A: Pours a very dark brown color with a two finger chocolate head that dissipates quickly.
S: Bourbon up front. Hints of dark fruits, vanilla, malt, toffee, and chocolate make this a complex beer.
T: Bourbon followed by dark fruits. ABV is well hidden.
M: Very sticky, heavy, and thick on the palate.
O: A very good variant by Goose Island. Very complex. Perfect sipping beer for the winter months.
Serving type: bottle

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
