Had on tap at Three Floyds into a snifter/tulip consecutively after the regular Moloko.

Poured jet black, not much of a head to speak of aside from some bubbles forming a ring. Naturally with no head, there wasn't really any lacing left behind.

Aroma was pretty much straight bourbon, quite hot on the nose. I didn't really perceive any of the wonderful vanilla and oak notes that usually come with barrel aging. The stout itself barely managed to break through the bourbon but slight notes of chocolate made it through.

Taste was again straight bourbon. This time I struggled to pick up any of the stout properties. It tasted like I was drinking bourbon on the rocks. Quite hot on the way down. It's like all the characteristics of bourbon I don't like were transferred to the beer and none of the good came with it.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied, smooth, but the hot alcohol made it a bit bracing.

I was very disappointed in this one. I normally love bourbon aged beers but this one failed greatly. I'd take the regular Moloko over this any day. Double your serving size as well.

2008 Moloko aged in Woodford Reserve barrels.

On tap at the Brewpub served in a small goblet.

A black liquid with dark amber highlights and a thin ring of mocha bubbles sits in front of me.

The nose is a little muted. I'm getting oak and a little cocoa and bourbon.

The first sip gives me a ton of bourbon, oak, semi-sweet cocoa, malted milk balls, and a little coffee

Mouthfeel is very slick.

I enjoy this beer, but I've never been too big on barreled milk stouts. One glass is all I can do right now.
