4.36/5 rDev -1.1%
A: oily black beer produced a quick finger of dark brown foam, which slimmed into a filmy mocha collar; oily sheen down glass with an occasional mote of brown lace
S: rich sugars and dark malts accompanied by bourbon's whiskey airs - chocolate, vanilla, molasses, oak, and smoke
T: molasses sweetness for sure, bourbon enriches the sweetness with warm booze notes; roasted chocolaty malts aplenty, slightly charred with hints of smoky alcohol
M: full-bodied without being too heavy, silky and slick; bourbon wafts hit the roof ; some tingle on the tongue; linger of smoke and wood o'er moderately sticky finish
O: bourbon barrel aging a stout is a fairly surefire win so long as the base stout is of reasonable quality - all that applies here - the brown sugar and molasses ensure this is a sweet-drinking stout, and if you like molasses, you can rest assured that it is asserted here. The use of smoked malts is probably where this beer becomes hit-or-miss for some. The smoke is apparent on the nose and palate.
