Big let down on this one. Some chocolate was in the nose for sure. Taste had a metallic finish to it. This barrel didn’t do the beer a justice.

Bottle at the brewery. #cred. #homer. Nose is is super chocolate and bourbon. Notes of dark chocolate and cocoa nibs rise up from the aroma. Wowe. Taste. Wowe. Luscious dark chocolate but never bitter. Decadent. Modest bourbon. Light warming in the finish from the pepper. Faint vanilla. Overall the chocolate is really prominent but doesn’t overwhelm too much. The spice seems to be a little light compared to the regular cake but it’s still there. The bourbon is light but adds a light vanilla note. Very nice.
