Scored on a trade in Chicago, brought to DC to enjoy with a friend. Great palate, coffee aromas without being too overwhelming, caramel to soften, full bodied, boozy. One of my favorites!

Gold wax. The pour is black. The aroma is sweet bourbon. The taste is a little hot upfront, but is smooth. Some sweetness overall that I wish the bourbon would cut more. Very solid beer.
