3.75/5 rDev -5.5%
Pours cola in color with a small off white head. Aroma is bourbon, cola sweetness, vanilla, and a smoky roastiness. First taste shows a nice roasted malt flavor that is quickly followed up by a cola sweetness and a bourbony finish. Some syrupy sweetness is cut by a tangy acidity. A nice oak and bourbon drying finish. The alcohol is very well balanced and the bourbon flavor and aroma comes thru nicely. The roasted smoky malts are also a nice dimension to this beer. The vanilla in the aroma and the cola-y sweetness in the aroma and taste were perhaps a bit strong for myself, but still a complex interesting beer.

A - A nice dark brown fading to darker brown. Small head that sticks and laces very nicely
S - A nice mixture of bourbon, vanilla and molasses
T - The taste does it for me. An awesome blend of molasses and vanilla. Not to be confused with a sweet beer! There is a mild bitterness to this beer
Overall I really enjoy one or two of these after a hard day of work.

Was at HopCat in Grand Rapids a few weeks ago and came across this lovely beer. Bartender served it to me in a tulip glass from a cask.
a- Very dark brown to black in color with ruby highlights if you hold it up to the light. Tan head that goes away really fast with very little lacing in the glass.
s- The aroma of this beer is what really attracted me. Coffee, Chocolate, Oak and Alcohol. As the beer warmed up the oak and alcohol really sines through though.
t- What I tasted from the beer was a malty oakiness with alcohol. The beer was very hot and the alcohol is very much present in this one.
m- Light carbonation due to the fact that the cask had been tapped for a few days. The beer has a medium mouthfeel that kind of lingers around after its down the hatch.
d- I doubt I could really have more than one every few hours. This is a very good beer I just think the alcohol in it was a bit much and came through too much to drink more than one in one sitting.
