Picked this up on August 13, 2006 at the Sunset Grill and Tap, a few minutes after the keg was tapped. Reviewed from notes. I'd been looking forward to tasting this for ages and it finally came my way so I figured I'd check it out.
Poured into a Delerium Tremens snifter, this guy was dark black, completely opaque. The head was brown and extremely foamy - big, big bubbles instead of the small teeny ones I'm used to. Head retention was good.
Smells of coffee and bourbon, leaning towards the bourbon side. Very roasty. Vanilla was also definitely present, although not as present as the other smells.
Taste is dark and roasty, much more so than I'm used to in stouts. This is tasty - notes of bourbon, coffee and vanilla. This is a delicious brew, just not my favorite example of the style.
Serving type: on-tap
