3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2015 Not my favorite RB Anniversary beer, but not bad. A bit of an ashy/charcoaly character keeps this down imo. Some nice fruity notes in the finish. Bourbon barrels land a lightly woody character, not a ton of bourbon in the nose.
Cola character. Meh.
Bottle thanks to Rick. Pours a dark brown with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is roasted malt, wood, vanilla, bourbon. Medium body, roast, vanilla, boozy finish, decent. jrob21 (3688) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Growler. Pleasantly surprised here. Big vanilla and toasty malt. Bittersweet chocolate flavors. Good balance, sweetness, and presence. One of the best I have had from these guys. Homer321 (5071) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2015

Bottle - Pours oil black with a thin ring of tan head. Nose is brown sugar, molasses, bourbon, and sweet dark malt. Taste is brown sugar, a bit of ash stuck behind a big molasses base. Marshmallows and chocolate. Slick and medium-thin. Mellow carbonation. Just too big of a beer for me, but I don’t like the style.

Bottle 12 at Tool Tasting Night from gad905; dark brown almost black pour with a thin tan head, sweet aroma with a hint of bourbon, taste is very sweet dark chocolate along with hints of vanilla some roast and some underlying bourbon. TimsRatings (421) - - FEB 25, 2014
From 12oz bottle
Pours almost balks with just a touch of tan head. Chocolate malt aroma. Ditto on the taste, with a bit of bourbon on the aftertaste. Chocolate comes out clearer in the aftertaste, too.
