Purchased at a gas station in Warren MI for $11.00 for a 22oz bomber. Served at 6deg C in a tulip.

A- Wonderful black goodness. Super nice brown head that does not last at all

S- Bit lacking I though but watch the next ratings.....

T- A bourbon flavor but weak beer all around. It's a Guinness with bourbon aging

M- Watery like a Guinness all the way

O- Glad I only bought one. Will not buy again

Food Pairing

This ok beer pairs well with....... Anything you pair a Guinness with that you don't mind a bit of bourbon.

Enjoy

Tobacco overwhelms everything. On the dry side.

Chocolate and vanilla and a little cooked sugar for good measure on both the tongue and nose as expected with a barrel aged stout. Not as much alcohol as I expected from a Turkey-barrel-aged beer so it lacks a little of the typical warmth but I don't really miss it here. It is an exceedingly pleasant brew that I feel would be a great introduction to the breed. It is not the heavier, fuller bodied, more potent example I can sip on for an entire football game but it can be nursed for a really good half! As a matter of fact, buy 2 and make it a full game you can enjoy win or lose. Perfect for the cool winter evenings of the South since it isn't quite as heavy as expected. Worthy of a purchase for sure.
