Beautiful black body. Dark tan head, ~1 finger. Decent retention for the style and on tap.
Bourbon bourbon and bourbon on the nose, with some chocolate malt and vanilla. Barley and cream in the background.
Very hot beer cold. Tons of bourbon, some chocolate. As it warms, vanilla and coffee really start to come through. Some dark fruit, roast barley, cream, and slightly sour oak. Wood and tobacco.
She's a hot beer; no hiding the ABV. Long, sticky finish. Smooth and thick, certainly for the style. Medium sting, but no foaming.
Incredibly complex BBA Stout. Not as thick and chewy as BCBS, but with deeper character and flavor. IMO a step above KBS. Can't wait to see how age mellows the bourbon heat in this beauty.
Serving type: on-tap
