look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

32 oz brown glass grumbler acquired 8 days ago at Alesmith and served into a conical Guinness pint glass in a tasting at me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are very high given the brewery.

Served straight from the refrigerator and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a one finger khaki-tan head of nice cream and thickness, but merely decent retention. Body colour is an extremely dark hazy ruby. No yeast particles are vislble. no bubble show. Lacing is decent.

Sm: Bourbon, caramel, toasted malt, nuts (chestnut), some fruit (maybe cherry), vanilla, and oak. Yet all the notes are subtle and understated. A mild strength aroma.

T: Caramel, vanilla, a hint of nut, buried fruit, and oak right on the finish - but not much bourbon. Well balanced, if understated. I quite like it, but I did expect more bourbon. No yeasty character or alcohol. Tasty.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with good presence on the palate. Good thickness. Good carbonation in spite of coming from a growler.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but not as complex as it would need to be to be truly great. Subtly done. Where's the bourbon?

B-

Serving type: growler
