Straight Middle of the road, bottled from JO’s 7th anniversary, just decided to open it now. Pretty tasty for a BA BW but nothing earth shattering, this is a good quality beer nice and dark i mean murky brown dark, and slight hints of bourbon but not dominate. Nice.

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Murky brown ale with a fleeting, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is a fusion of caramel, vanilla, coconut and bourbon. Full-bodied and velvety with airy carbonation. The flavor offers nice, mellow alcohol warmth, caramel and coconut. Finishes rich with loads of coconut and vanilla. Thanks to darkguardian for sharing his bottle of this world class beer!
