3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes of Bourbon, toasted malts, vanilla, cocoa, coffee. Good, but not nearly as robust or complex as other BA Stouts. This could probably be related to the low abv. I could easily have a few of these without the alcohol slowing me down.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25th May 2015: on-tap US pint during Happy Hour at the Yard House, Irvine. Served a bit too cold, but as it warmed a little the aroma and flavours burst forth. Black bodied with a tanned foam on top. Bourbon esters in the malty nose, Bourbon hints in the malty flavour: semi-sweet as it warms. A tad thin body wise but flavoursome and interesting.

Tap at toronados in San Francisco with commonmac and rosskyle and wildcard. Black with small tan head. Sweet nose with dark fruit. Taste is sweet and sour more than expected from a stout. Not creamy. Can taste those bourbon elements, only a little stout. Interesting and good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tons of bourbon on the nose. Chocolate, coconut vanilla, wood. Taste is fantastic, big bourbon flavors and rich stout. Only thing I wish is the mouth feel was bigger. This is a small stout, but big flavor punch

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.25 A: Black color. Just under one finger of frothy light brown head formed, but it fell quite quickly.
3.75 S: The nose on this is very nice, but the focus is definitely on the bourbon instead of the beer. The base offers modest amounts of roastiness, chocolate, and caramel with a touch of ash and butter. The bourbon is leathery, but clean without any sharpness. Touch of nondescript fruitiness, oak, vanilla, and perhaps a hair of peat.
3.25 T: Taste also features the bourbon. Pretty much tastes like the nose, except that the base beer is even more muted. On the drier side without much complexity.
3.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. This is really lacking in body and creaminess. It’s not bad, it just isn’t good either.
3.25 D: It’s worth a try I guess, but it’s not something worth revisiting.
