3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Rock Dottom Denver, downtown. Cask version. Dark brown body with a large light tan head speckled with large bubbles. Light bourbon nose, some cream and a little too hot up the nose, burning a little bit. First drink is smooth, but then it gets hot with way too much bourbon. Very smooth otherwise, with some sweet toffee flavors.

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.

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.
