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.

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.
