Bottle. The pour has a deep red hue to it. The aroma has a big bourbon to it. The taste is sweet and bourbon at the same time. Very smooth drinking big beer. Still a little hot.

Shared during DLD bottle share. It definitely tastes like what you would expect. It has a ton of dark fruit character to it and not a lot of roasty stout qualities.Sweet and syrupy.

March 22, 2014 - on tap at Bruery tasting room. Brown pour with limited head. Wood, dark fruit and toffee in the aroma. Taste was consistent with aroma, but here is where the bourbon comes out. Very smooth with a touch of heat in the finish.
