On tap it is dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma has booze, roasted malts and roasted fruits. Taste is big & boozy. There is some bourbon up front but smooth. Then there is some figs, plums and hint of vanilla. Great balance for such a young beer. Long finish, great beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12.7oz bottle, poured into a chalice. The aroma is a blend of leather, raisin, molasses, vanilla, light bourbon / rum, and oak. It pours a thick and muddy looking mahogany with a mild tan, soap head that leaves a light and wispy retention with mild lace. The taste is highly sweet with a complimentary medium bitterness. The texture is chewy with a soft, light fuzz, and a full body with notes of raisin and cherry, oak, molasses, and vanilla. The smooth finish is warm and boozy with vanilla rum and herbal notes, as well as oak and dark chocolate. It’s aftertaste is woody and herbal with a light cherry touch, and is mostly clean.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is a strong and glorious Old Fashioned...bitter peels, cherry, bourbon...even some Scotch whiskey with herbal liqueur. Taste is a rum soaked raisins, dark fruits...can’t get away from the Old Fashioned vibes. This is a thick boy, a boozy concoction, one for the ages and a very wonderful sipper. Wish there were more.

Cherry cordial is what strikes me in the aroma. It reminds of Christmas and the chocolates my parents would get from my aunts and uncles. It's has a boozy bite but sweet inviting flavor. Rich brown color.

Pours cola brown with a thin tan head. Nose is intense vanilla, honey, toffee, bourbon, maple syrup. Flavor is maple syrup, vanilla, caramel, a little coffee (but only a hint). Sweet finish. So syrupy and delicious, with a lowish carbonation and a syrupy and heavy body. This beer has such intense barrel character, it’s really insane. Very sweet and sticky, really amazing.
