On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, cookie dough, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, cookie dough, vanilla, char, bourbon, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is very good beer that has great barrel aged characteristics that work very well with the base beer.

Serving type: on tap.
