Cask. Pours near black with a beige head. A bit hot and heavy on the bourbon, with big vanilla, coffee, and roasted malts as well. Not bad.

I had the Woodford Reserve version but this should probably be aliased to the Bourbon Stout entry since the liquors are the same. This beer was dark brown with a loose tan foam . The aroma was simply hot bourbon, the taste was the same with a heavy burn.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at District ChopHouse. Pours black with a large, fizzy brown head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma and flavor are so heavy of bourbon that very little malt, hops, or esters come through. This beer is very hot and harsh of bourbon, leaving little room to still call it a beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask - Black, tan foamy head. Fresh bourbon and vanilla oak nose with a soft roasty undercurrent. Rich bourbon flavors balance on a light wood and cocoa backbone throughout. Light to medium bodied with pillow soft carbonation. If you’re a fan of good bourbon...

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Black, rocky dark brown head. Aroma is all bourbon. Sweet bourbon, vanilla extract nose. Smooth, light bodied (well thinner than the original oatmeal stout). Finishes with a watered down ’whiskey with water’ burn. Nice roast, lots of vanilla, and a good bit of brownie batter all in the flavor profile.
