On draught at the Malt House: Pours a thick opaque black colour with a large creamy brown head. Aromas of oak, whiskey, and bbq smoke. Taste is rich with strong bourbon flavors and barbeque. Nutty, burnt toast and coffee grounds.

This has an amazing one-two-three punch. Its not really complex, in the sense that complex beers have flavor notes that dance around each other -- but it has big, big notes of wood, bourbon, and chocolate. It had the heaviest wood aroma Ive ever experienced (thats a good thing) although it didnt necessarily seem like oak -- not sure if the barrels were some other wood, or if the intensity of it fooled me. The bourbon was equally compelling, and the same one-two punch dominated the flavor, along with nice chocolate overtones. In theory, Id say this could use more subtlety, but the truth was that I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.
