Deep black color with a small tan head and considerable lacing. Huge aroma of bourbon, vanilla, roasted malt, and some raisins. Flavor was very high on sweetness with dark fruits and a bourbon flavored finish slightly dry.

Bottle, pours opaque black with brown highlights, minimal off-white head. Massive oaky character on the nose, black strap molasses, chocolate, touch of vanilla. Woody dryness, chocolate, caramel, winter fruit taste. Dry, astringent finish, no hint of alcohol. Good, unique beer.

4 oz draft pour at ChurchKey. Black with light tan head, some brown hue around the edges. Aromas of roast, bourbon, dark chocolate. Tastes of coffee, roast, bourbon, dark fruit, caramel, oak. Medium body with a dry finish. Low carbonation. Bourbon isn’t in your face with this one.

Bottle thanks to John. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is dark chocolate roast, oak, booze. Medium mouthfeel with strong roast, sweet roasted malt and light bitterness. Very good.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Vanilla, bourbon and oak aromas. Sharp and thin with dark caramel, chocolate and bourbon upfront turning to warm espresso and vanilla in the lasting finish.

[5260-20130426] Tap. Bourbon barrel roasted wood malt aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown red-hued body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. Sweetened coffee malt and roasted wooden bourbon barrel flavour. Full body. Interesting to try. (7/3+/7-/3/15) 3.5
