Had on tap at the Revolution tap room. Served in a snifter.

A: Pours a dark black color with dark brown highlights. A tan head forms on the pour and recedes to thin ring. Some splotches of lace are left down the glass.

S: Light bourbon, some oak and chocolate. Roasted malts with mix with a caramel sweetness.

T: Same as the nose, but very smooth. The bourbon mixes with a decadent chocolate and some milk chocolate sweetness. Roasted malts with some oak barrel and subtle vanilla.

M: Medium bodied with a medium low carbonation. Velvety and smooth.

O: Very good and a nice smooth barrel compliment to the already delicious Eugene porter.

Serving type: on-tap
