Pours a sludgy black with some brown highlights a dark tan head that fades quickly.
Smells of bourbon, wood, sweetness, chocolate, slightly oxidized sherry notes. Big pleasing, boozy nose.
Taste is up front bourbon with malt richness, chocolate that goes into a boozy middle with hints of coffee and alcohol sweetness before finishing on a bourbon, vanilla, and wood note. Some lingering notes of chocolate; the coffee is buried deep under the bourbon and wood.
Full body and low carbonation works well. Alcohol is very present.
A bourbon, booze forward sipper of a stout. The chocolate and coffee come out as the beer warms, and it evolves constantly as you drink it. A nice bourbon barrel-aged stout, though, a bit too bourbon heavy for me...will be happy to age a few and see how they end up.

Served on tap at the Constant Spring in Goshen Indiana.
This is a beautiful inky black beer with a gorgeous golden head that stays around for a little while.
Awesome aroma full of coffee and vanilla.
Huge amount of flavor. Starts slightly boozy, but then smooths out and and the other flavors come through. Massive notes of bourbon and vanilla on top of the awesome coffee and chocolate flavor. Brilliant.
Super silky mouthfeel.
Just fantastic, by far the best beer I've put in my mouth.
Serving type: on-tap
