Served in shaker pint at Ashley's in Westland, MI. Little head, mostly a white ring of foam around the edges. Color of dark amber, brown red shot through with brown. Smells of malt and bourbon, with more of the bourbon upfront. Taste is the opposite. There's a sweet tang, sugared dark fruit, then the bourbon after that. It's there, but not overpowering like other BBA ales. The bourbon heat makes you think the ABV is going to put you out, but this is smooth and low, finishes fine and dry. If you can find this one, get your hands on it.
