22oz bottle opened on 3-1-12. I believe it to be the 2010 batch.

A - Pours a dark brown with a very dark tan-brown, one finger head. Good retention.

S - Boozy bourbon with a slight sweet, almost orange scent.

T - More chocolately with a nice boozy-sweet finish.

D - Good carbonation, with a medium body.

O - Very nice, the honey makes it more sweet, but the bourbon saves it.

Shared graciously at a recent tasting

A: Motor oil black pour with about a finger of brown head. Great retention, however only minimal lacing.

S: Rich, roasty aroma. Big notes of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, wood, and enough honey to balance, but not to disjoint the beer. Really a wonderful scent.

T: The taste features booze throughout, but the chocolate and roast really come up big to balance it out. Bourbon and vanilla lend beautiful notes. Just the perfect example of a Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout.

MF: Heavy, creamy body with lower than average carbonation. Warming alcohol feeling graces the backend.

O: This was delicious. It beat out all of the 50/50 Eclipse variants we tried earlier in the evening. Drink this if you can get your hands on it!

Vintage 2011. Missed the release of this one last year, but I was able to score a bottle from an in-person trade at the SC release this year. Bottle split and shared with fellow BA, ClarkPinnock. Poured my allotment into an Allagash chalice.

Pours a deep rich black. A luscious inch-thick tan head rests atop. Lace cascades down the glass edge after each sip. Pretty beer. The aroma on this one is superb. Big oaky vanilla notes, faint astringent ethanol, roasted malts. Really rich and pleasing.

The body is silky smooth, but deep. Carbonation gives a little spritz, but it still mellows out on the palate. Vanilla sweetness greets me at first sip. Smooth bourbon character with mild wet woody finish. Chocolate roast noted, but this gets edged out by more bourbon and oak. Sweet aftertaste. This was really good and actually surprised me. A really good BB-Stout that I will now make the effort to acquire at the release each year.

Bottle provided by cuzco at a recent tasting; 2011 version.

Pours a very dark, velvety brown color with a nice creamy textured inch of khaki head which leaves just a lacing as it recedes.

Aromas begin with boozy bourbon barrel and associated bourbon smells, vanilla and toffee predominantly. Also the traditional stout smells; roasty dark chocolate and bitter coffee presence as well.

The tastes follow the nose but in opposite fashion. The Imperial Stout flavors begin with roasted maltiness, dark bitter cocoa and light espresso. Then you get the solid kick from the Pappy barrels; vanilla and toffee once again. Booziness is definitely evident in the finish (which was mellowed and non-existent in the 2009 bottle I sampled side by side).

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonated. Finish is a nice balance of roasty malts and sweet barrel. Not offensive or boozy at all; quite mellowed actually.

Overall this was a solid beer which I was happy to sample. A really well made barrel aged Imperial Stout which will definitely improve with some age on it, a bit brash for my liking at the moment. Glad I was fortunate to sample it, but not a MUST have for me going forward.

Shared a 2011 vintage with two friends at a recent tasting.

Poured into a bells snifter. Body was dark black with a semi transparent hue. The brew foamed up a medium tan head which left nice lacing.

Hints of espresso, dark chocolate, vanilla, and nice oaky burbon came through on the nose.

Mouthfeel was lighter than I was antIcipating but still enjoyed tremendously. Lots of vanilla and bourbon notes shined through the heavy roast.

Overall a good but not great beer.

Bottle shared with steepH20 during a leisurely and long overdue day of celebrating the birth of his son. Cheers to Chris and Ben (and Katie :)!

2010 edition

Pours a very dark brown with a nice puff that settles to near stillness

Sweetness of the honey reaches up from the glass as it mingles with the tangy bourbon. A light smokiness pokes through along with a faint heat and the dry chocolate nibs.

This is different. At its base, there's a smooth, rounded, slightly light bodied bourbon stout. At around mid palate however, there's a sharp honey spike that washes over the beer and leaves a very sweet but also pungent bitterness along the back end. The finish is where the nibs play center stage.

