3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown to black pour with a tan head. The aroma has some nice oak and bourbon notes as well as some roasted malt. There is also a hint of licorice in the aroma. The flavor has some big oak and chocolate notes as well as some bourbon, maple and vanilla. As the beer warms I start to get a little bit of nut character. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

We waited for years, after first tasting this on draught & cask locally, for it to be bottled and sold. The wait was worth it. Absolute first-class.

750ml bottle: This one poured a very dark opaque brown color. There was just a bit of a tan head that doesn’t linger long or leave much lacing. The aroma is a little lighter than expected. Not too much bourbon to the nose. Bready, chocolate, roastiness, some pine and citrus hops. The taste is very good. The bourbon flavor is more subdued than some other bourbon barrel aged beers that I’ve had. Chocolate, some roastiness, somewhat bitter. Touch of sweetness in finish. Very Nice!

Draft in Athens, GA. Pours viscous black with thinner tan head. Smell is overwhelmingly bourbon and then some dark roasted malts. Taste is much the same with cola flavors. Seriously almost like a bourbon and coke. Or maybe I am just in Athens and have tailgating on my mind.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with orange glints; tan head. Aroma is rather bourbon. Med body, or nearly. Flavor is bourbon, dark malt, a little treacle, some dark fruit, a little coffee or chocolate or something. Tasty stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich burnt umber color with a two finger light khaki foam. The nose is soft with sweet chocolate and bourbon soaked tootsie roll, spicy vanilla bean and licorice. The palate follows... wow Im digging this lots of cola nut, round full soft mouthfeel, bourbon bite is apparent but dialed in with the roasted chocolate malt and traces of licorice, herbal spice and vanilla. Really loving this !
