Rock Bottom (King of Prussia) - Bourbon + Beer = Amazing!
Rock Bottom's Nightmare on Bourbon Street
Served in a brandy snifter...
Appears an opaque black with a fluffy, light tan head that slowly fades into a floating cap. Tons of scattered lacing s left around the glass.
Smell...holy mother of pearl! I adore Woodford Reserve bourbon. Add in some cocoa powder and nuts and that's the aroma. Strong bourbon and oak pulling through.
Taste is of the aromas with a bitey oak flavor of sweet booze.
Mouthfeel is medium full bodied, silky smooth, boozy with the obvious bourbon clinging to the palate. Lip smacking sweetness...mmm!
Sadly, it was reported that Rock Bottom kicked this cask this past weekend. Keep your eyes and ears alert for any re-release of this, or the outstanding Bourbon Aged Barleywine.
