3.8/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

P: Dark mahogany body with a dollop of cappuccino froth.

S: Bourbon is definitely the star here. Toasted coconut, vanilla, and toasted oak.

T/M: Roasted barley, bitter cocoa, oak soaked bourbon, light roast coffee and rolled oats. Prickly carbonation in a medium-full body. Finishes bitter and slightly chalky.

O: The bourbon complements nicely and isn't overpowering. A great way to celebrate a 5 year anniversary.

Pours an almost opaque reddish brown with a thin tan head. Smells of vanilla bean and some cherry. A bit of wood in the aroma as well. Taste begins with some maple syrup, then some hearty bread, followed by some tart cherries, and finishes with a clean bourbon. The aftertaste has some vanilla in it. Mouthfeel is rich. Overall an excellent beer, a nice choice for their 5th anniversary.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a super-effervescent chestnut with 2 fingers of tan head. Fantastic lacing & head retention with lovely viscosity to this

S: Some vanilla & butterscotch notes & other Bourbon notes

T: Much oakyness/dryness with faint bourbon & butterscotch up front. Vanilla, oaky dryness & booze as this warms

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, too much actually

Rough edges are still present, if you like them with a lot of Bourbon, but not much malt depth , this beer is for you. Not totally in my wheelhouse, but I like what they were shooting for here. Just not the sum of it's parts. Keep shooting for the moon Marshall! I will age my other bottle for a least a year. A sipper as it is now...
