look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Served a dark black color with a half-finger of bubbly head. The head fades down quickly leaving behind a bit of lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of lots of Bourbon, oak, and vanilla with some roasted chocolate malts and a touch of residual sweetness and booze.

T - Starts off with some roasted chocolate malts with some Bourbon, vanilla, and oak coming through. Through the middle some more Bourbon comes through with some light residual sweetness. The finish is a mix of more Bourbon with some more roasted chocolate malts, vanilla, and booze.

M - Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Feels smooth with a warming and sweet finish.

D - Very drinkable. Really nice Bourbon flavor mixed in with the stout base.

Serving type: on-tap

This beer has a great look to it and awesome lacing but the nose is seriously like rotting orchard, strange grape musk, with an acerbic chocolate waft

The taste is unbearable and feels like drinking while huffing nail polish, I cannot recommend this. The appearance is the only redeeming factor. Pretty but ugly on the inside. Just like all those color guard chicks you pined after so hard.

Black pour, less head than regular Drakonic, which looked excellent, a tough act to follow. Aroma, nice, reveals the heavy roast of the base beer, but a nice tame bourbon chocolate tinge to it.

A little bit of the dark fruit comes out in the taste moreso than I would have liked, dates/figs/raisins combine with the alcohol to give me visions of belgian strong dark ales with fusel like alcohol. Thankfully, the heat stays off this one, but those sherry like dark fruit notes compromised my enjoyment of this slightly.

I guess the word is they aged this in several different bourbon barrels. I was guessing Evan Williams before I heard that, but I'm pretty much just throwing darts at that point.
