Had this on draught at the brewery on the eve of the eve of xmas.

Appearance: This poured very black, with a thin hue of brown as a buffer zone between the blackness and the glass. Beige head that is about a nickels worth and dissipates leaving it's residue around the rim.

Smell: Bourbon, char, vanilla bean, fresh ground coffee, syrup, molasses, brown sugar, fig, hazelnut, and chocolate.

Taste: Very much what the nose is telling you. vanilla, chocolate, char, sweet darker fruits like fig or dates. Throughout the sip, bourbon is wonderfully fused throughout the beer and ends with a nice splash of coffee.

Mouthfeel: The darker roast gives it that robust nice dry finish, leaving you coming back for another sip The char really gives your mouth the experience of drinking a bourbon. And the density of the beer really makes this a great sipper. A nice full bodied beer.

Overall: This is a great interpretation of the bourbon aged stout and I will say one of the best I've had. All the flavors are flawlessly mixed, and I think more importantly they aged this perfectly. Someone there is making beer fun lately, and I'm 100% on board. I'm giving this 5/5. I really wish fellow beer nerds would be generous with their 5's too. I'm tired of these hyped beers taking the top 100. This beats out any BCBS, Founders, or any other hyped stout.
