Schlafly "Bourbon Barrel Ale" (Special Release)
Saint Louis Brewery - Maplewood, Missouri USA
American Strong Ale (ABV 7%)

[Best served in a Snifter]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a murky medium brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy light brown head that reduced to just a thin film on top and did have good sticky lacing.

The aroma was fairly mild of a toasted cereal malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, vanilla, dark fruit and a hint of bourbon.

The taste was sweet and malty with a nice note of caramel to start and finished sweetly acidic with hints of dark fruit and toffee and had a mild bourbon alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor was only around for a short while after the swallow and was mostly of a sweet fruit and malts.

Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body with a creamy, syrupy texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall a nice smooth a mellow bourbon aged ale with no heavy alcohol taste at all.
