Again I am surprised that this is not rated higher. This brew is good! has incredible drinkability. The bourbon flavor is subtle so you can taste the stout...a good balance. This beer hides the 9% well and I would purchase it again.

Bottom Line: Hidden gem from the Brew Works! buy it, drink it or age it cause it's good!

On tap at St. James Gate Irish Pub at Sands Bethlehem.
Poured into a tasting glass

A: Pours an opaque black with a tan creamy head that slowly builds

S: Hints of chocolate on the nose with a slight bourbon

T: tastes sweet on the tongue with a dry roasty finish after swallowing. Hint of bourbon lingers

M: Feels smooth and does not have a whole lot of carbonation on the tongue, but does prickle a little bit on the finish. Slight burn from the abv afterward.

Overall: This is a great beer! Dispite the abv I could probably drink quite a few of these. Not a ridiculous overwhelming bourbon flavor like some bourbon stouts have. I am a big fan of bourbon and of stouts, so this beer is right up there on my list!
