look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Wax-dipped 22oz bomber split into glasses with my brothers.
A: Pure, jet black; tan head settles into a consistent ring.
S: Big, sweet bourbon notes; clear vanilla and caramel dominate, toffee as well. Some nice roasted malt aromas and some bready notes too.
T: Clear, sweet caramel, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, hint of char and roast, butterscotch, and oak. There is minimal burn, but you do taste just a bit of the alcohol, which nicely balances the sweetness. The finish has more bourbon.
MF: Creamy & viscous medium/full body with lower carbonation.
O: Impressive for a first-try, local barrel-aged stout. The bourbon character is phenomenal, and this is already balanced nicely.

A: Pours a deep, dark brown/black. Tall medium brown head that fizzes out very quickly. Zero lacing and minimal retention.
S: Heavy dark fruits combined with caramel. Oaky too. Has a very boozy, sugary quality to it but at the same time the aroma isn't very strong. Hard to explain. It smells like a strong brew but without a bold aroma. You can just tell it's hiding something.
T: Huh, very interesting. Strong boozy dark fruits and caramel up front. Dark fruits border on the sour at times. Heavy chocolate too. Loads of oak, in the finish and aftertaste. It's almost like a spicy woody flavor. More boozy dark fruits linger in the aftertaste along with hints of charred oak here and there.
M: Heavy and thick. Period.
O: Definitely a dark fruit-heavy stout. The borderline sourness that I sometimes get tells me that this one may be showing some signs of infection. At this point it's still quite good though, a boozy fruity RIS bomb for sure.
