22 oz bottle...Poured into a Yet snifter. Perfect for a snowy Colorado day like today. Crazy dark espressso color with a nice tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and aged bourbon. Taste has some sweetness and milk chocolate notes. Rich malts, bourbon, vanilla throughout the profile with a woody, slight heat on the finish make this easy to drink. Overall a delicious beer that I would love to drink again. Nice carbonation and full in body. Will seek out some more....

Used motor oil black, thin coffee brown head. Bourbon, plums, cherries, blackcurrants, honey, roasted malt, and hints of chocolate. Chewy, full-bodied, with a blend of sweetness from the honey and sourness from the bourbon. Pleasant bittersweet finish of bourbon. Alcohol is hidden well.
