Tap in Atlanta, Ga
Can smell the lactose, sweet malty. Smells like ice cream float with a shot of bourbon. Silky smooth mouth feel with hints of coffee, toffee, bourbon. Very easy to drink, scary for a 10% abv.

Bomber - Vintage 2014. Near black in color with a small frothy tan head. Bourbon, oak and vanilla cream aroma. Heavy roasted flavor with dark chocolate, vanilla ice cream, some ripe fruit and a bourbon finish. Creamy texture and well carbonated. Goes down way too smooth for 11% abv. Great tasting stout!

On tap at Cafe Hollander. Very dark pour, dense tan head with nice lacing. A very creamy, smooth beer with lots of oak mixed in with roast flavors. Generally sweet, but it dries out in the end with just a hint of hop finish. Nice.

Bottle at Winking Lizard Tavern (Independence). Winking Lizard had nothing new on tap, but they had a great bottle selection. Headed by this beer. Pours a deep black color like heavy Motor oil. Boozy with a bourbon backbone. Lots of thick chocolate with vanilla and some coffee. Some good sweetness. The Bourbon is very noticeable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Outstanding beer. Pours a deep brown, small khaki head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of cinnamon. Taste for me coffee stood out, and bourbon was in the background with hints of vanilla and chocolate. I got no alcohol burn at all. This was the first time trying this and I was very pleased. The part I’m confused on is that it was a 12 oz bottle and I thought was yar round. This says winter seasonal and is a bomber in the pic. Odd?
