On tap at Central City.

A: 1/8" off-white head which dissipated quickly over black liquid.

S: Someone boozy smell of bourbon with some toasted and coffee malt.

T: The taste was kind of disappointing this time. The Makers Mark bourbon was somewhat boozy and uncohesive with the rest of the porter. Midway through there was nothing to entertain the palate and in the finish the toasted and coffee malt flavours were somewhat faint.

M: Thin viscosity and a low level of carbonation.

O: Originally I fell in love with this beer, but after having more of the style and reviewing it again I was less impressed. Maybe it was a quality issue, maybe it wasn't fresh, I'm not sure. Either way it seemed different than before.

Serving type: on-tap
