Served in a snifter at Firkin.
I missed out on the small wave of bottles of this around here, so I was thrilled to see this stuff pop up as part of Firkin's Brash/Clown Shoes tap takeover. It pours a solid obsidian topped by a finger of off-khaki foam. The nose comprises chlorinated bourbon, light oak, cocoa, mild smoke, and thick roast. I've gotta say, that strangely chlorine-laden bourbon dominated in a bad way, but not bad enough to ruin things completely: just bad enough to make me generally unhappy. The taste brings in more of the same, luckily with much less chlorine and a helluva lot o' bourbon. There's hardly a hint of the smoke, though, which is decidedly disappointing. The body is a hefty medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a nearly chewy feel. Overall, a solid stout, very heavy on the barrel, but one that doesn't really showcase the smoke in any way whatsoever, instead opting for a heavy dose of bourbon barrel. It's not a strictly bad thing, just a thoroughly disappointing one.
Serving type: on-tap
