On tap at Boombozz Indy. Dark amber color. Smelled sweet, malty, and had a ton of bourbon on the nose. The taste was one big bourbon bomb. The base beer was totally overpowered by the bourbon. Pretty sweet. Sweeter than regular Wee Mac, but no complexity at all, just one big bourbon bomb. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and it felt like I just did a shot of watered down bourbon. Overall, it wasn't that it was bad, just very one dimensional. I like boombozz, but they serve their beer too cold for a "craft" bar. Would've liked to try this at a warmer temperature, but circumstances wouldn't allow it. Worth trying for 5 bucks for the pint, but don't get overly excited about it.
