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.

The nose is filled with Chocolate! Huge chocolate tones of chocolate malt, milk chocolate, chocolate powder and chocolate milk. There are some tones of dark fruits but it's shoved to the back.

The flavor is smooth and thick with hazelnuts, milk chocolate, light roast, walnuts, chocolate malt and a thin ribbon of bourbon. Exceptional flavor and feel.

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.
