COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

Thanks to Christian: Beer of the year for me. Its not the hops, its not the roasted malts or the sourness. Its something completly different from the usual top notch beer. What stroke me was sweetness, but it isnt sweet. Its an explosion of toffee, caramelized suger, vanilla and chocolate - but it isnt sweet, just yummy. A perfect beer for what its trying to be.

Pours very dark brown with small light brown fully diminishing head. Heavy malty aroma with notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark coffee. Moderate hoppy aroma with notes of spruce and resin. Moderate yeast aromas with notes of leather. Heavy notes of whiskey, vanilla and alcohol. Flavor is moderate sweet, heavy bitter, and moderate acidic. Long finish, moderate salty. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is lively, medium astringent, heavy alcoholic finish. First beer with whiskey aromas I kinda like.
