4.18/5  rDev +8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22oz red wax tipped bottle served in a snifter

A - Dark brown with reddish highlights. A strong pour provides a small of-white head that quickly settles into a razor thin cap.

S - Sweet woody bourbon, vanilla, apples, sticky caramel/toffee.

T - Matches the nose with sweet caramel/toffee, slightly charred, sugary bourbon wood with heavy apple fruit. There's a strong barley note running right down the middle. Some peppery hops are there to combat the sweetness and grow in bitterness toward the finish. Familiar "Marshall" tannins start showing up added some nutty English dryness, with strawberries emerging toward the finish. The finish sets up semi-sweet with a quick dryness at the end with alcohol and charred tannins lingering.

M - Chewy at times but overall a very soft feel, low carbonation, medium body, alcohol comes out as it warms.

A sublime aroma with sweet and comforting bourbon laced malts that make you want to inhale slow and deep. The flavors match the sweetness but there's a dryness that keeps things in check. Plenty of barrel there but nothing over the top. Very smooth and full flavored with some minor tannins and alcohol flaws showing up on the finish. Happy 5th Anniversary Marshall!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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: 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.
