I am not a stout drinker at all, but the thought of chocolate in a bourbon barrel was intriguing, and what a bad thing it would have been if I hadn't tried this delicious brew! I keep hoping someone else will have it on tap, when it is, I am gonna buy a couple of growlers, and believe me, they won't last!

Big bourbon barrel nose, chocolate, vanilla, coffee
Pours brilliant coffee black under a 2" tan head that dissipates at a moderate rate to a thick film, lacy.
Palate: Wild Turkey, coffee, bourbon, chocolate, vanilla. Long lingering aftertastes.
Very creamy body, medium full, very fine soft carbonation, above average.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 05.09.14.

A: Midnight black with some red at the bottom. Tan 2 finger head. Great lacing.

S: Vanilla, caramel. I could smell it from an arm's length away while pouring. Magnificent!

T: Vanilla, caramel, bourbon dominate. Very slight char is there too as well as milk chocolate.

M: Creamy smooth. A bit watery but the ABV is very low for a BB stout, so whatever.

O: This was my first BB stout. I'm an addict now because of this one. The vanilla, caramel, and bourbon are strong. It is surprisingly complex. The ABV is low, but there is always Huge Arker for something heavier in the mouth.

Rating: A
