Bottle brought to share by Umberto yesterday.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like bourbon soaked chocolate bars, with a bit of oak, and nicely, no alcohol.

This one packs a good amount of flavor in for only 6% alcohol or so. As expected, there is no burn on this one, just some chocolate, a bit of roasted expresso beans and roasted malt, heavy cream, and some sweet bourbon. It doesn't slap you in the face like some bourbon barrel aged beers will do, but it doesn't need to. It's an easy drinking "session" bourbon barrel aged stout.

The beer has a body of medium thickness, it could of course be a little thicker, but it's only 6% ABV, after all. It has a creamy mouthfeel, with a lower amount of carbonation.

A really good example of how a bourbon barrel aged beer doesn't need to be an insane ABV to taste good.
