4.18/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours dark as hell with a light lacing head around the rim of the glass

Smell- bourbon, oakyness, and vanilla.

Taste- bourbon, vanilla up front. Brown sugar is present and the finish is very suttle with bourbon but it doesn't linger. Some alcohol burn

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
