3.65/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black. Small khaki head. A few wisps.

Smell - Bourbon is strong. Doesn't scream Pappy at all. Has that sweet, kinda maple-y aroma of Pappy, but not quite the same. Boozy. Dark chocolate.

Taste - Chocolate and fudge. Booze. Very woody in the middle as bourbon builds. This definitely doesn't taste like pappy. Has an astringent finish.

Mouthfeel - Boozy. Medium heavy body.

Overall - Good bourbon stout, but if this is Pappy, it's not coming through very well.

A-Black in the glass, one finger brown head that leaves some lacing.

S-Good deal of bourbon. Some vanilla and chocolate. Roasted malt as well.

T-Woah. Pappy barrels kill it again. Starts with great bourbon then oak and vanilla. Some spice. Chocolate and roasted malt as well.

M-Medium bodied, some carbonation, velvety.

O-Pappy barrels kill it. There is nothing more you need to know.
