American Brown Ale aged in Bourbon Whiskey Barrels.
Purchased from The Party Source, online.
An extremely dark brown, almost black, pour with a very small head of foam that quickly dissipated to a ring around the glass and some islands near the middle.
The bourbon is up front in the smell with vanilla also pretty dominant. A light note or 2 of dark fruits, a note or 2 of dark chocolate and a honey sweetness.
It tastes of bourbon and vanilla, light note of chocolate, honey like sweetness. No alcohol taste that I can detect but there's definitely some warming going on. On a sadder note, the carbonation is near zero. It hurts the mouthfeel but the flavours are interesting and put the hurt at a minimum.
Good stuff, but I *think* some light to medium light carbonation would have drawn out the flavours more precisely.
