Bottle, 35cl. Pours a dark dark brown with an oily, short lasting, off white head. Aroma has lots of sweet buttery bourbon, oak, caramel, dark, toasted caramel malts, slight sweet licorice, alcohol. Taste is again very sweet and caramelly. So much nice bourbon, again some sweet licorice, coconut, vanilla. Very oaky as well. Smooth, greasy body, low carbonation. Buttery sweet. Good stuff!

JHeath99 (1446) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle shared by Damian and Lona. Easily one of the most amazing beers I’ve ever had. Dark brown with nice tan head. Aroma and taste are perfect, booze, caramel, malts, and the most ridiculous vanilla.

Prufrockstar (1501) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Draft at Chucks. So much for my productive work morning. Murky brown pour with very little head. Beautiful nose. Raisins, figs, vanilla, molasses. The filling for grandma’s date pinwheel cookies, spiked with whiskey when she wasn’t looking. Taste is sweet; smooth alcohol burn that you can feel moving down your throat and into your belly. Lightly bitter finish. Afterwards the mouth is coated with the residue, so the flavor lasts and lasts. Sticky (in all the best ways). Palate: full body, slick sticky texture, light carbonation. Overall: yep, this beer (on draft) is good no matter what barrel it goes into.
