Had on-tap at the Yard House in Phoenix, AZ. Poured into a goblet.

L: Poured an inky black with thin tan head. No light was getting through this one.

S: Roasted malts and coffee. Chocolate and booze.

T/F: Booze up front and all the way through. The stout definitely played second fiddle with the roasted grains and coffee present but subdued. Oakiness for sure. Warming from the alcohol. Light on the carbonation.

O: A decent bourbon stout but not one of the best. Too boozy (if that's possible?) And not enough stout. Still one I'd have again. A nice after dinner sipper.

A - poured with one finger of light tan foam on top ofa black body. Head settles quickly and leaves light lace.

S - strong barrel character with notes of chocolate, raisins, oak, and licorice.

T - whiskey and dark, sugary malt up front. Raisins, chocolate and some boozy, almost solvent like character. Finishes with dark fruit, oak and boozy vanilla.

M - medium body, moderately low carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - dark and intense with an almost, but not quite excessive barrel character.
