Poured on-tap at the brewery in Kernville into a wide-mouthed goblet. The waitress informed us that they have placed a 20oz limit on the beer per customer in order to lengthen it's stay on tap. The beer is dark black with a thick, 2 inch cream colored head. Heavy bourbon and sweet smell on the nose. Initial tastes are heavy on the bourbon, with a sour mash initial flavor, followed by the sweetness of brown sugar. There are vanilla undertones present on the finish. The beer has a more rounded and full body than the Class V Stout. The beer is surprisingly smooth despite the heavy flavors. This is a very well balanced beer, taking into account the ABV, the strong flavors, and the body. This is an easy beer to drink for bourbon fans and beer fans alike!
Serving type: on-tap
