On cask for the 4th Anniversary event at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on this one. Smell is of dark roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, and toasted marshmallows. Taste is much the same with a high amount of woody and ashy bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great smell but the flavor is off and the mouthfeel is pretty lacking in my opinion. I am also not getting any real bourbon aromas or flavors from this one.
