Frothy, beige head that leaves ample webs of lace. Slow to recede. Near black color--a bit of light passes on the base of the glass.

Slightly sweet aroma with a definitive whiskey touch. The smell does not have an alcohol nose. Good chocolate notes.

Rich and chocolatey. Starts off innocently, but there's a strong fudge kick in the swallow. The aftertaste reminds me of an after dinner chocolate. i do not taste the whiskey I smelled earlier. The body is thick and the carbonation low. It's a bit like drinking a carbonated, chilled hot cocoa.

On tap at Yardhouse, I think a pint was $7. Looks like your typical stout: black. Head was decent and tan in color. Aroma was a nice bourbon, thick with hints of stout. Flavor was above average, heavy bourbon with roasted malts but it felt too thin. I ordered thus thinking it was Huge Arker and was a little disappointed. I think bourbon barrels are great for beer but the base beer needs to be pretty big to stand up to it, lower ABV beers are just too watery.
