Dark brown with a little light foam. Nice roasted malt and coffee aroma but I don’t get any bourbon. Taste is roasty malt, bourbon, caramel and some coffee. The bourbon isn’t as pronounced the Ale. Nice barrel aged stout. Enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle into a Rodenbach Grand Cru glass. Pours Mahogany dark brown with modest head and lace. Aroma of milk and dark chocolate, roasty malts and a hint of bourbon. Medium carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of roasty malts, liquid smoke, lime zest, slight bourbon, oak, cola, tart berries. Overall a wonderful aroma showcasing chocolate with a taste that can catch one off guard with sour notes, leading to a brain fart, but not a bad one!
