Had a sample of this at the brewery and some out of a growler.
First sample was out of a tasting glass and the other out of a snifter.
Pours a black body with a nice tan head.
Smells like bourbon, chocolate, light coffee and toast.
Taste is boozy bourbon in the front carrying over to raisins and fruit cake to finish. Hops are there but subtle.
Full body and balanced with medium carbonation.
Maybe one of the best sipping beers I have ever had. This is where I think the rest in this style miss the boat with over the top representations of the style. Just a great sipping beer. Almost a reverse order in taste profile. Booze in front and not in the finish. Leaves you WANTING another sip, not BRAVING another sip.
Serving type: growler

Notes from 7/13/14 - Consumed from a snifter
A: 1/2 inch of dark khaki-colored head which quickly dissipates. Body is the color of flat cola.
S: Bourbon, vanilla, caramel/brulee, rich chocolate
T: Bourbon, molasses, vanilla, chocolate coffee ice cream. Slightly boozy. As it warms there's more bourbon and caramel sweetness.
M: A little thin on the front but turns syrupy on the back. Slight numbness from the booze.
O : Sweet and sippable. I enjoyed it less as it warmed, but delicious nevertheless.
Serving type: bottle
