12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter

Pours jet black with one finger of dark brown head that fizzles to a thin collar with light lacing. Bright herbal hops are the first aroma I notice. Lots of fresh-ground coffee, cocoa, vanilla, and whiskey as well.

Taste was pretty much as expected. Bittersweet dark chocolate with a hint of dark roast coffee. Smokey vanilla and caramel. Then a fair amount of warming whiskey on the finish. Not overwhelming by any means, but there's no mistaking what this is. The body is a little heavier than medium, but not much. Lightly carbonated and very smooth. Somewhat thick and creamy, coats the mouth well. If this was just a bit heavier and fuller it would be near perfection for me.

Overall I liked it quite a bit. I wouldn't call it "boozy" but it's probably close. It's a sipper for sure, and a darn good one I'd say. I love whiskey and when I'm in the mood for a big strong stout I will definitely look for this one again.

12 oz. bottle split with a good friend. Have enjoyed this each time I've drank it, and want to support the local beer. Here goes the review.

A- Fairly aggressive pour into a Voodoo snifter yields a thin, light-brown head. Barely any light getting through. Viscous as can be. Spotty lacing with some nice legs (like my girlfriend).

S- Soft bourbon and rye. Lots of chocolate and an enjoyable roasty aroma that balances this out. Faint presence from the alcohol, though it is not offensively boozy.

T- Charred flavors. Roast with some faint alcohol. A little more bourbon presence on the flavor than there was on the aroma. Faint spiciness from the rye. There's also a bitterness that hangs around throughout the whole drinking process. Really interesting flavors here. Not mind-blowing, but they're still nice.

M- A tad oily for my preference. However, this beer is really smooth. Low carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Quite enjoyable, though far from perfect.

O- A nice offering from a local brewery. I remember enjoying this beer more with some age on it. There are three still left from the four-pack I purchased yesterday. Probably gonna lay these down for awhile and see how they develop. Will probably return for a re-review.
