On draft at Birch and Barley for the Perennial Artisan Ales beer dinner.
The beer is black with a thin beige collar. The nose is phenomenal. Chocolate, cinnamon sticks, spicy chilis. Unbelievable flavor, with everything coming together in beautiful harmony. Bourbon character is mild, but certainly present. A bit of alcohol in the finish, with a little bite from the bourbon. Lingering spicy heat in the finish. What an awesome beer.

Poured from a pitcher at Great Taste of the Midwest. Didn't particularly care for the non-BA version, so interested how I perceive this.
Visuals look good and smell is great.
Taste is completely different from what I recall the non-BA version to be. Whereas the flavors in the regular version were quite muddled, I get distinct cinnamon, chile, and chocolate flavors out of this. Very tasty. However, I get no barrel presence at all on this beer.
Overall, I finally understand the hype and ratings behind this beer. More barrel presence would be nice, but it is quite delicious.
