Poured from a growler filled at Joe Canals, Lawrenceville.
Pours an oily black. Very little head or carbonation. What little head it had, was dark tan to brown.
Intense oak and bourbon smell. Chocolate, coffee, and a bit of soy sauce. Whiff of alcohol lets you know what's in store from the almost 15% abv.
Flavors ran the gamut from wildly sweet to intensely savory. Beyond the heavy oak, vanilla, and bourbon, I tasted everything from baking coco, caramel, coffee, and figs, to burnt sugar, molasses, and soy sauce. Boozy finish.
Mouthfeel was oily and slick. Very little carbonation gave it an almost velvety feel.
Overall an intense brew. Not balanced, but goes down way too easy to not call it highly drinkable. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Serving type: growler
