VERY nice balance for a bourbon barrel beer. Enjoy with caution. ;)

Can't add much that hasn't been said. 2014 vintage, perfectly black, bourbon and chocolate to the nose. Taste was fantastic, the bourbon had mellowed in the months since bottling letting the coffee and chocolate come through. Coats the mouth and tongue with silky goodness. Just fantastic - everything I was expecting!
