look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Almost inky. Small khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Really bourbony. Fudgy chocolate. Vanilla. A little licorice.

Taste - More chocolate than the nose. The bourbon kicks in. Sharp woody bourbon. Licorice. Bitter coffee finish. Pretty sweet.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Boozy. Nothing terribly offensive for the style, though.

Overall - Really good stuff. Good barrel and a tasty stout behind it.

Serving type: bottle

This was one of the best overall experiences ive had with a beachwood beer. As far as the taste of the beer, the subtle heat comes up first making way for a nice profile of the roasted malt character which gives off sweet flavors of vanilla, chocoalte, and subtle bourbon flavor. the taste finishes with complimentary bitter chocolate taste. The mouthfeel has a good amount of viscosity, feels like what im looking for in a BA imperial stout. One of the better stouts that was put into a barrel IMO.

Serving type: on-tap
