Very good version, bourbon really comes through and adds to the beer.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 11, 2013
Pitch black color. Dark brown head. The nose exudes bourbon, dark chocolate, brownies and oak. Very boozy nose. Low carbonation, the bourbon hits first followed by a wave of dark chocolate, dark fruit, treacle. Boozy, dry, rounded, tongue numbing and incredibly delicious. Big warming finish with lots of bourbon, dark chocolate notes. Really well balanced through out. Never tries to be over the top. Heavenly beer that I love after a stressful day at the office on a cold November night. Thank you Emelisse.
