Deep brown-black pour with a thin white head. The aroma is lovely. Soft cocoa and a bit of light oak. Moderate barrel character and some light vineousness. A touch of dark malt mid-palate. Some toffee and a bit of light cocoa. Soft and a little bit sweet. Pretty nice really.

Solid beer, smooth, Carmel, chocolate, complex. Beer is sweet and pours with little head. A very nice beer but may not be the best choice for similar beers at this price point, however I would buy again

Best Before Dec ’15 - Dark molasses caramel, vanilla and bourbon on the nose. A burst of bourbon is quickly overwhelmed my brown sugar, chocolate & roasty malts and a remarkable smooth finish. The barrel makes another appearance with a mild heat that rests on the tongue. I am very intrigued by the delicious toffee sweetness this beer posseses. There is a rough feeling it leaves on the tip of my tongue that detracts slightly from its delicious silky texture.

Poured a black in color with a tan head. Quite tastey, but lighter on the bourbon barrel qualities.

375 ml bottle. Pours a black with a bubbly tan head. Immediately smell coffee and bourbon. You get bourbon booze, vanilla, coffee, and chocolate. A little more boozy than smooth. Bubbly carbonation on the palate. It’s very good and would mellow with age.
