3.84/5  rDev -6.6%

A: pours a clear honey color with half a finger of white head that fades into a thin ring with a little lacing.

S: caramel and vanilla dominate here with some red licorice aromas underneath. Some sweet bourbon aromas follow.

T: caramel, vanilla, licorice, and caramel malts dominate with some sweet bread, oak, and bourbon flavors following. The finish is only slightly boozy.

M: medium-thick body with low carbonation, this beer is sticky sweet, but avoids being syrupy or watery.

O: an enjoyable beer overall. It doesn't have a ton of depth, but is tasty and drinkable.

Poured into a fluted glass at Duckworth's, Park Rd Charlotte NC.

Low carbed, slight head, clear clean amber colored brew. Thinner than I expected, more chocolate too, but there's a lot of vanilla and bourbon in there swimming around. It's only slightly boozy, and at 10.5% it should be. I'm smelling bread & malt, tasting that too, along with loads of caramel and raisins. This isn't quite what I expected, but it's a damn good beer that I'd definitely have again.

@ Bottle Revolution

(Notes from the 1st anniversary party)

Clear chestnut color with a slender bubbly ring of a head on the surface. Sweet, sticky aromas of caramel, vanilla, bourbon, and warm, buttery cookies. Hoppy fruit flavors transitioning to thick bourbony malts, maple, some lingering oak, booze, and dark fruit. Quite sweet & decadent, but with an off-setting hop bitterness that I think makes it more palatable. Thick, slick, and creamy with some bitterness. A sweet sipper, but very good.
