Four String Motorbreath - Bourbon Barrel Aged
The same mahogany color as the regular but this was very carbonated. Huge foamy head. Big bourbon nose. This is dominated by the barrel. Boutbon, wet wood, alcohol, chocolate and some coffee in the finish. Distracting carbonation on the tongue.

Four String Motorbreath
750 ml bottle via trade shared with Tmoney99, Chris R and the Dutch's crew. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have bigger dark fruit character, roasted malt, chocolate, the coffee comes through in the flavor more than the nose, seems to carry the abv nicely,perhaps a touch thin, good.
