Bottle shared by bmanning and another by Lunch. Thanks Ben & Paul!

A: This collaborative effort appears a rich, dark brown, nearing black. There is about an eighth inch of beige head that leaves random traces of lacing about the glass.

S: The aroma is bold, with scents of bourbon and roasted malt. No surprises here.

T: The flavor is the best aspect of the beer, as it should be. Olde Hickory, Duck-Rabbit, and Foothills play well together. Everything comes together nicely, with roasted malt and bourbon flavors bold, yet balanced. The barrel presence is very strong and forward throughout. Complex and tasty.

M: The feel is medium bodied, with a slight sweetness and alcohol presence throughout.

D: I would definitely have this again. Tasty stuff.

A - pours black into the glass, frothing up a somewhat subdued chocolaty head

S - nose is milk chocolate malts intertwined with bourbon notes

T - opens up with milk chocolates that were so dominant in the aroma. These move on to some spicy vanilla bourbon flavors that eventually move on to some dark chocolates on the backend. Finshes chocolaty and delicious.

M - medium silky body that is very smooth

D - really nice brew on hand here. Another winner in the North Carolina brewery collaborations. Second time having it, and it is better than I remember it.
