3.01/5 rDev -29.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75
On tap at Emporium Arcade Bar
Appearance - Very Dark. Some light getting through around edges. Not much. Small ring of head around the glass. Minimal, spotty lacing.
Smell - Warm bourbon, oak, coffee, chocolate malt.
Taste - Coffee and bourbon dominate without being overbearing. Slightly watery. The regular Eugene base really takes a backseat here. I can barely recognize it.
Mouthfeel - Thin body, medium carbonation, finishes sticky and dry.
Overall - Underwhelming but still not bad. I love the regular Eugene so I had high hopes for this one. Some people said it was better than KBS. It's not even close to KBS. Too light and watery for a bourbon barrel beer, in my opinion. I'll pass on this one next time.
Serving type: on-tap

4.19/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
This poured thickly with a black color and a foamy head that laid thinly across the top.
The nose is earthy with a coffee bean and smoke but hints of marshmallow and chocolate are apparent.
The flavor has light coconut, a buttery cream, and marshmallow to open. Chocolatey sweetness follows with malted barley and oak wood.
The feel is dry but velvety smooth, easy but thick and full.
A thoroughly enjoyable beer with a good amount of sweetness to carry it as dessert.
