Bottle to Lawson's sniffer
A:dark as night black that pours thick like motor oil. It is completely opaque with no head what so ever and thin tan lacing around the top of the glass.
S:the bourbon flavor is strong and very present up front there are even some hints of alcohol but they are not powerful. There are hints of vanilla and fruit but bourbon is definitely the dominant smell though not overpowering.
T: similar to the nose there is a heavy bourbon flavor upfront there is plenty of chocolate and vanilla flavors. Those are the dominant flavor but they are impressively not overpowering.
M:the feel is smooth, it is not thick in terms of it being heavy but it is very syrupy like bourbon chocolate syrup. There is basically no carbonation but that is as to be desired from a BA stout.
O: this is a really solid BA bourbon stout not really mind blowing up just as good as the big players would like to see it age. It is smooth with a great mouthfeel and solid taste without being overpowering. The look is good but the smell is meh. Worth a try for sure as I highly reccomend this
