look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A - garnett colored, off-white head, 2 fingers, good retention, dissipates down to 1 finger ring. Very nice.

S - chocolate, light roast coffee, vanilla and bourbon. Hops are very light possibly floral and citrus.

T - chocolatey, maple like maltiness, some vanilla, and hearty notes of bourbon.

M - malt-dominated, medium bodied, not hot, but a little warmth on the aftertaste.

D - very nice overall. Abv not heavy, helps make it almost sessionable. Worth seeking it out.

Serving type: on-tap

Don't know what to say, maybe I had a bad one - not stouty at all.

More black IPA than stout.

Not bubby to look at but had a light carbonated mouthfeel.

Caramel bourbon smell.

Edge of head no webbing.

Found to be quite gassy.

I had a Clown Shoes Blaecorn Unidragon before, which may affect this review.

3.8/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours black with some reddening around the edges and a persistent two fingers of light brown head. On the nose I get woodsy vanilla, caramel, and chocolate with an alcohol aroma, which is surprising given that it's only 6.9 % ABV. There's a roasted malt quality as well. All these flavors are stretched thin in the taste: here there is relatively little malt presence. It's bourbon forward with a dry cocoa powder and vanilla flavor. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and it finishes with a moderate hop bitterness.
