Served on tap at Mugs Alehouse in Brooklyn, NY
A: Pours an opaque dark brown with some slight amber tones. The beer has a thin beige head that reduces to a thin ring of bubbles at the edge of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.
S: Some slight hints of alcohol, mostly bourbon, are present but not like the burn you sometimes associate with high ABV beers. There is a lot of malty sweetness, caramel + toffee, as well as some oak, charred wood, and vanilla notes.
T: Nice roasted malts with some caramel sweetness and lots of bourbon barrel flavors (oak and vanilla). Very nice balance and a lot of complexity to the flavor.
M: Medium to full bodied with low to moderate amounts of carbonation. Very smooth.
O: This beer has an inviting aroma and is delicious as well as incredibly smooth - it gets better with each sip and I was just hoping the glass would never end. Super easy to drink and hides the alcohol well, I could sip on this all day long and never tire of it....hmmmm, maybe that should be my plan.
Serving type: on-tap
