Bottle from Half-time/BA for EBF 2021.Pours black with a finger of foamy medium tan head, nice lacing, smell is sticky toffee cake, maple syrup, bourbon, molasses, burnt caramel, and fudge, taste is roasted malts, maple syrup, bourbon, chocolate milk, and a nice coffee and milk chocolate finish, feel is light to medium bodied, light carbonation. A pungent, roasty, enigma, love the low ABV on a barrel aged stout, still packs a punch of flavor with a quaffable mouthfeel, super delicious indeed.

Dark brown with modest tan head. It's aroma is Maple & whisky. Interestingly, the whisky barrels used are filled maple syrup, then beer, then whisky again to produce 3 different types of whisky & this beer. Sweet with some mild bitterness. Plenty of roasted malt flavors, maple goodness, fudge & whiskey. Its scent & taste imply a much higher ABV than 7.5. Thick & silky smooth. It is very appropriately named, Super Delicious Stout.

Medium black pour with a finger of light brown foam. Smells like stouts of old: classic dark malt, chocolate sauce with maple and bourbon. Taste is sweeter than nose revealed, maple and chocolate run away with it before the bourbon and vanillin laden oak capture, brownie and light roasted malt result. Feel is medium light bodied, smooth, surprisingly cool, barrel impact is significant but short lived, a flash in the pan as it were.

Third beer for 2021 Extreme Beer Fest!

Very nice barrel aged stout!

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Very dark brown color with creamy light brown head and good curtain lacing. Dark berries smell and taste. Licorice and dark roasted malt. Bit of dark chocolate. Pleasant booziness asserts itself as it warms. Very nice stout. My favorite so far of the Fest beers!

Pours dark brown/black with a minimal tan head. Aroma is chocolate and dark berry and whisky and very pleasant. Taste is whisky, maple and roasted malts. Taste is big for the ABV. Feel is creamy but a bit thin for a stout with this flavor but still solid. Overall it's a fantastic stout especially for a 7.5% brew.

Pleasant change from the barrel aged 11+% genre. Pleasant aroma is whisky coffee berry chocolate. Coffee-whisky taste gave way to prominent berry as it warmed up. Feel is a bit thin but at 7.5 abv, would be expected. Overall, this was a great stout when you know you need to drive home.

DATE: January 28, 2021... OCCASION: the leadoff hitter for this year's Extreme Beer Fest--with Jerry, the gift's bestower, no less! GLASSWARE: EBF plastic cup... pours a jet black body with dark brown head, a slight smear that may suggest strength... aroma includes light maple, heat, roasted bread malts, coffee--which someone noted in the forum, despite the brewer stating there isn't any in this... medium-bodied, lingering finish, effervescent and engaging...a bit punchy even... a sweet finish, with the maple subdued and the malts pushed forward.... this is indeed a delicious start to the night, solid in every phase, strong in its weight, and highly drinkable (though I believe the brewer estimated the ABV% at 7.9, not 9.7)...

A very tasty, albeit light bourbon barrel offering. No rich luxurious body, no huge roast flavor, but some very nice Maple, bourbon, and barrel characteristics like vanilla and toasted coconut. Pretty great beer all things considered.

Brief Review:

Was super excited to try this super beer. Never made distro, but was lucky to get a local crowler. A little disappointed here, comes across thin, bourbon not too strong. Hurt by the thin base beer (Uncle Steve’s I think?). But overall not too bad.

Recommendation: Tough to find, but still worth trying if you’re a big Short’s fan.
