Tap. This was surprisingly thin and watery. I’m used to my bourbon stouts being big and heavy. The flavor was good- lots of chocolate with a good bourbon flavor and it went down smoothly but I would prefer some more body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.65l bottle. Black body, light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, cream, cocoa and some smoke. The taste is very balanced among the chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, dark fruits, floral hops and the oak. The body could be a bit thicker, but it’s still an awesome beer.
