12.7 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a Jackie O's snifter

This beer pours black and is topped with a skim of mocha head that leaves no lacing.

The smell is dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and alcohol.

The taste is caramel and vanilla from the bourbon. I also get chocolate and sweet maple notes.

Viscous, thick mouthfeel with low carbonation

This is an amazing beer. It hits all the right notes for me. This is the only JO beer that I have broken the bank and bought a case of in the past.

Bourbon Barrel Black Maple pours a very deep brown and sports a light brown head of foam. The head dissipates fairly quickly. The beer smells quite good - it's certainly sweet, per the nose, but also has a bit of booziness.

While cold, the beer has a slightly dry mouth feel. The barrel is definitely present. It is, per the smell, very sweet. The maple somehow fails to be all that present in the taste.

As the beer warms, it just gets sweeter. It has a nice bit of heat to it, but the alcohol isn't present in the taste.

As with CBS - I'd expected more of this beer. I like maple, in general and as an adjunct, so the last few maple beers have let me down a bit. Great Notion's Double Stack has been the only one to really impress me thus far. Wish it was easier to get!

Poured from a 12.7 oz bottle into a Jackie O's tulip glass. Acquired in a trade. 2015 bottle.

Pours a deep brown, nearly black body with a two finger brown head that reduces slowly to leave a ring of foam and little lacing.

Aromas are heavy on the bourbon, cocoa and light vanilla, dark- bittersweet chocolate, lightly roasty with coffee aromas. Not getting much maple on the aroma.

On the tongue is dark chocolate and bourbon, roasty malt, marshmallow, caramel, sweet vanilla, chocolate cookies. A slight oxidized off flavor included. Mouthfeel is kinda thin with medium-low carbonation.

Overall decent. For a bourbon barrel aged stout, this is on point, but I didn't get any maple whatsoever in the taste or aromas, so I have to give it a 3.75 final rating because it wasn't as advertised.

From the shorty bottle from the brewery in a snifter. This beastly little brew pours a rich
opaque with a nice head of dark brown foam that settles to a thick ring , a thin pool,
and shows some nice light lacing. Nose of boozy bourbon, subtle vanilla, mild oak, light
char touched marshmallow, sweet dark maple, and rich malts. Flavors nail it out of the park
with rich toasted nutty malts dancing about maple and deep brown sugars that have become
drunken on boozy bourbon. Mild vanilla and more assertive oak give richness without being overly
cloying to a lightly char touched marshmallow and dark rich cocoa that has a subtle coffee note on
the back that has of course gotten drunk on bourbon as well. Fantastic mouth feel; full lightly slick
body, low carbonation, and a rich boozy finish laced with more flavor than there is characters on a
keyboard. Exceptional.

Cheers
