2012 vintage on-tap at Ocean Beach Pizza Port during SDBW, reviewed from notes.

A- Black as the night when driving through the San Bernardino mountains after dark (oddly specific eh?) with a one finger cocoa brown head. Decent foam retention and the creamy ring that remains leaves just a few lace spots.

S- Charred oak Bourbon barrels off the top on a big base of fudgey cocoa, rich chocolate malts. The whiskey balances nicely and doesn't feel hot, blended and maybe the age helps. It also just smells like a good Bourbon. Some aged caramel, vanilla and oak wood as well.

T- Maybe fifty-fifty here with the barrel and the big, decadent base brew. Just the right amount for me with quality Bourbon, vanilla and charred oak notes balancing roasted grains, chocolate malts, caramel and hints of dark fruits. Vanilla dessert sweets and good espresso also comes to mind.

MF- Creamy and thick bodied with just a decadent overall feel. Moderate level of carbonation and smooth. Finishes warm, in a nice way.

Really good balance of a great stout and the barrel used to age it. Reminds me of KBS in ways and a brew I would love to have again.

Serving type: on-tap
