On tap. Pours brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, vanilla, sweet malt, nougat. Flavor of bourbon, roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate malt. I don’t really get any of the chile notes, just lots of bourbon. Ok.

650ml bottle from Cork Keg & Spirits, brought by bananabi11, cellared for 2 months and shared with him at cellar temperature. Thx E! Chasing Clown Shoes, so a bit of a white whale. Black pour, brown head. Aroma has chocolate, caramel light chile, truffles. Taste is sweet caramel, dark chocolate, some roast. Medium to full bodied. Low carbonation. Blend is good. Some alcohol. The light chile is an interesting addition. Finishes well mixed between bitter and sweet. Clown shoes has really nice stouts. Big fan! 15

Bottle. The pour is dark with lacing. The aroma is chocolate and spice. The taste is nice. Not a lot of spice which I was glad, but warming. Not a ton of barrel. A solid beer.

Not a fan of whiskey, but must try some of these as barrel aging is so en vogue. CS can be a bit of a crap-shoot, but they have some great brews. This one pours with a darkness and thin skim of mocha foam. Aroma thankfully has nice rich notes of cocoa and roast amid the obvious booze. Flavor is similar, with more of the whiskey coming through, but still yielding some room for chocolate and vanilla. My favorite aspect of this is by far the incredibly smooth mouthfeel and mild, clean finish. Quality brew for sure. If only I could enjoy whiskey...
