COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much like the "sweet light crude oil" from the eastern plains of Colorado this beer pours a deep black with a tantalizing off-white head. Aromatics of sweet malt and bourbon envelope the nose like the sunset of the eastern plains. The malt profile continues through the palate from beginning to end with subtle hints of chocolate, coffee, and of course bourbon. This is a true beer for the malt and bourbon lovers alike.

On tap at Chuck’s, pours black with a very small tan head. Nose brings out huge notes of bourbon upfront, followed by vanilla and cocoa. Flavour is all bourbon and booze upfront, with a huge amount of heat and bourbon, with secondary notes of vanilla and cocoa. Way too boozy and bourbony but it works in small amounts. Very good for what it is.

MarinaMarket (218) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2015
A little hot like I like it. Bourbon, vanilla, wood & cocoa. Heavy malt but balanced with alcohol enough to make this very enjoyable. Tasted at 55F.

750 caged and corked. Very dark brown pour. Chocolate nose with some booze. Wood flavors, bitter chocolate. Bourbon and vanilla in the background. Little bit of acetone in the finish. Some heat also in the finish. Ok but I wouldn’t get it again.

Pours black like oil with the same viscosity and dark tan head. Bourbon, big on the nose, with just a little vanilla and cocoa, some oak; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more bourbon.