I believe that the honey may be used to beef up the body, which this beer could use. However, cutting the honey might also pull away from some of the distraction that the honey imparts. Hmmm....quite the conundrum...or not.

Overall, a pretty good beer and one that I'm happy to have been able to share.

Enjoyed at a bottle share.
Pours a deep black with about an inch of thick, dark brown head.
The aroma is rich with chocolate, honey, dark fruit, and a little bourbon.
Very tasty, great chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla, the bourbon is present but not hot and plays really nicely with the chocolate.
The feel was super smooth with a pretty full body and light carbonation that finished smooth coating the mouth leaving a nice reminder of the awesome beer just sipped.
Overall a fantastic stout. Defiantly worth seeking out.

Bottle 233

Pours jet black with no penetrable light. A creamy half inch mocha colored head fades into a rich top leaving a thick layer of lace in its wake.

Aromas in this seem a little tight and restrained. Hints of bourbon, cardboard, cocoa, dark chocolate, burnt caramel, honey, black fruits, light vanilla, toasted coconut and wood.

Wow the taste on the other hand is phenomenal. Rich layers of cocoa, fudge and dark chocolate, Nice dollop of honey. Black fruit, burnt caramel, earthy hops, light bourbon, toasted oak and vanilla. Finish is short and semi sweet. A hint of leather and asphalt. Hot on the finish in the back of the throat and chest. Mouth is a bit thin and medium bodied. However this complex beast isn't hurt too badly by it. Years to go on this one.

After sampling the van pappy dark lord just prior to trying this beer, it was perhaps to be expected that this would be something of a let down.

Sampled at the epic finewinemike event.

The beer pours a dark brown color, with good head retention and lacing. The nose is impressive in this beer, albeit a bit boozy. Still, I otherwise pick up considerable chocolate, prunes and vanilla, that in combination is quite attrative. Given the aroma profile, I have to say I was all the more disappoitned by what I got on the palate. The beer was a thin and fairly dry, and seemed to be dominated by licorice and light coffee. Also, I picked up some noticeable heat on the finish, which further detracted from the flavor profile. Mouthfeel otherwise was medium bodied at most, with an adequate at best finish.

Maybe I would have liked this beer more if I had tried it at the outset of the tasting, but the fact remains that this was probably the least impressive beer I sampled at the tasting. Along with CBS and the 2010 Kate the Great, this was one of the few beers that disappointed at this tasting event.

Bomber poured into a tulip
Thanks to thagr81us for the bottle--- hope you are doing better

A-- Poured black. Just slight bits of red tint at the top of the beer. One finger light brown head that quickly fell to film and then disappeared. Just a small bit of lacking.

S-- Good nose. Bourbon, oak, Carmel, Vanilla, Chocolate and some earthy hops. Really nice staying power of the nose. Maybe best part of this beer.

T-- Bourbon, Vanilla, Chocolate and more earthy hops. Good taste to this.

M-- Slick and oily. Body is a bit thin but quite good. Not as good as taste and nose are. Spot on carbonation and feel to this. Really felt the barrel added a lot to the base beer.

O-- Not as good as BCS rare but a good substitute. Well hidden alcohol and a lot of flavor to this. Only real failing is the body, as a bit thin I thought. Still a good BA beer and if can not get BCS Rare a very good substitute with the PVW barrel.

22oz bomber into a snifter - 2011 Vintage

A: Pours almost completely black with a nice brown head that fades to a ring and leaves some good lacing on the glass.

S: The nose is really something. Big aromas of cocoa, molasses, vanilla, and a small earthy hop aroma on the back end. It smells pretty complex and very unique compared to most barrel aged stouts.

T: The taste is opposite of the nose. It starts with a lot of earthy flavors including dark roasted/burnt malt and hops along with some great molasses and chocolate flavors.

M: The feel is creamy and full bodied...very nice.

O: A good beer with an interesting nose and nice flavors. It's actually pretty close to the Nebraska brew I had last night but a bit more complex.

Reviewed from notes.

Bottle shared by Stoutfest.

