3.63/5 rDev -16.2%
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Inky black. Nice mocha head. Thin collar.
Smell - Not a ton of bourbon, but it's got a bright whiskey aroma. Vanilla. Sharp whiskey. Dark chocolate.
Taste - Dark chocolate and fudge. Sweet. Caramel. Sharp whiskey. Astringent oak. Nutty odd oaky finish.
Mouthfeel - Heavy. Medium low carbonation.
Overall - I expected to like this better, but it's not any better than the Apple Brandy. I don't love the barrel again, but it's a good base stout.

Bottle shared by me at Bob's tasting.
Pours a dark, ink-like black, with a half inch mocha head, and only a small amount of lacing down the glass.
Smells like vanilla, coconut, chocolate fudge, and bourbon.
The taste is similar. Very sweet, with sweet smooth bourbon, some vanilla, a little bit of coconut, and decadent chocolate flavors- tastes like fudge and brownie batter. Some roasted malt flavors are there, but the bitterness from that is washed away by how sweet it is. Stops just short of being cloying, though.
Medium bodied, could be a little thicker, I think. Almost no carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.
Westbrook continues to wow me, I can't wait to try the apple brandy version.

22oz bottle shared with a friend
A: Dark Chocolate brown, thin off white head,
S: Smoky, molasses, cedar
T: Campfire ash especially as it warms, smoked malts, leather, raisins, fig, bourbon heat that is stronger cold but mellows as it warms
M: Thin to medium body
O: It's an okay BA smoked stout. Not in the same stratosphere as any of the BAMC variants, and more reminiscent of Bo and Luke than Mexican Cake.

Pours a deep burnt black with brown highlights and a tan head. Minimal lacing.
The smell is notes of chocolate, oak, roast, and bourbon. A bit muted compared to the apple brandy.
Flavor is huge roasted malt with notes of chocolate and oak. Lots of bourbon, but not so much as to detract from the base.
Mouthfeel is thick and viscous with medium carb.
Very well done, and while it doesn't have the nuances of the apple brandy, it stands up on its own as a stellar example of the style. Westbrook continues to amaze.
