Dark brown, tiny tan head. Aroma caramel, booze, malt. Medium body. Syrupy milky mouthfeel. Some alcohol. Quite sweet which is ok at first then a bit cloying as it warms. Some chocolate, coffee, caramel, bourbon. Interesting flavors but becomes a bit of a chore to finish. mjmoen (628) - - OCT 2, 2017

A milestone beer - Rating 8,000! Alisa brought this one back to me from a trip and came up with a very special way of helping me to celebrate a Ratebeer milestone. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy very dark brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet molasses, fig, raisin, wood, cookie dough and caramel. The flavor was cherry, raisin and fig with molasses, black licorice, whiskey, and bread dough. Amazingly long finish. Full bodied. Outstanding. jhamp9 (2008) - Corinth, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Dark mahogany pour with a khaki head that fades down to a ring. Oily coating on the glass. Aroma is brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, toast, and oak. Taste is hot bourbon, caramel, and wood. Body is a little thinner than I would have hoped. phranq (250) - - AUG 6, 2017

Bottle. Pours a dark brown. Aroma and taste are caramel, vanilla, and bourbon. commonmac (1369) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2017
On tap at Rumpus Room with GLBTQ crew. Snifter glass. Minimal head on a deeper amber, almost purple colored effort. Aroma is caramel and toffee with a dark fruit undertone. Gives off a little bit of a Belgian quad vibe. Taste is dangerously sweet and alcohol heavy with a dark candied fruit quality and a big malty sweetness. A definite sugary presence. This one feels like it will come back to haunt you. Overall the caramel sweetness is delicious and it carries through in the consumption experience. This brewery knows how to bourbon barrel age a beer. rosskyle (797) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Served on tap at Rumpus Room. Dark black color with a brown head. Bourbon aroma. Chocolate plum scotch flavor. Heavy body.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Turbid, dark brown pour, tan head. Great nose and flavor, dense palate, earthy malt, tannins, woody notes, oak, bourbon, complex finish. Outstanding. I seem to be zoned in on the Central Waters house character.

Bottle from Capone’s, Pours thick and turbid dark brown toward mahogany with minimal tan head. Nose is a great beer/spirit hybrid mix of oaky bourbon, earthy dusty malts, molasses, vanilla, tannins. Tastes of huge oak, bourbon, molasses, earthy caramel, with a rich finish and well hidden alcohol. This one is delicious.
