look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
On-tap at the release in Alpine. Served in a taster glass.
A - Dark brown with a small brown head, a little lace, good retention. Didn't really take a long time to look at it as it was gone in a flash.
S - Dark roasty malt, brown sugar, chocolate, bourbon. Nice.
T - Nicely balanced sweetness from the chocolate and residual sugars with the slight bight of bourbon on the finish. There is a good chocolate backbone with supporting coffee, vanilla, and brown sugar flavors. Bourbon is not strong but well integrated.
M - Solid medium body, not too oily and not too thin. Very nice. Carbonation is lower moderate.
O - very tasty. Many of us waiting in line took turns sampling this in the pub and not one of us came back disappointed. I like it a bit better than the recent BA Token.
Serving type: on-tap

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.

3.74/5 rDev -7.2%
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.
