Pours dark brown with no carbonation and a small head. The nose is pure bourbon with lots of vanilla and oak that balances against a dark and roasty stout. The nose has a slight vegetal aspect to it. The beer itself follows the nose with a strong astringent bourbon up front that has loads of vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate. As I describe it, I'd think I'd enjoy this more than I did but it just didn't blend together well. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slight astringency in the finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #345/522.

Appearance - Black body. Small khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Bright wine aroma. White wine. Strong oak. Chocolate. Black patent malt.

Taste - Chocolate, but immediately a sharp wine flavor. Slightly acidic. Oak. The wine flavor lingers. Kinda sweet. Dry winey finish.

Mouthfeel - A little sharp from the wine. Sweet from both beer and wine.

Overall - The wine wipes out the stout flavor and leaves wine. A little too strong for me.