This is a dark beer-- it has some red hints in it, but for the most part, it looks black or maybe deep brown-- like molasses in color. Doesn't look as thick as I'd hope, but it isn't thin or watery looking either. Decent retention and some nice lacing, but not super-impressive-- just a good looking beer.

Toasted brown sugar, molasses, a hint of anise, some caramel malt, and some burnt toffee come through on the nose.
The taste starts out kinda sweet but turns more dry with a bit of anise sneaking in there. Little bourbon-like booziness towards the finish.

Feel isn't bad, but it could with a hair more carbonation. Feels thick and oily.

Overall--- pretty decent. To be honest, this is another of those beers where the hype doesn't match up to the performance. It's ok, but for my money, I'd be happier with plenty of beers off the shelf over this one.

Served from a 22 oz. bombe bottle into a snifter. Part of the very generous Pre-Thanksgiving Tasting Session offered by fellow BA CosmicEvan.

Appears a super-dark brown. A tiny rim of foam with small bubbles settles in a round the rim.

The smell of bourbon comes through here big time!There's a definite "sting" to the nose from it, balanced by a touch of licorice.

The taste is surprisingly bitter. I'm a little surprised by the hop profile coming through in such a dark beer.

The mouthfeel is marked by the accompanying booze burn. Soon after, though, it becomes pretty clean for the middle and "outro."

Overall a good good beer but I think it might need to sit for awhile longer for some of its bourbon to mellow out and blend in more. It's still rather "warm."

650 mL bottle thanks to lanamj. This one was poured into my Southampton RIS snifter.

Olde Rabbit's Foot pours a standard stout black. There's about a finger and half of head, a very solid showing in this glass. Head retention is pretty good, but lacing is firmly planted on the spotty side of the fence. The nose is nicely chocolaty. It's not as much of a chocolate bomb as Goose Island's Big John, but it's up there. There's also a bit of bourbon, as well as a straight booziness that's just a little to intense for my liking. Semi sweet milk chocolate is the centerpiece of the flavor profile as well, no doubt highlighted thanks to the vanilla flavors picked up from the barrel aging. The booziness has died down a bit, but the subtle bourbon flavor definitely remains. So far so good, but all that is tarnished by a brassy dose of what tastes like earthy European hops. It's a bit out of place, and doesn't really jive with the rest of the picture this beer's painting. The mouthfeel's alright, but nothing special. I'd say it's a little thin and a little bubbly (emphasis on little on both counts), and that keeps it from being great. I love the spirit of camaraderie that Olde Rabbit's Foot represents, and I've either enjoyed beers from, or heard good things about all three breweries involved. That said, the end result here is a somewhat ho-hum barrel aged imperial stout.

Pours black with a mocha head and a nice collar around the glass.

Smells like chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, brown sugar, and molasses.

Taste opens with the bourbon and chocolate flavor, moving into a tobacco and brown sugar flavor. Its very sweet, but the oak helps to dry it out with a warming alcohol bite. This is a delightful stout.

Mouthfeel is a little thin, but the carbonation is spot on.

Overall, its really really good. Not sure to age the other bottle...

Poured into my Jackie O's snifter. Shared with Rhettroactive and IrishColonial.

A: Pours a deep, dark, impenetrable black. A gorgeous finger and a half of dark brown head rises up from the brew. Two coats of lacing cover my glass. As the beer sits, the head reduces to a half finger and lightens to a cream color. A quick swirl brings the head back to a full finger and dark brown again. This looks freakin' great.

S: Oh wow does this smell amazing. Dark chocolate, light coffee roast, and sweet, vanilla-y bourbon barrels. Loads of dark fruit linger in the background, just a hint of raisin. This is barleywine-esque, and a close comparison to Bourbon County Rare. What a great smelling beer.

T: Milk chocolate and roasted coffee stand out immediately, washing over the front and exploding on the mid. The vanilla and coconut from the bourbon barrels assert themselves quickly. The bourbon is not overwhelming, but augments the chocolate, dark fruit, and coffee flavors with a vanilla creaminess. Absolutely fantastic.

M: Good. Carbonation is appropriately thin, just enough to balance everything. Finish is just a touch on the watery side, but that's an easy feat considering the wonders of the body of this beer. Very good.

