On tap at the brewpub in Alpine.
Appearance: used motor oil with a durable beige colored head that leaves decent lacing.
Aroma: Mainly BBA affects, including, of course, bourbon, with hints of oak.
Flavor: Rich, wood-toned bourbon nearly overpowers the dark roasted grains. Slightly sweet.
Feel: Full body with good but low carbonation.
O: Very well hidden ABV. Heartily recommended.
Serving type: on-tap

3.74/5 rDev -7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Black body. Decent khaki head. A little leggy. Some lacing and good retention.
Smell - Vanilla is most prominent. Chocolate. Bourbon comes behind it all. Oak also strong.
Taste - Chocolate and vanilla again are strongest. Bourbon heat. Astringent oak. Sweet caramel begins to dominate the flavor as it warms. Shades of fruity flavors as well.
Mouthfeel - A bit of barrel heat. Medium body, not very thick for a stout.
Overall - It has all the components of a bourbon stout, but doesn't seem to come together.
Serving type: bottle
