Poured into a snifter. decent pour. Tan head, exquisite lacing, looked like a dalmation. Bar was dark, but the beer appeared boldly black.
Tastes full bodied n carbonated. Creamy bourbon chocolate. Not really the flavor for this beer, but reminds me of rum cake (if it was saturated in makers mark).
Mouthfeel is perfect, thick and creamy but not too syrupy, and with none of that trub you sometimes get in the bottle, maybe im just not used to drinking from a tap.
Drinkability is low just because this is so damn strong. Delicious, but i would never exceed two of these a night.
Serving type: on-tap

The beer pours coffee black with a thin halo of tan head that lays content around the glass's circumference. There is negligible carbonation and no sediment. The nose is heavy with bourbon notes, vanilla/caramel oakiness, and has little spice or hops. The taste provides generous chocolately sweetness upfront followed by dark fruits (raisins, black mission figs), coconut, minimal roast/bitterness, and a biting ethanol. It's full bodied, minimally carbonated (but not totally flat), sweet with rich bourbon barrel notes, and has a lingering, slightly dry, boozy oak in the finish. This is definitely a potent bourbon infused stout that has left me completely satisfied from availability to execution - would recommend to others.
