Thick creamy head, dark body.

Chocolate, booze, and wood on the nose. Vanilla and cream impressions from the whisky.

Fairly thin and boozy up front; the bourbon lingers throughout, eventually melding with the base stout smoothly.

At first, it comes across almost like spiked egg nog. The booze is perhaps a touch too prevalent for a beer. The base stout fights through from time to time.

Delicious, decadent, more of a dessert or a spirit than a beer. Not exactly what I expected, but very enjoyable.

L - Pitch back in all aspects with a finger of brown head

S - Heavenly. Marshmallow fluff, graham cracker crust, and dark chocolate. Some oak from the barrel, but bourbon is surprisingly lacking

T - A turn for the worse on the taste and all of those amazing s'more flavors are gone and in its place is pure alcohol and overly sweet bourbon. The finish is full of sticky molasses.

F - Not as thick as I'd hoped for a BA stout, but good enough. Alcohol presence doesn't help with drinkability

O - Based on the aroma, I assume the base beer is unreal, but for now, the barrel aging has eliminated the base dessert flavors and left a alcohol-soaked stout in its wake.

Poured out as a black color with a thin brown head on top. The smell of is sweet and very big on the bourbon aromas. The taste of the beer is packed with sweetness, and bourbon, subtle flavors of the marshmallow and graham cracker. The feel of the beer is a little thinner than I thought it'd be, but still very good. Overall this was really nice.
