Best before Oct 2015.
thin head (so what?). nose isn't the best.
sweet finish , but alcohol is hidden. if you want a chocolate-first imp stout with a hint of the barrel and little bourbon, this is a great beer.
it doesn't have the weight that one may want from an imp stout, but i still like it a hell of a lot more than some of the other reviewers.
zero alcohol heat.
would drank again

The bourbon barrel aged Dark Hollow was a solid offering from Blue Mountain. It poured an opaque dark with rich tan head that did not lace. The scent had roast and hints of bourbon. The taste followed the scent quite closely. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this was a very good beer.

Pours a light-denying dark brown/black with a deep tan head and sticky, thick lacing. Aroma is of light bourbon and oak. Taste is magnificent, with light tones of bourbon, oak, bittersweet malt, roasted coffee and a tinge of alcohol (10% ABV). Feels good going down and the bourbon flavor is just enough not to take away from the fine taste of this stout. One of the best brews I have had from Blue Mountain Brewery. They knocked it out of the park with this one !!!

On draft at Sine Irish Pub in Richmond.
Updates:
7-23-16 - Big bottle on my deck. Poured into a short tulip rather than my aluminum pint. Oh so good, even though cork was Aug '15. One of my favorites from these folks.
9-9-15 - Purchased a 10/16 corked bottle direct from the Arrington site. Uncorked it that night after getting word that Thursday Lockn' shows were cancelled. Poured super black with little head. Nice barrel aged stout. If I had the patience, I would love a one year old bottle.
9-10-15 - Lockn' shows on Thursday cancelled, so our first adventure stop was the Barrel House in Arrington. Super fun time meeting new folks and drinking Dark Hallow right from the teet! Get some of this. I love it.

Nicely balanced big stout. Had this one a few months age on it. Highly recommend.
