Poured from the bomber to a snifter.
A: Poured black with a dark brown tinge and two-finger tan head. Pretty decent lacing, looks nice. Lots of carbonation.
S: Vanilla and oak smell from the bourbon barrels, toffee, fudge brownie. Smells sweet. Smells very pleasant, the bourbon doesn't overwhelm the smell.
T: Very chocolatey, like a very rich and lightly bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts. Dark fruit, oak, bourbon is there but is definitely not dominating the palate. Some coffee as well. Slightly bitter on the end.
M: Medium to full bodied. Pretty thick and chewy mouth-feel. Seems like more than average carbonation which also has a softer feeling on the tongue.
Overall not surprisingly a very good stout. A very chocolate forward beer. Can't go wrong with this stout, very complex.
