Half inch light mocha head on a black body. Cap and collar, small splotchy lacing.

Sweet bourbon notes in the nose.

Pretty damn smooth bal-ness. Toasted coconut hints from the oak. Light roastiness. Would guess about 11%abv.

Medium to medium-thin mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

Good call from egrace84 on the similarities to CWBBS. Dig the coconut notes. Thanks kawilliams81.

Thick motor oil poured from 12oz bottle dated 12/15/12.

A: black as night. Finger worth of brown head which quickly dissipated.

S: best part of this beer for me. Nice oak and bourbon followed by a thick bakers chocolate. barrel notes of vanilla and coconut.

T: follows the nose well. Nice bourbon chocolate malt flavor. Somewhat dry finish. Little to no alcohol presence for 10.1%

M: little bit of a let down. Given the aroma, the appearance, and how thick the beer pored I was expecting a more chewey mouth feel. Little thin but still ok. Somewhat understandable given the barrel aging.

O: great barrel aged offering from GF. Wish I had another bottle to age and enjoy. I would drink this regularly if available. Very drinkable for the style.
