A rather dark, dark brown - straight black coffee color. Gorgeous thick, foamy, khaki head that sticks around for awhile. The nose is subtle but dark chocolate, Belgian yeast, light bourbon and oak, some dark fruits and as it warms I am picking up on the coconut. The taste is wonderful - much lighter on the bourbon character than other BA'ed beer, which was great - not overdone, but added subtlety to an already favorite of mine - sweet dark malts, dark and milk chocolates and Belgian peppery and spicy yeast but with an added layer of bourbon, oak and burnt sugars. Really enjoyed this. I found the mouth-feel was a little richer and smoother than the light body of the regular Black. All in all really wonderful and thankful to have stumbled across this.

Got at growler station at Perfect Pour. Pour into New Belguim globe

A-This one poured a very dark opaque brown color. There was just a bit of a tan head that doesn’t linger long or leave much lacing.

S-The aroma has oak bourbon bready, chocolate, roastiness, some coconut

T-The taste is very good. The bourbon flavor is more subdued than some other bourbon barrel aged beers that I’ve had. Chocolate, some roastiness.

M-The mouthfeel medium full body and medium carbonation.

O-Great bourbon Belgium stout by Allagash
