Served in a snifter at Fountainhead.

This stuff is DH's Boffo Brown aged in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. It pours a brackishly bleak black-brown topped by a half-finger of tan foam. The nose comprises double-chocolate cake, bourbon, light roasted malts, light port, and a hint of maple syrup. The taste holds notes of tobacco, walnut, light bourbon, oak, light cedar, and light toffee. In short, it tastes like a substantially watered-down version of the smell, sadly. The body is a light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel (which makes things come across as too thin for their own good (in my eyes, anyway)). Overall, a decent little beer, but one that seems to illustrate the point that certain beers just can't handle barrel-aging as well as others.
