Cork and Caged 375mL Poured into a Tulip.
This was my contribution to my friend T's tasting. Thankfully it stood up to some of the massive brews he pulled out.
L: Pours a thick black with a wispy touch at cream-foam head. For how thick it is, I expected yet thicker.
S: Massively malt forward with the Angel's Share right up front, overtaken by a mealy stout middle, overtaken by bourbon wonderfulness. The 3 flavors fade wonderfully together, into a malty, boozy, mealy finish. Great balance for how much is going on here. Never turns into the mess i expected.
T: Blend is more horizontal in the mouth than the nose, the 3-components rise up as one into a wonderfully over-powering middle. After that the malt drops out in favor of a bourbon-y stout wonderfulness. Perfection, for all it's overwhelming magnificence.
F: Thick, but not thick enough. Effervescent carbonation is perfect and makes the beer seem almost light. Still, I'm looking for some pretty massive (read: Cafe Royale) type viscosity here.
D: More please. Surprisingly drinkable for a sipper.

The beer comes in a dark black color.
The aroma has oak aging, medium amount of bourbon, with a lighter alcohol note, charred cherry wood, a tinge of fruitness.
The flavor follows of with charred wood in the front, lightly roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, and bourbon. It tastes very much like a lighter version of BCBS. Alcohol comes through on the finish to clean off the palate.
A wonderfully delicious barrel aged brew.
Serving type: on-tap
