Big ups to saucya for hooking me up with this brew on a trade.
A. Black with a thin tan head that has no retention or lacing at all.
S. Bourbon, chocolate and vanilla take over the smell of this brew with hints of coffee in the background.
T. From the first sip, your tastebuds are attacked with flavors of chocolate, vanilla, oak bourbon, and coffee. Chocolate and coffee are dominant at the beginning, then as it warms, the bourbon flavor start to take over. vanilla and oak remain the whole way through but never peak as dominant as the other three.
M. mouthfeel is wonderfully full and rich
D. Drinkability is amazingly smooth for a 10%er. not sure the stomach could hang with too many as it's quite filling, but I'd like to find out how many I could put down before the stomach says "no mas".
All in all this is one fantastic brew. far and away the best of the bourbon barrel aged stouts I've come across yet. I got to find a way to secure a case of this next go round.
