Almost black pour. Small tan head. Plenty of lacing. Huge malty bourbony aroma. Taste is the same. Awesome malt and bourbon. Fritz123 (1597) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle locally from Total Wine in Boca Raton. Had shared at a bottle share. Small snifters. Pours a deep brown with a thick light tan head. Some lacing. Powerful barrel aroma of whiskey/bourbon, dark fruits, booze, oak chips, slight caramel, and vanilla. The taste is close to the aroma with the booze, barrel and dark fruits most dominant and the vanilla creaminess on the back end. Very smooth texture. Slight boozy finish. Damn good beer.

Bottle from Total Wine right near the brewery in Tampa. Pours dark brown color with a big khaki head on top. Big whiskey aromas, vanilla, caramel, molasses, oak. The bourbon is strong with this one. Big rich vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, molasses, bourbon is so smooth here. Big and rich mouthfeel as usual from these guys, low plus carbonation, oh yeah. Another beautiful barrel aged beer from CCB. Yum. budznsudz (584) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours like brown mud into the glass with a whisp of tan head. Aroma is boozy bourbon, figs, and brown sugar. Taste is brown sugar sweetness, spices, toffee, and barrel. Yum _angst_ (5009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle received in trade. Thank you rfraga7! Pours tiny hazy dark reddish brown with a small frothy mocha head that leaves some lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, malty and slightly fruity with caramel, biscuits, toffee, vanilla fudge, coconut shavings, peat, charred wood, raisins, prunes, hay, liquorice fudge and bourbon. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter, malty, and slightly fruity with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, milk chocolate, coconut milk, charred wood, raisins in rum, figs in brandy, smoked meat, bourbon, liquorice fudge, hay and hints of orange zest. Mouthfeel is soft, round, fat, creamy, boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet, slightly bitter and malty with caramel, biscuits, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, toasted coconut, bourbon, raisins, hay, cocoa powder and hints of liquorice. Sweet, heavy barrel character yet manages to find a vulgar balance.

ampled at DLD 2014. Thanks guy! This was the better of the Cigar City brews I had that day. Muddy brown color with no head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, caramel, chocolate and cherry. Chocolatey and toffee/caramel flavor to start with vanilla and oak before a bourbon and chocolate finish. Really good stuff. Art (3220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
