2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated at Keystone Colorado, around 9.3K Meters above sea level. Rated in typical ski chalet glassware. Dark, black, some reddish hues. Little or no head. What is presented, graces the rim of the glass and is a smoky tan color. Aroma is of bourbon......deep turkey nasty southern bourbon. Sipping lightly, it appears a though was a cheap mix of Jack D and a moderately acceptable stout. (Baltic or Russian). Finishes with a kentucky type palate....more bourbon than beer. Hmm... why is this rated so high (ABV?)

I consider this to be the filet mignon of beer. Or at least stouts. Very smooth, especially if aged, chocolatey, Carmel, amazing!!!

Finally getting around to rating this. Snifter at the source in Chicago for a late bday Rare Day tix I got to buy for Adam and myself. Iíve had this a lot. Dark brown with caramel head. Aroma is bourbon and dark chocolate and some vanilla. Taste is not-too-bitter dark chocolate. Bourbon is underlying but present and notable. Not overwhelming. I love this stuff. Cheers to BCS hunting 2015 in a few weeks!

Enjoyed this every time I have had it. Recently after bottling, after 3 months, after 6 months etc. Just wish it wasn't owned by InBev but I'm still not complaining.
