Consumed at a recent DC area tasting. Served in a SAVOR snifter.

Pours a very dark brown color, bordering on black. Initial pour yields a quarter-finger head, which then disappears almost immediately. The nose is surprising at first, bringing forward a large number of hops. THere is also a bit of bourbon and some booze. Nice roastiness there as well. The flavor melds the hops, roast, and bourbon better than the nose, creating a nice and cohesive whole. Mouthfeel is really smooth and the bourbon plays a really nice role. A nice beer with plenty of promise.
