This has an amazing one-two-three punch. Itís not really complex, in the sense that complex beers have flavor notes that dance around each other -- but it has big, big notes of wood, bourbon, and chocolate. It had the heaviest wood aroma Iíve ever experienced (thatís a good thing) although it didnít necessarily seem like oak -- not sure if the barrels were some other wood, or if the intensity of it fooled me. The bourbon was equally compelling, and the same one-two punch dominated the flavor, along with nice chocolate overtones. In theory, Iíd say this could use more subtlety, but the truth was that I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.
