look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12 oz Bottle poured into a snifter... let it warm up a little.. opens up so nicely
A-Dark amber/brown color...nice head that dissipates but lingers around the edge of the glass
S- magnificent...rich vanilla and bourbon notes with a light cold hint of malt
T- Man....rarely do beers live up to the hype... this definitely does... rich vanilla maybe caramel notes...nice barrel tartness on the back sides of the tongue that.compliments maltiness wonderfully.
M- Great body..coats the tongue...a little tingley as it warms.
O- This is a great great beer. If you are lucky enough get your hands on it... it lives up to the rest of the Bourbon County Family

Surprisingly on tap at San Diego Brewing Co, poured into an 8 oz goblet
A: Cola-like color, no head and viscous.
S: Booze and toffee are the prominent aromas. Notes of coconut, nutmeg, oak and cherry as we'll. Strong bouquet carried by ample alcohol volatiles.
T: Flavors follow but notes of vanilla are right at the front. Also picking up notes of tobacco and ripe fruit. Finishes long and sweet with lots residue between sips...in a good way.
M: chewy, sticky, yummy
Serving type: on-tap
