Bottle share from my buddy in Michigan. Pours a deep black but the head dissipates quickly. A lot of bourbon, oak, and caramel on the nose but the bourbon is a bit too aggressive. Thinner body than I hoped for yet has lasting woodiness and booze.

A nice beer. The taste of oak and bourbon come through in a pleasant way. Not to overpowering for the high abv.

Dark brown beer. Has a bourbon smell and a strong bourbon flavor along with the malt. Very smooth. Bourbon isnít my favorite, but this is an excellent beer.

12oz bottle bought from Brewmasters (Vintage 2013). Black hue with zero visibility. Mostly diminishing light brown head, virtually no lacing. Malty roasted aroma. Heavy bitter malty vanilla taste up front with a light oaky/vanilla average fishing. Full body with an oily texture, soft carbonation.

Pours dark chocolate with a milk choc foam. Immediate taste of sweet chocolate with a lingering sweetness. A whole glass may be too much sweetness but it's very tasty

FROM NOTES: June 28, í12
A: Great bourbon and vanilla. Slight alcohol as well. Some semi-sweet chocolate.
A: About a half finger of tan head. Deep brown, almost black body.
T: Definitely get that lactose flavor, but it is dominated by bourbon, alcohol, and vanilla. Follows the nose with some chocolate.
P: Nice body with adequate carbonation but not quite as smooth as Iíd like.
O: Great beer. The alcohol is a little overstated, but overall, itís very nice and drinkable.

Vintage 2013, Pours opaque , thin brown lacing. Aromas of milk, honey, bourbon. You can taste the bourbon, sweet on the tongue. Crisp in the Mouth, average carbonation. Overall a nice offering, should mellow with age.

Tan creamy almost nitro head. Smells of chocolate. Smooth, sweet and creamy. Almost smells like cocoa crispies....
So, I had to re-rate this higher than the 2.2 I gave it... I didnít care for it when the bottle was half way done because I thought it was a session type milk stout. Umm... after drinking the bottle I realized it is 10% abv. The mouth feel and flavor have no alcohol ... honestly I did not like it because it was too much of a milk stout mouth feel (I drank it at 47degrees an a stout glass).
