Had on tap at whole foods Columbus circle- pours a thick black color with minimal head, retention, and lacing. Keeps a ring of foam around the edge. Served in a pint glass.
Smell is not strong- a hint of caramel/bourbon evenly blended with some dark roasted malt and a little booze. Nothing to blow you over.
Taste is far more interesting. Sweet bourbon taste, some roasted malts (coffee, a little milk chocolate). This is pretty sweet. Not really a noticeable hop presence but it must be there because the sweetness isnt out of control.
Mouthfeel is pretty nice- full bodied, light carbonation, a little chewy. This is one I've heard about so I had to try it. Worth a try, perhaps not a second.
Update: I've aged a few bottles of the 2012 variety and just had one- sickeningly sweet, cloying mouthfeel. Still not a fan; don't understand the hype. Too sweet, no carbonation or bitterness to make it drinkable in the slightest. Anyone want my other bottles?
Serving type: on-tap
