On-tap at Alewife, Long Island City, NY

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a thin brown head consisting of very large bubbles; these died down and eventually completely faded away.
S: Moderate aromas of dark fruit are present in the nose—blackberries seem to stand out in particular—along with hints of bourbon from the barrel aging. The smell of bourbon becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has a light to moderate amount of sourness—like the smell, the bourbon flavors become stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation.
O: This is an interesting combination of sour and bourbon flavors. I thought that this beer would have been better if there was more carbonation and the taste was more balanced.
