On tap at the Basin Pub in Bushnell's Basin, NY.

Pours a dark caramel brown, with no head or lacing.

Smells like bourbon, peat smoke, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and coconut.

This one tastes great. I get a ton of vanilla and coconut from the barrel, on top of smooth, well folded-in bourbon, some chocolate, peat smoke flavor, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and the slightest booze burn.

Other than the slightest boozy burn, this one goes down so easily, really drinkable. Low carbonation. Medium bodied, fairly rich.

This was awesome. It's incredible that the Basin Pub got a keg of this stuff.

Shared by cmrillo during BRoss242’s send-off party before he moves! Will miss you man! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured dark brown with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, caramel, wood, vanilla, and tart cherry. The flavor was of sweet malt, caramel, wood, vanilla, and sweet alcohol. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. The notes of bourbon on this one have really stuck around quite nicely and added a really nice level of complexity to an already solid brew. The vanilla kiss from this one definitely took the base brew to a new level and really kept me guessing on what I would pick up on next. The tart cherry was a little bit of a surprise if I am honest, but it did work quite well with everything else going on here. A definite must try if you have not done so before regardless of how you have to go about doing so.
