ctipping (2125) - Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Black body. Aroma is oak, some bourbon, dark chocolate and black malt. Tastes of bourbon with a heavy dose of oak. Chocolate and roast. Low sweetness, but not bitter either. Smooth creamy finish. Lingering vanilla. Medium heavy. Pretty good, but also pretty alcoholic.

Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is bourbon barrel, roasted malt, bready, chocolate, not too boozy but enough of that bourbon aroma there to make it good. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head, I’d say it’s clear but opaque. Taste is very nice, bourbon, roasted malt, milk chocolate, barrel, bready, not boozy but bourbony flavor, lovely. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light carbonation, bourbon and roasted malt aftertaste. Overall, this is dangerously smooth and the bourbon does not overtake the Schwarzbier but compliments it greatly. Well done.

Appearance is dark and smells of chocolate and bourbon. It has a rich coffee and malt taste and the bourbon takes it to a new level. Very nice brew.
