4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the brewpub. Very dark dense looking pour with a beige head. Aroma is bourbon, wood, vanilla, hint of sweet chocolate. Similar taste. Palate is somewhat light for the style but not bad. Getting a bit of the booze but not over the top. Warming.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Very dark (duh!), with a barely visible head that disipated immediately. Boozy bourbon on the nose with a bittersweet coffee/wood tone and sugary likeness. Taste is complex: malt, bourbon, charred wood, roasted coffee, toasted marshmallow. Relatively lighter body for the style, goes down more easily like a cup of coffee than a super big stout. Very good though, plan on putting a couple away for a while. Give it a try!

French oak, distinct tannic elements, wet wood, splinters shows. Some cocoa, creaminess in the body as we move into the middle. A bit of cocoa, roast, tannic french oak, woody. A bit mellow, cocoa and dryness. Some roastiness lingers, thins out a bit more. Tasty. A touch thin but pretty nice beer.
