Thanks, Derek. Flat black pour with no head. Intense alcohol aroma. Plenty of bourbon, some coconut, roasted malt, and char. A bit of vanilla, some dark chocolate, and licorice. The flavor is much smoother. Nice vanilla, bourbon, and coconut. Some alcohol heat, lots of chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of ash. Very mild coffee notes as well as some charred oak.

Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice bourbon note with a good amount of coffee and roasted malts backed by chocolate. Flavor has a lot of bourbon and vanilla up front with a bit of coconut. Mellows in to more of bitter dark chocolate and coffee note with a hint of oak in the finish. Smooth.
