Bottle, from b3shine (thanks Beau!), shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Hearty dark brown with a finely bubbled sienna-brown head. Big chocolatey aroma and flavour, matched by a lovely bourbon sweetness. Heavy malts here, slightly brothy (soy), big and chewy. Very nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at the brewpub, served in a snifter. The beer pours black with a medium thick brown head that diminishes to an outer ring eventually. Thick rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and bourbon. Rich body with flavors of chocolate, bourbon-soaked wood, dark fruit and a bit of coffee. The finish is roasty with a bittersweet chocolate and booze finish. Very enjoyable overall.
