brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a somewhat thin dark brown color with a minimal off-white head. S: I could smell the butter in this as soon as I opened the bottle. Diacetyl pretty much dominates the nose and prevents any bourbon or stout aromas from coming through. T: For a bourbon barrel aged stout, this beer is incredibly favorless. Watery and bland with maybe a bit of roast and chocolate. M: The body is just as disappointing as the rest of the beer: thin and lowly carbonated. D: Another piece of evidence that -bals do not always make a beer better/good.
