3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013-08-17. Black body with a modest tan head. 4+ Aroma of sweetish dark malt, light roast and modest bourbon. 7++ Flavour is pleasant, sweet dark malt, mild bourbon notes up front grow in subsequent sips. 7++ Average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. It is fairly simple but relatively balanced. The bourbon character is fairly restrained, to it’s benefit in my opinion. Growler, Campground Brewdown.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Fat Heads. Pours black with a big tan head. Nose is bourbon, sugary plums, Brown sugar, molasses and some vanilla. Flavor is brown sugar, sweet plums & figs, a solid booze hit. Caramel comes out & dominates, complimented by roast & dark fruits in the finish. Its a big beer but the serving size (6oz?) kept it from being overwhelming.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On cask at Fat Head’s. Pours black with a marshmellow tan head. Aroma is somewhat boozy, vanilla, oak, chocolate. This smells really good. The kentucky bourbon notes really shine. Creamy medium mouthfeel. Flavors tickle my tastebuds. This brew has a great bourbon taste upfront, mixes with the chocolate, vanilla and oak meld, with more chocolate, then finishes really smooth. Bourbon lingers a bit. I love this!
