On tap at Max's today.
The beer pours a blackish brown color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is impressive, and I'm getting a considerable amount of bourbon on the nose. Otherwise, there's dark chocolate, coffeee and vanilla. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, but there is also some noticeable licorice that is a nice touch, and helps to counter the moderate sweetness in this beer. The amount of flavor this beer delivers is impressive. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a long, slightly boozy finish. Alcohol is noticeable, but seems to be pretty well integrated into the flavor profile.
Pretty tasty beer. Reminds me a bit of a bourbon barrel aged version of the dragonstooth stout from these guys.
Serving type: on-tap
