Bottle from Total Wine right near the brewery in Tampa. Pours dark brown color with a big khaki head on top. Big whiskey aromas, vanilla, caramel, molasses, oak. The bourbon is strong with this one. Big rich vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, molasses, bourbon is so smooth here. Lots of wood as well. Big and rich mouthfeel as usual from these guys, low plus carbonation, oh yeah. Another beautiful barrel aged beer from CCB. Yum.

A- opaque black with a cola colored rim. Thin, creamy khaki head with good retention and beautiful lacing.

S- intense aromas of bourbon and oak intermingled with toffee and dried dates. Really intense. It has a slightly smoky edge to it.

T- just like the aroma, oak dominates. Lots of toffee and raisin, and dates as well. I get a nondescript nuttiness as well. A lot of alcohol is present, giving an intense warming effect.

M- thick, rich and creamy. Light carbonation. Warming.

O- a very solid release from Cigar City.
