Big thanks for the chance to try this beer! Pours black with a light, lasting tan head. Smell is lightly roasty and big bourbon with not much alcohol at all. Taste is rich, roasty bourbon and super smooth. Very drinkable and no heat from the alcohol getting in the way. Fantastic beer.

On tap (thanks to___ for breakin’ this out). Plenty of booze and vanilla with a shitload of bourbon. Hard to believe this came from a dry Woodford Reserve barrel. I get some orange in here which I suspect comes from the Cascades.

Rich chocolate, bourbon and alcohol aroma. Balanced, though perhaps going a little towards underbittered at times. Very, very nice. Finishes off with a chocolate liqueur fade.
