On tap at the Kedzie brewery; review from written notes.

Black body with dark brownish edges. Dark tan collar of foam with very little lacing to speak of. Still glassy surface. Some clarity visible around the edges.

Fruity plum and brown sugar, coconut, soft whiskey in the aroma.

Bourbon figures large in the taste, the whiskey barrel dominates the base porter, a slight plum note is there, but it's mainly whiskey barrel from start to finish. Medium bodied and dry, a little thin. Overall not bad but not a favorite. May mellow out after some aging but not going to bother with it personally.

Serving type: on-tap
