Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark brown color with a nice tan head. Like most of the migration series, there seems to be a good bit of carbonation. Lots of dark fruit and caramel with a hint of wood. The bourbon is light on the tongue which is good. The flavors of dark caramel, toffee, dried cherries and plums all mix together well. A little vanilla and light cocoa notes come out as it warms. The high ABV dries things out on the back end and provides a warming feeling as it goes down. Nice brew.

750 thanks to Bob. Nice dark pour. Bit of molasses. Creamy. Some bourbon. Not a lot of bourbon in nose or taste. Bit of chocolate as well. Nice. I should let it warm up a bit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
25.4 oz bottle. Black brown, kicks up a big tan head with a brisk pour. Nose is bourbon, oak, cocoa and molasses; hints of licorice. Silky and coating with a tang and a tingle, getting hot. Just the right amount of bourbon in the taste playing nicely off the other components instead of as an accent or enhancement. Bittersweet chocolate and Cuban espresso with mild smoke, plum and juniper. Leaning toward an Old Ale.

750ml bottle: pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet dark caramel malty nose with some dark chocolate and bourbon vanilla oak. Starts with pretty good fullness and effervescence with toasted dark caramel and toffee notes with some coconut and dark chocolate vanilla before a slightly drier bittersweet dark chocolate finish. Pretty true to style, but could use some time to mellow out.
