on tap at the BA Sexual Chocolate release part

a- pours a dark brown that has big transluscent brown tones when held to light. small cream colored head of the pour.

s- rich, sweet dark malts. a bit of caramel, wood, and a bit of tartness mixing with some fruity yeast esters. very light bourbon.

t- sweet malts up front; chocolate, caramel, light roasted. light bitterness balances the sweet malts. the tartness from the nose is even stronger here. I'm assuming it's tannins from the wood causing this. it's a nice complexity but it really doesn't hit my palate right. the bourbon is really light in this one.

m- medium-light bodied. moderate carbonation aides the fullness of this one. no alchohol warming.

d- good drinkability in the technical sense but the barrel really didn't do anything to improve this one. I stuck to the other options after one pour of this one. nice to see what happens when a lower ABV ale is thrown in some barrels.

Growler. Pours a dark brown color with a big mocha tan head. Rich dark chocolate with a big handful of bourbon notes. Some roast as well. Medium/light mouthfeel, lighter than expected and desired given the strong aroma and flavor. Roasted coffee and bourbon notes upfront with a bitter dark chocolate back end. Lingering booze flavor but no burn of alcohol. Overall, I enjoyed this but wish the mouthfeel was a little heavier. The bourbon notes may be offputting to some.
