Drinks like 15% and I mean that in a good way. It lacks in no areas, full flavored and full mouthfeel. It’s sweet but not pastry stout level. Has all the roasted bitterness a big stout should have, has some coffee notes, chocolate and some slight coconut. Finishes with some licorice notes. Bourbon does not leave the palate while drinking this but it isn’t over powering.
Fantastic bourbon taste, with sweet molasses finish. ABV well hidden. Definitely a one and done affair, as the sweetness combined with the high ABV will make you regret otherwise.It’s a really nice Belgian strong ale, and not really a stout.
Enjoyed the subtle barrel aging with the sweetness of the malts. Almost seemed like a Belgium dark quad.
Deliciously thick and tasty. Be warned it has a bite because of its high alc content
Deep, roasted cocoa powder with some dark stone fruit characteristics. Smooth vanilla finish.
A finely crafted bourbon barrel stout. Just the right amount of sweet to temper the booze. Excellent mouth-feel makes this a near perfect winner!
The Belgian malts work great with the barrel aging.
Excellent barrel aged stout! The bourbon warmth yields to an alcoholic sting.
Has a nice dark richy and creamy taste with a hint of bourbon in the mix, it's a real nice sipper. Plus it gives a nice little buzz.
12oz can from Tavour. Almost black pour, ring of beige head. Sweet, boozy aroma. Bourbon barrels are the first thing you taste also. Belgian stout flavors are evident after the big alcohol blast. While this seems to be all about the ABV, there are other flavors (licorice) and textures in there for a layered approach. I'm really enjoying this, and Taxman has been a favorite of mine for their big Belgian ales.
I wanted to like this one, but darn it, the bitterness is just simply overboard. My friend who has drunk pretty much anything from brandy to bacardi, said the bitterness on this one is just simply "too much".
Bit thin for my preference
Straight up BA stout.....good!
This one hits hard. Doesn’t taste as boozy as you would expect.
A nice barrel-aged stout that has a good maltiness that comes through. They did a good job with the aging because the bourbon taste comes through well. Molasses-like, mildly sweet, and boozy.
definitely strong but not much on flavor, kinda basic
