Blue Mountain Brewery Dark Hollow
Blue Mountain Brewery
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout
ABV: 10 percent
Appearance: Poured from the tap at Tortilla West, this beer pours a silky opaque black color with a brown head.
Aroma: The aroma on this beer is not as big as you would imagine. There are hints of bourbon and chocolate, but nothing over the top.
Taste: The aroma is definitely deceiving on this beer. Flavors of vanilla, coconut, and bourbon are quickly detected and keep its taster going back for more.
Mouthfeel: For a barrel-aged stout I would have expected this beer to have more of a mouthfeel. It is a bit thin and has a boozy finish.
Drinkability: The thin mouthfeel on this beer makes it incredibly easy to drink, which can be very dangerous with its high ABV.
Pairing: An aged gouda or cheesecake.
