I'm not usually a fan of Bourbon barrel brews (I like wine barrel ones), but I am always trying to expand my horizons, so I had this one on tap at Melt.

It looks like a stout with a little creamy head - nice. The aroma is dominated by the whiskey smell. Similarly, it tastes like an average, well balanced (not American) stout - with a shot of whiskey in it. The aftertaste, you guessed it, bourbon.

I think this whole effect would be better served by taking a shot of whiskey and dropping it in a stout. Duh. Then you would have some extra kick too. I'm going to try that some time soon.

This is 2nd time I've had this from tap and was hoping it would change my mind, but it's very thin, hardly any BB smell or taste... drinks more like a porter, decent but not great.

Incredibly smooth, great French vanilla flavor and perfect mouthfeel. Wasn't too hard to finish the bottle.

Doesn't live up to mid level bourbon beers out there.

Pour is black with a lot of tan head, a good bit of bubbles, and a lot of lacing. Nose has some scorched wood, moderate bourbon notes, light roasted malt. Taste is a bit thin, barrel fades in flavor, some chocolaty malt, a touch chalky, light vanilla. Body is a touch thin, soft carb, soft and creamy feel.
