Reviewed from notes while down in Tampa last weekend, sampled on tap during Cycle's barrel aged beer night.
A- Black as tar into the plastic cup provided with a creamy dark mocha head to about one finger high. Decent head retention and it eventually falls to a frothy ring leaving fine sheets of thin lace.
S- Somewhat faint to me for this type of the beer, first beer of the day too. Some nice dark cocoa, fudge and hints of whiskey oak barrels.
T- Dark, bitter cocoa nibs lead the way for me with a barrage of chocolate and cocoa powder. Some ripe cherry fruit hints but no raisin or spiciness like some brews can have. Bourbon is here but integrated well with oak, whiskey and a slight vanilla feel.
MF- Thick and chewy bodied with a heavy whipped creamy texture. Fairly warm whiskey bite and the medium level of carbonation allows the flavors to come through well.
Another impressive marriage of whiskey barrels and stouts. Something about the aroma wasn't quite up to par for me but the flavor made up for it.
Serving type: on-tap
