Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours jet black with a decent one finger tall cream colored head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of warm bourbon, dark roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, molasses and a bit of dark fruit. A bit slow to develop but decent enough once it does.

T - Starts off with the vanilla and chocolate sweetness quickly being joined by the molasses, dark fruits, dark roasted malt and mild bourbon burn. Finish is a little sweet with some light dryness from the booze, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium-Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, dark feel with a bit of booze burn at the end of each sip.

O - I would say this is more of mild bourbon porter. The bourbon profile is quite restrained and the base flavors are still quite noticeable. Haven't seen this one before, glad I tried it while I had the chance.
