Bottle. Pours very dark brown with rapidly settling brown head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is strong bourbon, slightly sharp, vanilla, boozy, bourbon sweet with a mild roast, chocolate finish. Quite sweet, fruity undertones, slight char aftertaste. Moderate carbonation, medium to full body, and smooth texture. Seems a little thin and watery. A sweet bourbon beer. Again a solid offering, though it isn’t a rich or full as Uncle Jacob’s. Solid but not really worth the price.

Inköpt på Citybeer i San Fran. PANG! Kraftfull aroma och smak. Välbalanserad, underbar hint av cocos ;)

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours black with no head. Smells of coffee, alcohol, slight sweetness and roasted malts. Tastes of alcohol, coffee, little licorice, and a little oak. Smooth and warm going down. Delicious.

ansalon (936) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2013
Pours black with a minimal mocha head. Swirling it leaves small lacerations in the glass. Aroma is raisins, plum, caramel, dates, figs, vanilla, slight notes of tobacco, leather and smoke. Could sniff this all day long. Taste is caramel, honey, raisins, dates, figs with hints of vanilla, tar, tobacco, bourbon. Aftertaste is dried fruits, smoke and hints of black peppercorn along with some slight warming alcohol. Just magnificent!!

Det här var gott, riktigt gott. Smaken var oerhört kraftfull med mycket smak av choklad, sherry och sherry. Kroppen var stabilare än stonhenge och balansen var jämnare än Richard Gere’s slätrakade kind.

Dark brown/black pour with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla and oak. Flavor is chocolate molasses, vanilla and some bourbon. One hell of a good brew.

Å herre jävlar. Det här var jag inte riktigt beredd på. -Ska vi ta en sån här? , den är ju ganska bra.. Säger Johan. Vafan det är ju absolut värdsklass!! betalade vi en hundring var delat på tre pers vill jag minnas. Ååå så ljuvligt. Får flashbacks till den gamla goda tiden då goose Island fortfarande var ett oberoende bryggeri. Underbart! Tack grabbar!!!

So good! Like Bourbon County crossed with KBS. Bourbon forward with coffee and some chocolate. Nearly if not perfection. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
