Served on-tap at Bainbridge Street Barrel House during their 1st anniversary party. Reviewed from notes.

A - Pours black with a nice one and a half finger tall tan head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small trails of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of warm bourbon, strong chili heat, room temperature chocolate, vanilla beans, fresh ground cinnamon and a bit of light booze. Was really hard to finish my glass because it smelled so incredible.

T - Starts off with a quick hit of chocolate, caramel and vanilla sweetness quickly being joined by hints of cinnamon, chillies, drying oak and smooth bourbon burn. Finish is pretty sweet with some heat, lingering for quite awhile. Not as intoxicating as the nose but still really damn good.

M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Despite the big, roasty body it was still really smooth, only a bit of booze creeping in at the end of each sip.

O - This might be the best chili stout I have ever had. It packs all of the flavors I enjoyed in the base beer and the bourbon was strong but not over the top. I really loved the choice of rye barrels for this one, really brought it all together. I would love to have this again in the future.

Serving type: on-tap
