Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is black with a thick, mocha colored head. The aroma offers smoke, roast, oak, booze, bread, salt, campfire, burning meats. The taste is equally complex. Nice smoke flavor mingling well with a bold and assertive bourbon character. Full bodied and rich. A bit sweet. Alcoholic warmth in the finish. A solid beer from The Bruery. Worth a try.

Dark brown. Not much head. Has a fair bit of smoke, sweet brown sugar burnt short ribs nose. Big smoky, hickory, super sweet, rich sticky, just so rich but balanced. One of their best beers.

2014 Bottle shared. Thanks TimE! Nice honey ham nose with dark chocolate and warming bourbon notes. Just below average carbonation with vanilla and fennel seed notes. The smoke is there in the background and works well with the cacao nib notes. Not much sweetness either. Great stuff with a lingering chocolately, smokey finish.

Very dark brown color. Amazingly lovely bourbon chocolate smokey nose. The sweetness has been toned down by age. A lot of tamari in the nose. The mouth is full of choockate tamari and smoke and wood. Amazing

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the rot box. Pours inky black, small tan head, dissipates fairly quickly, decent lacing. Aroma is a bit smokey, roasty, licorice, hardwood, peat, bourbon, cocoa. Flavor is fairly sweet, medium bitter, light smoke, roasty, bourbon, anise. Medium body. Solid, not as good as original. Perhaps my fault.
