Came home from work tonight and the wife surprised me with a 32 ounce growler of the Ol' Dirty Beaver. Poured into a crystal tumbler. I let the growler sit out for an hour before cracking it - perfect temperature!

Pours viscous and black with mahogany edges when held up to a light source, solid tan head with great retention, decent lacing. Tons of bourbon up front, musty wood, burnt toast, vanilla, espresso and dark chocolate. Strong bourbon and dry barrel, just a flash of warm booze that dissipates quickly with vanilla, sweet dark chocolate and fresh roasted coffee rounding out the overall flavor nicely. Big body, creamy, light carbonation with an extremely dry finish.

I cannot stress how much nicer this beer gets as it warms up...so many hidden flavors and slight nuances that open up with each passing minute out of the fridge.

Serving type: growler
