From notes on 3/25/14

On tap at the KBS release. Had this at the same time as a KBS, but still enjoyed it. Very malty with hints of caramel and oak. Good whiskey touch. Definitely a beer I would try again.

Dark Brown sweet smelling with almost no foam. The taste is a revelation and surprising. Amazing beer. Had waited a long time to try and was worth the wait. Alcohol hidden and bourbon character in the back.
