Poured pitch black with a nice tan head that didn’t hang around too long. Stong hits of alcohol and the wild turkey right from the start. Bourbon flavor is firm but not overwhelming. I’d love to know what the abv is on this one. My guess is 8%+. Oaky and malty it has a full and hard finish that went great with the burger I had for dinner. Worth a try for sure if you’re in LoDo.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Pours black with a small, fizzy, light brown head, diminishing, fair lacing.
Aroma is average malt (molasses, caramel, roasted), light hops (grass), average yeast
(leather) with notes of smoke and bourbon. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation
and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Very
similar to the non-Bourbon stout.

Deep molasses with frothy head. Strong whiskey notes accentuates the roast aroma--if only they had used a better whiskey!! Nice, velvety rich coffee roast with bourbon complements in flavor.

The bartender told me this was conditioned in Wild Turkey barrels. This was a fantastic beer, albeit a little green, I would love to have some of this to lay down and try again after a year or so. Strong alcohol aroma, immediately follwed by vanilla and oak when your nose calms down from the sting it just took. Lots of vanilla, with some nice whisky notes, licorice and a bit of molasses. This is tasty and creamy!
