Not sure what is going on here but I pick up on some lacto funk. Possible infection?

From old, undated notes; had this on draft.

Black liquid.

Tan head; nice lace.

Bourbon & oak blast in the nose; boozy!

Thick mouthfeel.

Cloyingly sweet caramel & booze in the flavor; a hint of milk chocolate as it warms.

The base beer is dominated by the barrel. Pass.

This was sent time from mjmadsen21, major thanks on this one man! This beer poured out as a nice looking black color with a brown head on top. There is a moderate retention and lacing. The aroma on this beer is huge, it screams bourbon, it's sweet and boozy and strangely addictive. The taste of the beer follows the nose, lots of bourbon, chocolate and vanilla with a boozy wooden flavor in the finish. The mouthfeel is pretty slick, lightly carbonated and finishes with some ethanol heat. Overall I loved it, I think if anything there is maybe too much bourbon and it masks the a dual beer, but either way I thought it was great.
