22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep black color with a small foamy khaki head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- the most bourbon-forward stout I've smelled; tons of barrel, toasted coconut, vanilla. Undertones of roasted malt, chocolate & alcohol

T- taste follows aroma, bourbon dominant up front with tons of toasted coconut, vanilla & caramel. Mid-palate gives notes of chocolate and roast. The finish gives more bourbon that dominates the flavor and lingers of barrel juice

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly viscous mouthfeel and a warming finish

O- extending aging in bourbon barrels makes this a bourbon-heavy beer that is sure to please bourbon drinkers, quite unique
