look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

On tap at Local Option on 12/14/12, served in a snifter.

Pour: Pitch black, with some tan head that quickly dissipates to a collar. No lacing.

Smell: Big bourbon bite up front, followed by some dark chocolate, and more booze. Roasted malts on the finish.

Taste: Follows the nose with boozy bourbon up front, some dark chocolate, and a light marshmallow. Lots of roasted malts. Finish is boozy bourbon and caramel.

Mouthfeel: Lighter, with nice carb. Booziness is warming and hot. I can imagine this was very hot when it was first released.

Overall: A nice, lighter bourbon barrel stout. A little hot still, and I'm not sure the body can suppor the barrel aging.

Serving type: on-tap
