4.46/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5
A: Dark dark brown, large dark tan head
S: Very upfront sweetness, bourbon
T: Chocolate, bourbon, maple, an interesting layer of spiciness from the rye, vanilla. The overall flavor is pretty strong but well balanced and very smooth
M: Kind of thin. Not as thick as I would have liked it and the carbonation was also a little high.
O: Really delicious stout. I tend to prefer beers like this in the 13% range and I think a really good bourbon barrel aged stout at 9% is difficult to pull off. The mouthfeel wasn't perfect but the smell and complexity of the taste more than made up for it.
