Received the last bottle from the back room of Discount Liquor Waukesha. Bottle dated: 2/17/12
A - Pitch black with some carbonation, and a thin brownish head
S - Light bourbon, coffee
T - Roasted malt, coffee, oak wood undertones, and a buttery bourbon flavor yet surprisingly not overpowering as is typical for the style
M - Believe it or not, the body is somewhere between medium and heavy. Smooth, and the subtle carbonation and warmth from the alcohol, almost seems to soothe the tongue
O - If it wasn't so hard to find and Founder's made more batches, I'd make this one of my go to stouts. This is now my new favorite bourbon barrel stout. It is crucial to let this one warm up to about 50-55 degrees to experience the full range of flavors in this beer. It has a great mouthfeel, is complex and as balanced as a bourbon barrel stout can be given this beer styles strong bourbon flavors. I look forward to next March and will hopefully be able to pick up a 4 pack before its all out.
