Sampler at the source. These guys make good beer. Nice barrel treatment here with a subtle hint of wood and whiskey. Not an overpowering whiskey flavor but enough to add some complexity. Touch of the whiskey sweetness with none of the alcohol. Purple fruit and cherry flavors. Complex and varies particularly as it warms. Really nice.

Draft at Mekong. Pours black, slight head. Aroma is chocolate, slight coffee, a hint of booze, and maybe a touch of cherry. Flavor is a match, with oak and vanilla notes coming into play as well. A very nicely executed bourbon barrel stout, with everything in balance.