O: This is a fantastic beer, and I'm glad to have shared it with some close friends. It has a strong dark fruit and chocolate presence, which the bourbon barrels complement damn near perfectly. Near perfectly blended and balanced, ORF is quite an achievement. Nothing dominates, but everything is well thought out and augments the overall taste of this fine brew. Great great great job, NC breweries!

From 22oz bomber to Jackie O's tulip glass on 10/10/11
*From notes

-- Thanks be to John (or was it Eric?) --

Vintage 2011

A: Dark. Really dark. A solid pour yields a 1.25 finger head with decent retention. Moderate lacing follows.

S: Love the nose. The best bourbon on the market has saturated this beer, and it shows. There's some dark vine fruit here too, but without question the PvW takes the cake here.

T: Creamy vanilla up front, followed by dark fruits, warm honey and charred malt. The bourbon is all over this, yet what really sticks out is that damn honey. This is a sweeter stout then I typically enjoy, yet the bourbon really helps to keep me happy. The only other knack here is that once it's down the gullet, it just doesn't leave much of a lasting impression on my palate.

M: This feels really nice. I can't say it's mind blowingly textured or creamy, but it's certainly well above average.

O: Olde Hickory/Duck-Rabbit/Foothill's collaboration Olde Rabbit's Foot is a really nice bottle of beer. Unlike Foothill's BA Sexual Chocolate (aged in the same barrels), the base here doesn't lay down and take it from Pappy nearly as much, as the honey addition really changes the game. In my humble opinion, I prefered the PvW dominated BA Sexy Choc, as it cuts down on the residual sugar, and catered a bit more to my palate.

My 300th Review!

22oz bottle into a Goblet glass served at fridge temp

2011 Release

A- Pours a opaque black that doesn't allow any light through it no matter what. On top of the black body is a small 1 finger khaki head that dissipates fairly quickly. Not much retention but some really sexy legs on the side of the glass.

S- Deep dark roastiness up front with hints of sweet chocolate, nuts, caramel or toffee, musty oak, vanilla, and tons of old Bourbon. Could live in this glass.

T- Wow Super complex. The sweet dark chocolate hits the front of the tongue with hints of creamy caramel malts and tobacco. When it crosses the middle of the tongue the strong bourbon flavors and barrel quality's come through with musty oak and vanilla that coat the throat. But the finish is where it shines with bitter coffee and a slight smoke or char. Definitely a nice boozy finish but not over powering for sure, The alcohol creates a nice flavor and fullness in the body.

M- Full bodied with moderate carbonation and a nice bitter full finish.

Overall I have to say having had a lot of bourbon aged beers the Pappy Van Winkle really comes through creating one hell of a unique flavor as well as one strong flavor that shines through perfectly.

2011 vintage poured into a Jackie Os snifter. Had this at the release this year on tap and was anxious to see if it was as good in the bottle.

Pours a deep dark chestnut brown. Almost no head at all, but it leaves pretty good alcohol legs on the glass. Smell on this one is great. Nice bourbon notes right up front with vanilla, oak, and a toffee sweetness there as well. Slight whiffs of heat from the alcohol. Taste is also as good as I remember from being on tap. As this beer is still very new and fresh the bourbon is really prominent. If you like bourbon forward stouts like Goose Island Bourbon County then you will like this fresh. Lots of vanilla, tobacco, and chocolate, but also a sweet note to smooth it out that I presume is from the honey. It really makes for a great caramel accent on the back end. The carbonation on this one is solid and makes for a smooth drinking experience even though the heat from the alcohol is present.

This is a really top notch BA stout. I can't wait to have this a year or two from now to see how it changes. Highly Recommended!!

Big thanks to Deuane for bringing this one to our Stout Day party. This is a 2010 bottle.

A - Pours jet black with a one finger tall tan head leaving small streaks of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of rich bourbon, vanilla, bakers chocolate, dark roasted malt, and a definite dulled twang at the end of each sniff. Not bad but not great either.

