This pours a clear black with ruby highlights all around the glass. A decent looking pour. Plenty of ecru head atop the body. The aroma is sweet bourbon oak along with plenty of malt. The flavors burst on the tongue with coconut quite strong from the bourbon barrels. The oak quality really stands out. Though this is classified an American strong Ale, I would call it a Bourbon Stout without the body. Tons of vanilla and bourbon characteristics are omnipresent. This is one awesome tasting beer. The mouthfeel is lighter than most, but the abv of 10% probably lightens it up a bit. The only thing that would improve with this is possibly a fuller mouthfeel, but I could care less since it is so amazing in the flavor department. If you like the taste of anything oaked, you will love this beer.
Serving type: on-tap
