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.

3.63/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Deep brown, but not quite black. Some light. 1 finger tan head settles into a soft ring. Oily lacing.

S- Roasted oats, charred dark fruits of figs and black cherries. Not a tone of barrel character coming thru on the nose. Reminds me some of Stone IRS with the licorice. Some sharp notes cut through.

T- Just like the nose, but with some intense sugary sweetness. Vanilla and oak on the back end as the barrel finally steps up to the plate, and it does so in a pretty big way with the bourbon. Some brown sugar maybe. A little cloying at times. Mouth is syrupy and sticky. Probably due to the intense amount of sweet malt and sugars added here. Warmth in the back of the throat.

O- Pretty good. A little sweeter than I like. Prefer the style to have more roast and nutty character.
