Bottle. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Sweet malt, light chocolate, alcohol heat, vanilla, bourbon, and oak. Decent. User37895 (3042) - - SEP 14, 2012
Pour was chestnut brown, thin head, weak lacing. Aroma was strong bourbon, vanilla, oak. The flavor followed, chocolate fully in there, bourbon perhaps of jack daniels instead (now that the write up mentions that). Mouthfeel was full, shy of sticky sticky, though. An ok brew, nothing great about it. bhensonb (15188) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 4, 2012
