This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of light roast and dry chocolate. Flavor similar, but very restrained, but not really complex, not really any barrel either. Meh

Art (2695) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Pours a dark brown with no real head. Aromas of dark fruits and chocolate fudge. Light vanilla. The taste is too much like a lager to me and this yeast is t helping the beer. Just not digging it.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown with very tiny tan looking head. Aromas of sugar, chocolate, and bourbon. Flavor had chocolate, vanilla, wood, and bourbon burning. Full body and a thick silky texture. Average carbonation and burning alcohol finish. Not bad.
