22oz bottle courtesy of Holland, thanks a lot for the trade. Pretty cool box that this comes in, the cardboard is sort of raised/ridged so that it is like wood. Color is black or possibly super dark brown, good head too. Aroma is bourbon barrel, booze, sweet vanilla, not bad but no coffee that I could detect. Flavor is a nice bourbon vanilla, wood, hints of chocolate but again no coffee that my palate can pick up. My only complaint is that this is a little thin, I like bourbon barrel beers to be thicker. Still, nice flavor and aroma on this one and it does go down quite easily.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body with a nice off-white head. Thick collar. Nice surface foam.

Smell - Slightly acidic coffee. Some whiskey. Dark chocolate.

Taste - Acidic coffee. Too sharp, really. Some milk chocolate. Whiskey comes after the coffee and lingers into the finish.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Tingly booze.

Overall - Not so impressed, but drinkable.
