Picked up a bottle of this at Julio's. Poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Poured a nice rich dark brown chestnut hue with a very nice fat one finger mocha head that fades to leave light lacing and a very, very creamy blanket.
S - Aromas of nice nuttiness (pecans), faint coffee, the booze is faint, no alcohol, nice creamy aromas, chocolate, super faint citrus hops. Very pleasant and inviting.
T - Taste is sweet caramel, very nice chocolate, roasted malts, coffee is faint. There is some bourbon notes, subtle tones here. Light barrel. Don't really get any rye, or wheat for that matter. Do really like this..nice pecan/nut notes, alcohol is hidden very, very well. Creeps up on you though. Really like how the bourbon is on the quiet side, but present throughout.
M - Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth. Alcohol is hidden surprisingly well.
O - Overall I was surprised at how much I liked this stout. I had initially hoped the bourbon would be strong, but as subtle as it is it really lended nicely to the flavour. The pecan is nice, as is the roasted, sweeter malts. Its almost poundable, almost, and then the booze finally sinks in. Wonder how this will handle to aging...
