Just like lebron, pretty good but way overpriced. Save your money and buy some bourbon county

Impenetrably dark. Smells like oatmeal, bourbon, buckwheat pancake, and a bit of maple syrup. Tastes similar to the smell, mixed with cola and a hint of coco.
Sticks to the lips a bit. Perfectly subtle carbonation. Excellent beer!

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

2013 vintage according to store label. White cap of that even means anything.

A: A viscous dark brown that matches the color of the brown glass from which it pours. Opaque. Dark brown head that disappears. No lacing. Engine oil. No visible carbonation.

S: Waves of smooth bourbon escape from the bottle and glass. Intense roasted malt and sweet notes of fresh vanilla bean and milk chocolate.

T: Bourbon, oatmeal, figs and coke. The finish is moderately dry with a hint of bitter coffee and cocoa.

M: Full bodied. Velvet. Real slick and smooth. The booze tingles and lingers for a bit. Mildly carbonated.

O: Big flavors. Smooth throughout and really opens as it warms. Never too boozy and never too sweet. A slight bitterness in the finish that keeps it even keeled
