I drink it. A thick cap remains for the duration of the session.

S - Mellow bourbon, bitter dark chocolate, rich caramel, vanilla, marshmallow, milk chocolate, earthy hops and some wood.

T - It is quite bitter with a smooth and nice bourbon presence. Plenty of dark bitter chocolate, caramel, vanilla, marshmallow, milk chocolate, earthy hops and some wood.

M - Medium-bodied, silky, perfect carbonation, not very thick but still smooth.

O - This is quite good and the carbonation is about as perfect as any BA stout ever made. Big thank you to Harold for shipping a 32oz growler to me. It was a real pleasure to drink. (871 characters)
