3.69/5 rDev -6.8%
Not sure what to make of this beer. Came from the tap with a shout bubbly head that went away quickly with little lacing on the glass. I enjoyed the aroma, vanilla and bread. Flavor is vanilla and toffee and then wham, the alcohol takes over. Definitely true to the bourbon heritage, but it overpowered the beer. I'd like more coffee flavor in this to balance the booze. It started out nice, but is quickly losing it's best qualities. I'm glad I tried this one, but not one I'd buy again.

3.75/5 rDev -5.3%
Pours a turbid ebony with a thumb of tan head. Great lacing & head retention, never
really drops bright ( as far as this style can ). Stays effervescent (4.5)
S: Figs, faint booze, Bourbon gets stronger once warm (3.5)
T: Raisins, booze, dryness, Bourbon & figs up front. Some caramel & vanilla mix in with figgyness
once warm, a little molasses, some jammyness too almost makes me think Boulevard BBQ. Finishes
boozey with some woody notes, more figs (3.75)
MF: Medium body at best, slight carbonation, very warming, slick (3.5)
Huge beer, proceed with caution. Tasty enough, just needed more Stout aspects to make me
really happy. Well worth a go though (3.75)
