4.73/5 rDev +8.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
Got this on an East Coast trip with BostonRyan and brought back to Chicago. 500ml bottle, only $6!! Poured into a FFF Teku.
A: Dark dark brown, nice tan head of 2+ fingers, great retention and lacing
S: Bourbon-forward but not overwhilemingly so. Also some roasted malts, toffee, dark chocolate, and coffee.
T: Complex taste. Lots of vanilla and oak, barrel flavor is huge here. Milk chocolate but not too sweet. Bourbon is there too but blends nicely without overwhelming. Roasty malts are present. Finishes with almost no heat, remarkable that it is 10% ABV.
M: Smooth, creamy, low-medium carbonation, perfect for the style, coats the tongue, damn perfect.
O: Wow, definitely happy to have had a bottle of this. Killer stuff, world class for sure. First non-lager I've had from Jack's Abby but they nailed it on the head. Just a great, great beer. Treat to have, would love to have it again.

4.25/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: deep brown, not black, and not fully opaque. Thin head, moderate lacing (alcohol limited is my guess).
S: when very cold, not much of an aroma. As it warms, there is malty, a little coffee and oaky bourbon.
T: When cold, the alcohol was not as well hidden. As it warmed it had nice roasted nutty character with really only moderate bourbon notes. This is not a bourbon bomb like BCBS, the flavors are more subtle.
M: rather thin and slippery. This is not a thick stout, it has the mouthfeel of a lager in many respects. Easy to drink.
O: terrific beer for what it is. Do not expect a monster thick, heavy bourbon flavored stout. This is a porter, it is more approachable, more drinkable and more subtle in all its flavors and smells.
