Draft at Eulogy. Snifter. Opaque pour with a good tan head. Pleasant dark Bourbon aroma. Nice stout flavors. Burnt marshmallows. Semi-sweet chocolate. Greek coffee. Vinyl. Nice Bourbon barrel notes. Medium-thick body. Feels like a decent Imperial Stout. Easily the best from Evolution that I have had so far.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2013 Draft sample at brewery..description is spot on..only had a bit but this offering is stellar, extremely smooth, combination of flavors and aromas are sublime..very well done barrel offering..looking to land a few of these and see how they should get even better with age...thoughts confirmed after a larger pour..excellent..
