Draft at RBSG on the bus. Pours a deep brown-black with a soft tan head. Nose is bourbon and then toasty malts. Bourbon is dominant as this isn’t very aromatic to begin with. On tasting, some boozy notes that fade into a faint roasty note and clean bitterness. Dry finish and a very drinkable beer that isn’t overwhelming.

Pours dark brown with light tan head. Smell is roasty and lightly smoky. Taste is slightly chocolatey and roasty with some strange light tartness. Fuck. I guess it was a bit above average. I LIKE FIRE PONIES!
