I had this off the tap last night at the Chophouse in Boulder, Colorado. It was quite nice; black as night, with a soft, smooth, but not very large tan head. It is not as intensely flavored as many stouts, but it isn't bland either. I'm sure I will drink it again.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap, Wild Turkey barrel, cask conditioned: This is the best whiskey barrel stout that I've ever had. Brown/black color with a nice head. Light malts and whiskey in the aroma. Full bodied, light bourbon taste at the end that is sweet and well balanced. This tastes like beer with bourbon flavoring, not like a shot was added to the beer like some examples of this style that I've had. Deep rich ending. Well done.