T - Starts off with a big dose of sweet vanilla quickly giving way to a big shot of bourbon, sweet chocolate, and the ever present dark roast. The little twang from the nose is present here as well but it hasn't got any stronger, almost sherry like. The finish is a mix of light bourbon heat and sweet dark roast, lingering on the pallet for some time.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Slightly thin, roasty, feel that really doesn't do this beer justice.

O - I liked this one. The flavors are all there for it to be great but it never really got to that level. I will definitely revisit this one in the future.

From 9/22/11 notes.

morimoto makes it happen again! Thanks, I've been eying this bottle since our last trade....ha, not too long I suppose. 2011 vintage poured into a DFH goblet.

A - Light passes through during pour; no light escapes once it is in the glass. Looks nice, 1/2" head lowers to about 1/4" after time and remains nicely. Sticks a little bit to the side of the glass, but could improve. Looks like an above average RIS.

S - Not too strong once poured. However, when I move in and get close, the aroma is pretty nice. Light bourbon. Tad bit of oak, vanilla, then what I'm finding to be either a toffee or caramel in there. Really nice, somewhat light though. If it were stronger, I'd be blown away.

T - Wow. Toffee, smooth charred oak, vanilla, then more toffee. Oak lingers after the vanilla/toffee eventually subside beyond each sip. This is great. Smooth, balanced. Sweetness seems to mix well with the toffee/vanilla. Maybe that's the honey? Once it is on your tongue, the bourbon is evident in the future tastes. The toffee flavor is really coming into play for me through the entire bottle. There is a little bit of booze and oak in the finish that could improve. Bourbon is pretty evident in this brew.

M - Lighter side of medium, but smooth. It isn't as thick as I'd prefer, but the body goes well with the beer and carries the flavor quite a bit.

O - Really a nice brew. Great bourbon flavors, balanced, drinkable for a BA RIS. I really enjoyed the vanilla/toffee/caramel going on in this one that I was picking up on. For me, those flavors helped make up for the lack in strong appearance/aroma/mouthfeel. Thanks again morimoto and feel free to send me more of this if you run out of stuff to do.

Live review of a 2011 22 oz bottle thanks to a generous trader.
A: Opaque black, thin tan head with some lacing.
S: Nice caramel bourbon character, dark chocolate liqueur, Irish cream-like character.
T: Interesting. Raisin and whiskey with some vanilla. Bitter chocolate chips. Sticky sweet chocolate far in background with an earthy finish... interesting tannins and strawberry character.
M: Medium to lighter body, creamy character, ends relatively clean with just a mild linger.
O: Pretty good. Probably too hot at the moment, but it shows a lot of potential.

2011 release-

Poured from the bomber into my Duvel glass

A: Pitch black in the glass with beautiful lacing from a very strong pour that still only yields a very small, coffee brown head. Leaves behind some mild lacing as the head recedes to a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Naturally, bourbon barrels and booze are at the forefront but are equally complimented by thick toffee and chocolate notes.
T: Toffee and coffee flavors emerge after a bit of a bite from the carbonation followed by chocolate and finish that warms as it goes down, no way to hide the 10% on this beast. The barrel treatment has done this beer well and it shows with some hints of wood and vanilla in the middle of each sip.
M: A little thinner than i expected and more carbonated that i expected but it goes down smooth.
O: Overall a very tasty barrel aged stout that i will not be disappointed to drink 22oz bottle of.

Thanks Steve for sharing this one with me -

Poured from bottle into my Duvel tulip - 2010 bottle

A: Pours as dark as dragons blood with a one finger head that descends into a thin frothy lacing, decent carbonation.

S:Bourbon, molasses , anise, chocolate, roasted malt.

T: Molasses,bourbon ,slight anise, chocolate, roasted malts and barley, dark fruit hints , slight coffee, vanilla hues as well.

This was one of the most complex tasting American Double / Imperial Stout that I have had to date, it's flavors were all over the place and yet they melded together to make an impressive beer, I enjoyed every sip of this beast and if given the chance I would drink this every day - as it warms it seems a new flavor pops up .. Thanks again Steve - what a great beer.
