Bottle purchased at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark, deep black, with, strangely, visible carbonation, a one inch head, mocha colored, and some good lacing

Smells like dark roasted malt and bourbon.

The taste is similar. Slightly sour and tangy, with subtle bourbon, and chocolate- cocoa powder, mainly. Some vanilla, as well, with tart dark fruits- cherries and grapes.

Medium bodied, slightly thin for the style. Very creamy and smooth.

This one is a bit better than it's ratings show, but isn't quite big enough to match its barrel characteristics. The sour-ish twang isn't all that pleasant either, but goes away as the beer warms up.
