Served from a 2013 12oz bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip.
Appearance- Black with quick bubbly off-mocha head that left some good lacing.
Smell- Some vanilla and caramel from the bourbon, milk chocolate, light oak, light booze, no real hop presence, decent chocolate malt backbone.
Taste- Mildly bitter chocolate, vanilla, sweet bourbon, caramel and chocolate malts,super light hops. Light whiskey tinge. Lightly bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel- Pretty well carbonated, which I wasn't expecting from the pour. Lightly hot. Medium body.
Overall- Solid BA stout. A little hot and a little over carbonated, but still quite pleasant.
