3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Specialty stout on draft at Church Brew Works. Not overly bourboned like most barrel aged stouts. The barrels were 2nd use barrels so the bourbon is a bit more subdued. Church also doesn’t use a ton of dark malts so the beer is a bit thinner. It does go down smooth though.

On tap. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, roast. Flavor of bourbon, vanilla, a touch of coconut and sweet malt, light roast. Pretty solid bourbon barrel sweet stout. Very drinkable for the style.

Draft at Church Brew Works. Hint of bourbon in nose and little in flavor. Maybe some hint of vanilla flavoring as well. Thin feel for a stout, light body, lacking bite for stout. Decent tasting brew, easy to drink, not what one would expect from a sweet stout.
