64 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Nice big khaki head. Settles to a thin collar.

Smell - Lots of oak. Dark chocolate. Woody. Kinda chaulky. Light bourbon.

Taste - Dark chocolate. Bitter woodiness. Lingering burnt malt. Bourbon and oak in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Remarkably easy to drink. Medium low carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - Tasty and approachable stout. Not a huge beer and not an intense barrel.

Backlogged entry, reviewed from notes. The appearance is pitch black with thick brown head and great head retention for the stature of this brew. The nose features heavy molasses, undeniable Jack character which brings some "rough" oaky notes. This is paired with chocolate, dark fruit, and more oak. The taste is ashy up front with definite charred barrel character. Heavy whiskey with a sweet malt profile. Roasted malt sneaks its way through at the end. The mouthfeel has higher than average carbonation and a relatively thin mouthfeel. Overall, this has a ton of flavor, but is somewhat harsh with the whiskey character.
