Aroma of sweet chocolate and raisin toast. Extremely smooth with tons of chocolate and subdued hops. Interesting bourbon character with no real harsh tones to it. Amazing.

2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Really nice fruit, toffee, whiskey aroma. Pours very dark almost black with a dark tan head that fades quickly. Oak, dark fruit, molasses, vanilla. The flavors are really nice but it has a little harshness on the finish and it’s lighter bodied than I would have thought from the aroma. Kind of thin. Overall a good beer that might be better with a little time on it.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark stout-brown with a very thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, oak, bourbon, dark malts. Flavor is cocoa, coffee, a little hint of oakiness, and a lot of dry, roasted malts. Bourbon flavor doesnt really show up. Palate is a bit thin and undercarbonated, like a dry Irish stout but without the nitro head. Not horrible I guess, but I’m really not a fan of this style.

Bottle. Pours a dark murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is bourbon, wood, vanilla, raisins, and caramel. Taste is quite sweet, mild bitter, with a sweet woody finish. Medium body, on the lighter side of medium considering the ABV/style, soft carbonation. Very easy to drink. Solid.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on tap @ the Fort Worth Gingerman Tate of Texas. Red tinted dark pour with a slight head. Heavenly sweet vanilla and oak nose. Bourbon comes through as well. Medium bodied mouthfell with moderate carbonation. Flavor is just divine! Huge bourbon and oak. Finshes dry enough to keep it from being cloying. Far and away the best Rahr beer to date.

Pretty, inviting nose; lush, whiskey-tinged chocolate & fruit, oak, espresso, cola, raisins. Creamy, sweet but balanced, good mouthfeel, very tasty, interestingly effervescent on the finish, lingers, good depth of flavor. Quite good.

650 ml bottle from trade with TJ. Poured into a snifter. Beautiful brown reddish hue. Little to no head. Amazing scent of bourbon and raisins. Nice medium mouthfeel. Lots of dark fruit and bourbon on the front slowly melts into a creamy buttery finish. Very well balanced. Taste of bourbon throughout, but not the least bit boozy! Completely delicious!
