On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark, clear brown, with a small half inch head, and only a little bit of lacing.

Smells like plums, raisins, bourbon, vanilla, oak, and bourbon.

The bourbon flavor in this is incredibly well-integrated, very smooth, and mixes well with the vanilla, oak, caramel, brown sugar, figs, light chocolate. The ABV and booze is hidden incredibly well, just so smooth. Oh my god.

Medium bodied, could be slightly thicker I suppose. Low carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel.

This might have been better than any of the Framinghammer variants, this was just incredible.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a snifter. This was bottled a couple months ago.

Appearance: Pours a dark caramel/medium brown with a cherry hue, and leaves a finger of light tan head, which dissipates to a layer around the glass.

Smell: Dark fruits: plums, figs, raisins, mild chocolate, hint of vanilla sweetness.

Taste: Sweet bourbon barrel character upfront, dark fruits, a hint of chocolate, caramel. Well balanced. Drinkability is high.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium body. I'd like this to be a bit fuller, but not bad. FInishes smooth, and a bit sweet.

Overall: This is a nice, sweet doppelback that took some nice, balanced characteristics from the bourbon barrels. Very drinkable.
