3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Country Boy & Beer Engine. Dark brown almost black with a tiny tan head. Aroma is big time bourbon and oak with chocolate, vanilla, coffee, black malt and some burnt sugar. Flavor is hot alcohol, semi-sweet chocolate and caramel with some light roasty bitterness. Medium to full body with soft carbonation and a slightly thin mouth feel. This one is a hot, bourbon bomb but I like that, great bourbon character blends great with the base beer.

On tap @ Against The Grain. Kind of a total accident that I got to try this, but Iíll take it. Black in color with a tan head. Definitely more smoke character than I normally like in a beer, but it does have some good bitter dark chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, and cooked fruits. A decent kick of bourbon to it. Pretty sweet tasting. Maybe some coffee and roast and smoke bitterness. Itís okay, I guess just not my thing.

750ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a bit of head. Needs some time to breathe. Smoked rye aroma and flavor. A very intriguing and unique mix of flavors.

The best among the 2000 beers that I tried. Not a smoked as expected and the vanilla is kept well under control. No taste of pure alcohol.

Smells almost like a barrel aged barleywine. Very bourbony aroma and taste. Thicker mouthfeel. Decent but nothing special.
