Bottle, courtesy of jcapriotti a couple years ago. Strong aroma of malt, vanilla, oak and then some burning fusal alcohol. Sampled from a large, blue plastic cup because I’m moving and my beer glasses are packed. It looked light brown during the pour. Flavor is interesting, loaded with toffee malt, some minerals, oak/vanilla and a grainy finish. Flavor is surprising, not as much alcohol noticeable as in the nose. Creamy texture, coats the mouth, a bit sweet, but there is a bit of bitterness that balances it well. Thanks Jason.

Aroma caramel, raisin, vanilla, woody, Appearance brown, hazy, cloudy, minimal head, tan foam, Taste medium sweetness, Palate full body, thick feel, Over after almost 2 years this beer has smoothed out a lot. A thick mouth feel with lots of dark fruits in the taste. The alcohol is more of a warming feel. I would suggest this beer to a friend.

I am not a whiskey drinker, so this was repulsive to me. One drink and I had to pour the rest down the drain. Unsure which is the worst - this or Sunday Morning Stout. Both I would most likely vomit if I tried to drink the entire bottle.

Pours dark brown-gold opaque with a light tan head and a mild aroma of barley & oak. Tastes of salt & viscous bourbon upfront with a very mild finish of oak, whiskey and a little alcohol. It’s slightly sweet with a full body.
