Thanks go out to wagenvolks for getting this beer out my way. Shared at a recent tasting and served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.
Pours a dark brown color with a thin, fizzy tan head and some sparse lacing afterward. The nose carries some brown sugar alongside a bit of intermingling chocolate and roast. Bit of a nutty character is there along with a moderate whiskey-barrel presence. The flavor isn’t quite as pungent or integrated, with some oak and whiskey plus background chocolate and roast. The feel is nice--medium body that is slightly-creamy with light carbonation. Overall, definitely a pretty solid brew.

22 ounce bottle pours a dark brown, almost black color, aromas of light pecans, roasted malt, booze, oak, light vanilla, and some light coco. flavors are the same, not much nuts in the flavor, kind of dominated by the booze taste, but all the aromas are there. Glad I finally got to try this one, a really nice beer overall that I would love to drink again.
