2015 vintage

L - Pours a thick black coffee body with an espresso tan head one finger head. The small carbonation bubbles give way to great lacing and retention on the head.

S - Roasted malts, dark chocolate and mild coffee to start out. Bourbon notes with vanilla and oak come on afterwards.

T - Great balance between the roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate with the bourbon, vanilla and oak.

F - Medium bodied and medium carbonation. To my liking, the body seems a bit thin.

O - Such a balanced beer. Definitely a treat.

Massive carbonation fires right out the bottle. Pours awesome though, not infected! Black, 3/4" beige head. Aroma of chocolate malt, chocolate-dark, some bourbon, very faint.

Taste brought more bourbon, mouthfeel was super chewy. Lots of roast, chewy, brings some oak. Carbonation above average, not a problem.

This was what I think of when I say a very good bourbon barrel stout, impressed.
