375mL bottle, pours dark brown / black with a medium beige head. Aroma of rich bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark cocoa, peat and alcohol. Flavour reveals the dark cocoa, bourbon and oak upfront, with a smoky/peaty and alcoholic finish. Exceptionally well-crafted.

Bottle shared by Ben aka ShareANeveda. Poured dark brown with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, woody with a small alcohol aroma. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy bourbon woody and malt sweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

12.7oz bottle-pours a retaining thin brown head with good retention for alcohol and black color. Aroma is dark malt-licorice/some chocolate, sharp-acidic, wood-bourbon, tar, some dark fruit. Smells awesome but occasional for my preference. Taste is first carbonation on the tongue with a hops bite, then dark malt-licorice/some chocolate/coffee, sharp-acidic, wood-bourbon, tar, some dark fruit. Occasional, but nice.
