1 pt 6 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown and with a reddish hue and a diminished light brown head. Mild/smooth chocolate to liqourice blended aroma and with a slight roasted note. Flavour holds a mild warming alcohol feel, a slight burning roasted malt note and a smooth chocolate note. Finish has the same in a continued fashion. Quite nice but not really great.

Bottled. Hazy dark brown coloured. Buttery cocoa aroma with cheesy notes. Sweet buttery cocoa and chocolate flavour. Notes of bourbon. Rather unclean. Light to medium body.

22 oz Bottle. Pours dark brown, much darker than expected. Aroma of vanilla and oak. Taste includes both of those, along with coffee and chocolate, and a noticeable but not overwhelming bourbon flavor. Excellent winter beer.

This is a fabulous winter beer. The vanilla and carmel flavors come through perfectly. I would like to have a lot more of this.

Smooth oak rich malt aroma. Small fleeting tan head. The flavor is a prefect blending of sweet malt, toasted malt, oak, and just the right amount of bourbon. Really a masterwork in terms of blending diverse flavors. Currently one of my favorite beers.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It poured black and opaque with a small, quickly fading, tan head.The first impression was a mid-tongue sweetness followed by a complex mix of flavors, not all of them pleasant, that were difficult to identify inindividually. Not much carbonation. The hops come in late and I was left with a sour aftertaste.

Pours very dark brown, with a rich two finger head. Nose is of licorice and wood. Taste- bourbon flavour is quite pronounced, along with the oak. Quite hoppy as well. Sweet iniitially, but that melds into more of a hotness from the booze. Finish is dry and woody. Interesting beer. Carbonation is on the low end.
