2.74/5  rDev -28.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Pours dark brown/black with a lot (almost too much) of mocha colored head. Good retention and decent lacing.

Not picking up a ton on the nose. Some roast malt, sweet chocolate and a hint of bourbon.

Again not much in the flavor department either. A little roasted malt with just a touch of bourbon. There's a weird sweetness as well that overpowers everything, but it still finishes a little astringent. Almost tastes oxidized as well. Strange for a fresh bottle.

Mouthfeel is probably the downfall of this. Just too much carbonation that doesn't let the flavors shine.

Disappointed in this one. Beer itself is fine, but kind of bland. Being that it is a bourbon aged beer, I would expect much more so the scores are all a bit lower due to the expectation from the style.
