Night black with an attractive half inch mocha head.

Heavy of bourbon on the nose. Hits of vanilla and espresso and mocha.

Vanilla bourbon taste with a finish of the roasted malt stout. Not as intense or strong as other BBAS. The bourbon is loosing intensity the more I drink. Other notes of cocoa and a little coffee.

Very smooth light bodied comparatively with other BBAS which makes it very drinkable. Alcohol no where to be found.

Overall it's a session Bourbon Barrel Stout for me... Good for when you need that kick but don't want to fully commit.

On tap at Pikes in Long Beach, CA

A: Black with light tan head

S: Dark fruity with a little bourbon

T: Tastes first of fruit and milk chocolate, ends with bourbon

M: Light and carbonated

Overall: The brew is not very complex. no real depth. the only thing going for the brew is that you could taste the wild turkey

Pours great, dark, decent head on this ale.

Good bourbon aroma and flavor, but not over powering.

Mouthful on this is quite watery. Slight bourbon stays with you.

There are several other bourbon ales I would drink before this one, but definitely worth a try.
