Pours brownish black with very little head....no lacing to speak of. Rather thin for a bourbon stout...but it is the best beer they have to offer IMO.
Cola colored with no head. Nose of vanilla and cleaner. This beer is dominated by the vanilla extract with a thin bourbon flavor and very little stout character. This is an example of how putting more in a beer makes a worse beer. Frank (4194) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Brown more so that black. Foamy white head. Light and a bit roast, a little raisiny. Carbonation is quite mild and the beer comes off as watery. Bourbon character is sort of ham fisted and clashes w/ an almost Belgian-ish yeast character that seems like the result of being fermented to warm. This is just not a well made beer. My rating is probably too high.
