On tap at Empire Slice House OKC. Pours a dark brown with a finger of creamy mocha head that recedes quickly. The tap is pretty cold, so there's not a lot of aroma. You can definitely smell the bourbon, some chocolate and coffee. The bourbon predominates the taste, and is a bit much. Some dark chocolate and red plums sneak their way in. Really, really boozy. Medium mouth, but not a lot of oil. The aftertaste disappears quickly. Did I mention it's a bourbon first brew? It really loses any sense of balance as it warms. I'm not likely to revisit this one soon.

A- medium black with a decent tan head.
S- chocolate, bourbon, a little roast. Decent but nothing terribly complex
T- Kind of a struggle here. A very brief hint of chocolate and roasted malt before the bourbon kicks in. It's fairly easy to not pick up much other than the bourbon. Really not much in the finish as the MF doesn't let it linger.
M- Too thin, more like a black ale, but maybe even thin for that
O- this beer adds to my suspicion that low abv stouts and bourbon don't mix. Velvet merkin was better but not by a significant margin. Basically the beer itself acts mostly a conduit for the bourbon flavor. And whatever flavor the beer does have doesn't mesh terribly well with the bourbon. Gotta give them credit for shooting for a low abv BA stout at a reasonable price, but just doesn't get there. [Edit: got a bit better at room temp, but still closer to mediocre.]
