on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black color, brown rim head, flares of lace. The beer is the consistency of Karo Syrup. The taste is heavy bourbon malt that is sweet, sweet, and more sweet. Edge and carbonation are very light, leaving one with dessert in a bottle. But like a rich dessert, 6 oz. is plenty.

Full bodied with luscious mouthfeel, above average carbonation. Finishes smokey with bourbon notes. Pretty interesting.

750 mL bomber. The pour is a dark brown work some good dark khaki head and a minimal lace. The aroma is very licorice based. There is a strong woodiness and a great vanilla. The smokiness is really profound here. Good roasty malt. The flavor is delicious. There is a wonderful bourbon character. The vanilla and licorice pop through the duration of the flavor. The love the dark fruits. The mouth feel is thick and viscous with a great carbonation and a lovely mouth feel. I love this beer. The aftertaste is smokey and bitter. Just great light vanilla and lovely bitter roasty tones.
