A waft of bourbon and ethanol bursted forth trough the sweet malt. A smooth palate with a nice and loose espresso colored head. The flavor is bourbon oatmeal and raisin cookies. Clean finish and is great even at a cool room temperature.

Very rich, very delicious dark beer. Picked up at Local Option with Josh, Brandon, Brian, and Al after ASEH in 2017. Thick on the tongue, super chocolatey with a deep licorice finish.

Aroma is mostly chocolate and alcohol. Taste is similar. Appearance is dark brown with a very fizzy head the dissipates quickly. Fairly light body. Not as rich and creamy as you would want a barrel aged stout to be. No lacing whatsoever. Not up to Central Waters standards in my opinion.

Draft. Aroma of of raisin and sticky cake. Flavors follow, plus some bourbon, it’s sweetness moderated by an insistent bitter backbone probably more malty than hoppy. This finish astounds. Really smooth, balanced. Not boozy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is bourbon, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, barrel, bready, good. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head, an unfortunate Coca Cola fizziness that seemed very wrong, and it poured thin. Taste is bourbon, barrel, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, tasty. Mouthfeel is medium body, light, bubbly carbonation, bourbon and chocolate aftertaste. Overall, the body on this is all wrong, because it would be great otherwise.
