Year old bottle. Reminds me of Haymarket Claire's Thirsty Ale. Delicious!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a motor oil black with just a small brown hue near the edges. A half finger or so of a tan head with decent retention and leaves behind a small lacing along with some brown alcohol legs left behind. Completely dark and opaque

Smell: Strong bourbon along with rich chocolate. Juicy berries and some sweetness. Oaky qualities along with some vanilla

Taste: Opens up with a bold and strong whisky. Vanilla to oak flavors come in. In the middle juicy mulberries along with black berries all dipped in chocolate. More flavors of chocolate and some roasted malts come through at the end. Some alcohol but fairly smooth

Monthfeel: Fairly smooth but heavy and chewy. Alcohol is warm but doesn't bite to hard

Overall: Another great in the bourbon county series. Great mix of bourbon berries and stout. Can't wait to try more variations similar to this
