On-tap at Barley's Taproom & Pizzeria, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color. Faint hints of amber are visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a thin tan head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edges.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bourbon are present in the nose; these become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste has flavors of bourbon from the barrel aging along with hints of dark malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. Notes of warming from the bourbon barrel aging are also noticeable.
O: This stout isn't that difficult to drink and has nice flavors fo bourbon from the barrel aging process. No alcohol is perceptible.

Serving type: on-tap

Served on-tap at Foothills Brewing in Winston-Salem, NC.

A: Pours an opaque very dark brown bordering on jet black in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some subtle dark amber highlights. The beer has a half finger tall thin sudsy light tan head that quickly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to heavy aromas of dark roasted malts, chocolate, and bourbon with some lighter notes of oak and coffee.

T: Similar to the smell, the taste of this beer starts out with moderate flavors of roasted malts that quickly has the coffee and dark chocolate flavors take over. All of the that pales in comparison to the strong flavors of bourbon with lighter notes of oak and vanilla. There are light to moderate amounts of bitterness but they fade quickly with the bourbon flavors.

M: Medium bodied with just shy of moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly on the thin side with some light notes of alcohol warming towards the finish.

O: I found this beer to be easy to drink, especially for a BA stout, and the bourbon aromas/flavors really complement the base beer. Very enjoyable and one I would gladly consume when I came across it.
