Special firkin tapping and sampled via cask drawn at the Hinterland brewery/brewpub in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown colored stout with a creamy beige head that remained intact throughout the glass. Aroma of toasted chocolate malt, light mocha, very light maraschino cherries, and a touch of vanilla. Taste is quite smooth, medium bodied with more bourbon and cherry flavor than aroma, yet still has most of the profile of their Luna Stout. Finish is quite smooth with a lingering bourbon, vanilla and light cherry aftertaste. Any coffee presence is hidden in the finish.
