4/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
On tap here at Stubbys, poured into a goblet.
Appearance: darkish muddy Brown, no head at all. No carbonation it seems.
Smell: bourbon, vanilla, some toffee notes. Definitely a sweet smell.
Taste: a sweet taste with some bourbon notes. Not an overpowering taste that slams you in the face but a more "hey, how's it going" vibe.
Mouthfeel: yeah, really no carbonation to speak of. Goes down cleanly, with only a slight aftertaste.
Overall: good, but the barleywine and bourbon barrel stout offerings are better from CW. Both offer more complex flavors and just stand out more amongst their peers for their offerings.
Serving type: on-tap

3.33/5 rDev -19.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: pours a dark mahogany color almost black. a finger and a half of a tan head that sticks around forever and leaves a strong sticky lacing. Completely opaque and dark
Smell: strong bourbon, mixed with vanilla and hints of toffee. some clove-like aromas along with an estery alcohol.
Taste: opens with strong tastes of bourbon, vanilla, and oak. transitions into a mess of sweetness, with toffee, dark chocolate and some dark fruit. ends with a clove taste. little to no alcohol in the taste
Mouthfeel: cloyingly sweet but also dry.
Overall: I got this thinking it might be a good base beer to let the bourbon shine and add some complexity, but to me it comes of overly sweet and a mess of similar tastes.
Serving type: bottle
