2015 bottle. Dark pour, opaque, quick tan head that fades fast into a small cap. Mose is a little weak, slight notion of the barrel treatment. Taste is more pronounced. Oak, some bourbon, roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla. Light booze burn near the finish. Medium to full body with light carbonation.

Flavour has nice wood tones, whiskey/bourbon, honey, bitter, roast, light spice, light mocha/caramel, light soy, some cake and cookie, some coffee, toffee, yum yum... It goes on. Nice stuff!
Aftertaste is bitter, roast, wood/whiskey/bourbon and some malts with a chocolate edge.

Bottle shared by Countbeer @ "Cut weer" tasting. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized fairly quickly diminishing brown head. Aroma is malts, soft balanced roast, wood, bourbon. Taste malts, bourbon, lightly roast, a perfect mix of malts, dark malts, lightly roast, a light hint of chocolate, sweetness vanilla oak and bourbon blend together in an almost perfect marriage. Perhaps just a little bit in the sweet side, but lovely nonetheless. Medium body, suitable soft but decently noticeable carbonation. Wonderful stuff!

Black with tan foam dissipating quickly. Non resinous surface. Soft feel, round medium heavy body. Creamy. Drinkable. Bushy green hops. Finishes lightly sweet. Touch of vanilla. not as bristling, acidic and bright than the lagunitas west had side by side. Interesting and personable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark ebony pour with a small latte head. Cocoa, bourbon-forward, oak, vanilla, coffee, and caramel. Unfortunately, even at 9.5%, the alcohol is noticeable and a bit cloying. Not bad but not at all in the world-class category.
