12 oz. bottle poured into a craft pint.
A- Black, dark red highlights. Brown head retains at a quarter inch. Slight lacing.
S- Vanilla, cocoa, roast, slight bourbon.
T- Mild, sweet roast. Vanilla, bourbon and chocolate.
M- Full body. Smooth, and clean. Easy drinker, not like most bourbon barrel beers. Boozy burn isn't there.
O- Decent. Mild in all sense for this style. Light on the flavors and complexity.

Had this while waiting entirely too long for my takeout Thai food to be ready. Second offering from these guys. Nice brownish/black color. Relatively mild bourbon flavor, could've used a little more...some slight pecan notes in there as we'll. Faint aromas considering the genre, expected stronger. Not as smooth of a mouthfeel as you'd expect either. Decent, maybe a little underrated on here.

I was a little disappointed by this. If you want a good Bourbon Stout I'd suggest Alltech's brewing. Their brewery is shared with Town Branch bourbon distillery so the barrels they use are fresh. Literally the barrel empties 5 year old bourbon, and hours later is filled with a batch of beer to age. They have perfected the art of bourbon barrel aging for beer.

Poured into a snifter
A: Black/bronze with oak highlights. No head to speak of. Light lacing.
S: Chocolate, espresso, bourbon, oak.
T: Smooth, semi-sweet chocolate. Oak-y. Smokey. More like chocolate coffee. No bourbon in the taste. The high ABV is well-hidden. A bit watery.
M: Light to medium with low carbonation.
O: Was really hoping for a more robustness. Really missed the bourbon.
