Bottle. The bourbon flavor is sticky sweet and very prevalent up front in this beer. It is quite good, though I think it is best in small doses or else the sweetness might be overpowering. Great Winter beer.

Poured from bottle to glass. Deep copper hue with creamy off white hue that lingered. Aroma is tobacco, prunes, vanilla, oak, toffee, ethanol. Mouthfeel is nice with a full body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a nice bitter following and an ethanol finish. Overall this is a very nice brew.

Bottle #445 in a pint glass. Very boozy aroma with vanilla and fruity, almost pineapple undertones. The initial flavor is that of warmth and molasses. One can certainly taste the time and effort that was put into this beer without being overpowered by flavors. Glad I was able to snag one while I was in Colorado visiting.
