Bourbon? There is bourbon in this? Doesn't taste like it at all. However, the coffee character in it is quite nice. Very consistent and well done. I like this one. Not too many coffee beers I appreciate anymore it seems.

12oz bottle allowed to warm to about 50F then served in a snifter.

A: A very dark ruby-brown that is black in the glass but with reddish highlights at the edges when held up to the light. It starts with about a finger of light khaki head that quickly settles to a ring.

Aroma: Vanilla, roasted malts, light coffee, toasted bread, a little smoke, bourbon barrel and faint chocolate. Aroma is the strong point of this ale.

Flavor: lightly sweet. Bourbon barrel adds some vanilla, toffee, faint wood and, of course, bourbon. Decent aftertaste.

Feel: Carbonation is low but more or less adequate. Body is medium. Smooth but with a very light astringency. Some warming.

Overall: a good ale but only average, at best, for a Bourbon Barrel Stout.

Dark espresso appearance with thin khaki head. Smoky, coffee, Bourbon, molasses and oak notes. Full-bodied and full-flavored.

I doubt this was a excellent stout before aging. Aging seemed decent but average stout. Since I thought it was well below average I am going to try aging it for a year.

Aged In a bourbon barrel or just an oak barrel? The coffee flavor definitely out shines any bourbon flavor. Not bad but not great.

Very thin, with no head. High carbonation, with almost no flavor. Not sure where the bourbon is in this one. Was not a fan.
