This beer was wasted on me.
I do no not typically like stouts, and not a fan of the whole "barrel aged" thing because I don't do whiskey or bourbon.
I was glad I got to try it.
Don't worry, no drain pour, my good buddy Mikey got to benefit from it.

On Tap at Nightmare Before Christmas Itap Soulard This along with many other whales on draft…
Was so excited to try this… First server said they were out, asked a couple others and got 4 8 ounce pours of this guy. Probably approaching roughly 700 unique beers. Much of that coming in the last year
A - Motor oil thick dark beautiful pour with the dark khaki foam half inch head. Lacing is amazing.
S - Amazing coffee aroma in this beer that stood out incredibly.. smell blended very well with cocoa and very well hidden bourbon notes.
T - This was the best tasting beer IMO at this event with the likes of many other top 100 beers. This beer warmed up amazingly and more and more coffee, cocoa flavors came out as it approached 55-60. Alcohol is extremely well hidden in the taste as bourbon hints come through at the end. This taste exceeded my expectations regarding the hype surrounding this beer.
M - This beer was served too cold so waited for it to warm.. it because much thicker, creamier, smoother as it warmed up with a full bodied mouthfeel. Awesome finish on this beer.
THis beer exceed my expectations in terms of taste and finish.
O - First time having this and it was on draft… I've been blessed to get my hands on a few bottles in the last couple weeks and will be opening 1-2 on Christmas Eve. This beer is well worth the hype and lived up or exceeded my expectations.
Seek this one out if you can! Will be having it on draft again This upcoming saturday for Nightmare Before Christmas Itap Chesterfield
Update: 2014 is definitely not up to par with past years. Where did the barrel flavor go. Just tasted like a middle of the some barrel aged stout
Serving type: on-tap
