drank at Westbrook on 7/26/2016

This pours a really nice creamy dark, dark brown body with a thin tan head. Really nice aroma of the nuts and coconut. Really cocoa-potent which I love. The coconut is subtle in the nose and a little more prevalent in the taste. The taste is where the bourbon and oak and vanilla really shine. The flavors are molded really well together. Nothing earth shattering in boldness, but a nice smooth well balanced bba stout. Would love to have one of these to age. Really getting more and more impressed with the WB barreling.

Poured from Bomber, pitch black pour, thin dark khaki head..
nose is strong on coconut and rich bourbon ....
taste is a nice amount of coconut upfront, which quickly (compared to Prop 13 and Snowed In) fades into the nutty flavors that finish it.... Bourbon is very present but balanced, in no way "hot"....
A nice mouthfeel with medium thickness
Overall an excellent beer, very balanced among different flavors, also well balanced in that there's some sweetness but not so much you couldn't kill the bottle in a sitting ...

On Tap @ Westbrook:

Pours thick and dark with minimal head. Even cold the nose is lovely with coconut, chocolate, and bourbon...surprise! lol
Very smooth with lost of bourbon but not hot at all. The chocolate and coconut seem to mesh well with the barrels and this drinks easy. Wish I could have gotten another pour!

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a snifter. smells of bourbon and chocolate with a hint of coconut. Taste like chocolate and bourbon up from with almonds in the back end. Coconut comes through as a mouth wide aftertaste. Great beer!
