Fluffy dark khaki head. Dark mahogany, cola body.
Bourbon barrel smell at the forefront. Powdery dark chocolate and mildly sweet dark fruit follows.
Light, almost watery, mouthfeel. Some might be turned off by such a light stout, but I think it works perfectly with this beer.
Fudge-chocolate, oaky taste. Slight maple or maybe molasses sweetness lingers. Hardly notice the alcohol. Very easy drinking stout (especially for being barrel-aged).
If you like stouts or barrel-aged beers, you need to try this. It's amazing.
