smooth not strong at all
Good flavors, a bit thin. Enjoyable.
Definitely could smell the coffee with a light chocolate scent. Upon tasting it has a nice coffee taste but tastes more of an original beer. Not a bad one. But I think this one is an acquired taste.
Coffee chocolate in the begins but theb the bourbon comes through strong at the end! Delish!
very good. liked the 2016 a bit better but this was still very good
Good not great
smooth and creamy, flavors are a bit more subtle than most BA stouts.
Nice stout, but a little thin.
should have more body. still good tho
maybe needed to age more. just a little harsh
Last Merkin I had was 2016 & this is completely different. 2016 was more of a dark strong ale: amber in color with fruity cherry notes. 2019 is a true stout: dark chocolate, dark roast coffee and rich toffee. Great flavor profile, but still a little thin.
A little thin bodied, but can still taste some of the delicious bourbon
was ok…not really a fan
party in my mouth
not my favorite but still good
