I found this amazing beer at The Stables bar in Dixon, Il. I was a little taken aback by receiving it in a small 9oz snifter (normally Im used to getting pints) until I took the first sip. Robust doesn't even begin to describe this beer. Pitch black, no lace and the strong taste of bourbon confused me at first. About four sips in I was hooked on the overwhelming flavor this beer had to offer. Hints of coffee and chocolate make a good barrier between the flavorful and aromatic hops as well as the powerful bourbon. I was extremely pleased with the almost "oil like" consistency this beer had. I also enjoyed the sophistication I felt by enjoying this like I would a fine glass of liquor. I will say that I would never have more than two glasses of this a night. On top of it being a pricey beer, it is very powerful flavor and ABV wise. So be careful and enjoy!
ps- The Stables is the only place to find this on tap in a 45 mile radius. So if you happen to be passing through town please enjoy a fine brew at one of the finest establishments in our small town.

July 2014. On Tap at Rattle n Hum. Better than a extra Birthday that doesn't shorten your life span. As a matter of fact this adds so much pleasure to the day, it's like doubling down on this particular 24 hours. At 15%...Hey, WTF...I'm on board.
02/21/12 From bottle. Rattle n Hum, NYC. If this was the only brew in the world I would not be unhappy. Been drinking it, whenever possible, for years & even with the switch to Budweiser It's still a superb brew.
