Appearance: Cola brown with a tan head that streaks some lacing

Smell: Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, molasses and Bourbon

Taste: Surprisingly bitter, up front, which may be the coffee and may be the hop bill; chocolate and molasses tones build but the Bourbon really comes on strong in the middle; the finish was slightly phenolic

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I found the beer rather unbalanced; sometimes beers like this have the flavors blend together - other times they clash; this one was a clasher

Pours with one finger of off white foam on a black body. The head fades quickly and leaves nice lace. Vanilla, whiskey, and herbal, fruity coffee. Smoky coffee and caramel up front with lots of dark chocolate in the finish. A fairly thick body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish. Nicely done, the barrel character is mostly in the aroma, while the flavors profile is full of dark chocolate and coffee. Subtle and well balanced.

Single finger head with excellent lacing on a near jet black/dark brown body. Aroma is a little light with lots of caramel and brown sugar with additional notes true bourbon, a little coffee and milk chocolate. Flavor follows with bourbon, light coffee, roasted malt, and a little chocolate. This one has a great caramel aroma. The coffee is well applied although I want more from the coffee, definitely not over done or too bitter. This is an excellent beer.
