A bit better then their Robustito Porter. Pours a beautiful deep black with a thick tan head. Smells of bourbon and caramel. No vanilla like the Robustito. Taste is better balanced. Lots of caramel to accentuate the bourbon.

Draft at Churchill’s. Black pour, with a small tan head. Milk chocolate, moderate roasted malt, bourbon barrel character, vanilla, and notes of raisin. Unfortunately, tasting next to Finest Hour, makes this beer feel thin amd watery.

Draft. This beer was delicous. Sweet roasted coffee and light raspberry aromas, smooth, not too long of a finish. It just was a little flat but that is often the case with these barrel aged beers. So good!
