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

Pours dark brown/black and sits pitch black in the glass with a very thin dark brown layer of frothy foam.

Chocolate, vanilla, coconut, roasty, and some bourbon heat.

Sweet creamy coconut, chocolate, roast, and a subtle but warming bourbon heat.

Heavy-bodied, light carbonation, creamy sweetness, silky smooth roasty bitterness.

Overall, a damn good beer and the bourbon gives this worth sampling more than once.

Pours out black with a tight finger of light khaki head. Sour mash smell up front. Vanilla, coconut, milk chocolate, Bourbon and oak. Medium to thin mouthfeel, minimal sweetness and dry. Pretty delicious.
